October 16, 2013 – Steve dos Santos, C.PP.S.

// October 16th, 2013 // No Comments » // Francesca and Friends

Francesca Franchina MS Ed. talks with Father Steve dos Santos, C.PP.S. (Missionaries of The Precious Blood) about Evangelization Today and Evangelization ala St . Gaspar del Bufalo, Founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood in Italy in the 1800′s which has spread throughout many countries and still evangelizing! St. Gaspar’s method of Evangelization and Re-Catechizing “Missions” even converted a whole town (Soninno, Italy) that didn’t welcome or even like him! St. Gaspar’s time was a time of turmoil for Christians and the Catholic Church. Gaspar del Bufalo as a child contracted small pox and was losing his vision at 18 months old but was healed through the blessing he received of the relic of St. Francis Xavier at the Gesu in Rome. St. Gaspar was attracted to the Precious Blood and founded an order with the charism of The Precious Blood that is taught ,preached and received with a new ardor and understanding in today’s New Evangelization. This spirituality, prayer and teaching of St. Gaspar gathered and converted souls in Italy after the Napoleonic Era which was at odds with the Papal State. The French Revolution changed the horizon for Christians at the time, banishing priests and Catholicism into exile (as was St. Gaspar) and even martyrdom for some Catholics as Napoleon’s regime even horrifically enshrined the goddess of reason in the Tabernacle of the Cathedral Notre Dame. Napoleon’s eventual downfall and banishment from Italy brought forward the blessings of the Missionaries of The Precious Blood Charism and Spirituality that continues and is held in blessed esteem and practice today in the USA, South America, Europe, India and many other locales. Father Steve serves as Executive Assistant to the Provincial of the Missionaries of The Precious Blood in the Province of Cincinnati Provincial Administration located in Dayton, OH and has conducted Precious Blood Missions, Retreats and is active in Renewal.
