Saint of the Day

St. Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968)
Padre Pio was the first priest to ever receive the stigmata. His life was full of miracles. He would hear confessions for several hours every day, where he would read the consciences of those who held back. He was known to bilocate, levitate, and heal by touch.

Reflections from the Saints

Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit, because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.
– St. Pio of Pietrelcina

Life in Christ: Catechism #2420

The Church makes a moral judgment about economic and social matters, "when the fundamental rights of the person or the salvation of souls requires it." In the moral order she bears a mission distinct from that of political authorities: the Church is concerned with the temporal aspects of the common good because they are ordered to the sovereign Good, our ultimate end. She strives to inspire right attitudes with respect to earthly goods and in socio-economic relationships.
