Today is the feast of God’s Generals – the Archangels, St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael. We are at war and we have three mighty warriors at our side. Than we are off to the little chapel of the Portiuncula, the first church rebuilt by St. Francis of Assisi. I was privileged to give a homily in this chapel during Bishop Pepe’s Mass.
Today, we have a sound seeing tour of the church of San Damiano in Assisi. This is where Francis heard the cross speaking to him, “Francs, go rebuild my church which is falling into ruins.” We also have a review of a new full length motion picture on St. Padre Pio. Don’t forget to send us your feedback!
This is a continuation of my Sound Seeing Tours during my retreat in Assisi. Today we take a tour of the beautiful Basilica of St. Francis. This is the church that holds the tomb of the Saint of Assisi. It is made up of an upper and lower church and the tomb below. Attached to the basilica is the Sacred Convent where the Conventual Franciscan Friars live and pray. It has been the home of many famous Franciscans including St. Joseph of Cupertino.
Just retrned from my annual retreat! Was in Assisi and did a lot of recording. Here is a soundseeing tour of the Basilica of St. Clare. Also announced upcoming iPadre Video Cast. I’ll give more information in the next show. That will be on a seperate feed, so that if you don’t want it, you don’t have to get it.
