“Theological insights are gained not only from between two covers
of a book, but from two bent knees before an altar. The Holy Hour
becomes like an oxygen tank to revive the breath of the Holy Spirit in
the midst of the foul and fetid atmosphere of the world.”
~Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

Saint of the Week:
St. Bernardine of Siena
Died: May 20, 1444
Born: September 8, 1380
Memorial: May 20
Canonized: May 24, 1450
Bernardine’s charismatic preaching filled the piazze of Italian cities. Thousands
of listeners flocked to hear him. He was a renowned peacemaker, in the Franciscan tradition, who
tried to calm feuding clans and factions in the turbulent political world of the Renaissance. His
preaching visits would often culminate in mass reconciliations, as listeners were persuaded to
exchange the bacio di pace, or kiss of peace.
