SaintCast Episode #11, St. Gianna Molla, Sound Seeing tour of Shrine of St. Francis, Saint Jeopardy, St. Martin's Summer?
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.
