Padre Pio Miracle Man

I have seen different movies on Saint Padre Pio, but I was disappointed by all of them... until tonight when I watched this one:

Padre Pio Miracle Man
by Carlo Carlei
with Sergio Castellito as Padre Pio

In one word : Beautiful!

Movie available at Ignatius press:

Yes, indeed. This was a 'Great'movie for me also. I watched it for eight consecutive nights, when I first saw it a year ago.
I would highly recommend it as a family movie for this Season.

Father Demets a dit…

Well... why did not tell me what the title is ? Because last movie on Padre Pio that I watched ( before this one )was Italian too.... and was boring !

I recommand to watch the movie in Italian ( it's more authentic )... and if you don't understand Italian, there are English subtitles.

I don't own it yet but I am going to order a lot :)

I'd like to offer this story on my application that brings the prayer on iPhone.
I believe that prayer is Christian and Catholic from spreading. You wonder why you can publish the news and if you can spread it to your friends on the blog.

Sacred texts: Vatican embraces iTunes prayer book
5 days ago
VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican is endorsing new technology that brings the book of daily prayers used by priests straight onto iPhones.
The Vatican's Pontifical Council for Social Communications is embracing the iBreviary, an iTunes application created by a technologically savvy Italian priest, the Rev. Paolo Padrini, and an Italian Web designer.
The application includes the Breviary prayer book — in Italian, English, Spanish, French and Latin and, in the near future, Portuguese and German. Another section includes the prayers of the daily Mass, and a third contains various other prayers.
After a free trial period in which the iBreviary was downloaded approximately 10,000 times in Italy, an official version was released earlier this month, Padrini said.
The application costs euro0.79 ($1.10), while upgrades will be free. Padrini's proceeds are going to charity.
Monsignor Paul Tighe, secretary of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Social Communications, praised the new application Monday, saying the Church "is learning to use the new technologies primarily as a tool or as a mean of evangelizing, as a way of being able to share its own message with the world."
Pope Benedict XVI, a classical music lover who was reportedly given an iPod in 2006, has sought to reach out to young people through new media. During last summer's World Youth Day in Sydney, Australia, he sent out mobile phone text messages citing scripture to thousands of registered pilgrims — signed with the tagline "BXVI."
