July 21, 2011- Padre Pio Under Investigation: The Secret Vatican Files

// July 21st, 2011 // 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. This book can be purchased at: http://www.ignatius.com/Products/PPUI-P/padre-pio-under-investigation.aspx Ignatius Press also has a number of DVDs about Padre Pio.
