Welcome SQPN listeners, and Happy Feast of St. Rita! Today we present an audio sound seeing tour of the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi in San Francisco, California. Padre Pio for President? That's who one Italian legislator apparently voted for last week. . though as we learned on the first SaintCast, he died in 1968. Visit the archive to learn more about this holy man and stigmatist. More news on John Paul II's beatification and the miracle of the healing of a French nun of Parkinson's disease. We go over the Saints of the Week, and profile the pro-life saint, Gianna Molla, canonized May 16th, 2004. All this and a new Saint Jeopardy quiz on this week's SaintCast. Next week, what do we know of Mary Magdalene, and more on the history of the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi.

SaintCast Episode #10, The Incorruptibles, e-mail catch-up, How many Popes are Saints? A new call-in number 312-235-2278

Happy Mother's Day! Now we're back on a weekly schedule, with the longest SaintCast to date. Have you ever wondered about the remains of Saints who are said to be incorruptible? What does this mean? There are over 100 well-documented cases of bodies of saints remaining incorrupt for many, if not hundreds of years. We'll talk about this phenomenon, and give you resources for further study. Hear about the new beatifications that took place this past weekend. We'll go through the mail bag, and introduce a new voice feedback (call-in) number. Next week, a visit to the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi. . .

SaintCast Episode #9, Blessed Imelda Lambertini, Patron Saint of First Communicants, 1st Soundseeing Tour, St. Rita of Cascia

A bit delayed this week, but we present the first SaintCast soundseeing tour -- a visit to the beautiful Church of Sts. Peter and Paul in the North Beach District of San Francisco. In this season of First Communicants, we talk about the Blessed Imelda, who on May 12th, nearly 700 years ago, made her First Communion at age 11, and died in ecstasy. We answer last week's St. Jeopardy question - the Saint who suffered a thorn wound for years, St. Rita of Cascia. A new St. Jeopardy question for next week, podsafe music from Anne Davis, and more on this week's SaintCast. . .
