// July 21st, 2011 // No Comments » // Uncategorized

Ken talks with Anthony Ryan, Marketing Director for Ignatius Press about their recently published book Padre Pio Under Investigation: The Secret Vatican Files by Italian priest/historian Father Francesco Castelli. In 1921 the Vatican instructed Bishop Rossi to visit Padre Pio and write a report on his findings. These findings were stored in the Vatican archives but not made publically available until Pope Benedict XVI opened the archives in 2006. This new book relies on the released documents to reveal aspects of Padre Pio’s early life, shortly after he received the stigmata.

 Ken talks with Dr Michael Pakaluk the editor of The Appalling Strangeness of the Mercy of God.  The Story of Ruth Pakaluk, Convert, Mother, Pro-Life Activist published by Ignatius Press.  In today’s anti-life society, the world needs the example of women who are beacons for the culture of life.  Well know author Peter Kreeft knew Ruth and has said that Ruth was the most effective and inspiring pro-life speaker he had ever heard.  She was such a compelling, articulate pro-life debater that eventually Planned Parenthood spokeswomen refuse to spar with her in public. Kreeft goes on to say, “In this book you will meet a truly wonderful person.” Dr Pakaluk’s book can be purchased at: http://www.ignatius.com/Products/ASMG-P/the-appalling-strangeness-of-the-mercy-of-god.aspx
