SaintCast#14, St. Bonaventure, Eucharistic Congress, CA mission soundseeing, John the Baptists hand, audiofeedback 312-235-2278
Just back from the Atlanta Eucharistic Congress and the informal SQPN summit - a great time was had by all. This week's special saint was the subject of a special audio soundseeing tour of one of the California missions founded by Junipero Serra, Mission San Buenaventura. Join Paul and the kids as they tour this church in downtown Ventura, California. So much info this week we couldn't go over the saint calendar . . perhaps a reason for a second SaintCast this week. . . The hand of John the Baptist makes an appearance in Russia. Phil sends in a question for the Relicman in our "Ask the Relicman" segment. St. Jeopardy answers from last week, a new quiz, and much more on this week's SaintCast.

SaintCast Episode #13, St. John Francis Regis, Audio St. Jeopardy, New Segment "Ask Relicman," Feedback Number 312-235-2278
Today on the SaintCast we debut a new segment, "Ask the RelicMan." We have our first Audio St. Jeopardy, as well as our first audio listener feedback responses! An incredibly saintly man is profiled in today's SaintCast, the patron of Kansas City, Missouri, St. John Francis Regis. He was a preacher who loved the poor, and spoke from the heart, converting thousands. A Jesuit who desired martyrdom in the Americas, he was asked to provide missions to Hugenot France in the 1600's. He inspired many including St. John Vianney, the Cure of Ars. Feasts this week include the Traditional Feast of Corpus Christi on Thursday in much of the world, and the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua.
