Pio Words of Faith (from the
Padre Pio Novena
MAXIMS OF PADRE PIO:
the study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds
“The life of a Christian is nothing but a perpetual
struggle against self; there is no flowering of the soul to
the beauty of its perfection except at the price of pain.”
“Whoever does not meditate is like someone who never
looks in the mirror before going out, doesn’t bother
to see if he’s today, and may go out dirty without knowing
it. The person who meditates and turns his mind to God, who
is the mirror of his soul, seeks to know his fault, tries
to correct them, moderates his impulses, and puts his conscience

By popular demand, we will run a six week series
– Brewing Theology (coffee, not beer!) – for anyone
interested. We will meet: on wednesday morning,
at the Monsignor Healy Room in the Convent/Parish
Offices of Saint Patrick, after the 9 AM Daily Mass. We
will start a little before 9:45 am and end by 10:45
am. Coffee will be served! This first series will take up specific
questions regarding Satan from the important and evocation book,
I See Satan Fall Like Lightening, by René Girard. No previous study,
however, is necessary or assumed. These questions will guide us:
1. Have you ever really wondered about SATAN; biblically referred
to in the book of Job as, “the chief prosecuting magistrate, the
prosecutor in a case at court”, and as most of us recall from our
catechism classes, “Lucifer” the fallen Angel, as well as a murderer?
2. How can we recognize him as he goes about his work?
3. How are we unknowingly pulled into his plan and his works?
4. How and why does God allow Satan to achieve as much as he does?
5. How did Jesus defeat Satan?
6. How does all this help us make sense of the world today?
