The other saint with amazing miracles was Francesco di Paola from XV Century. For example: "He also raised the dead, which included his nephew, and, he also raised his favourite pet animals from the dead, including a trout that had already been cooked, and a pet lamb that had already been eaten. Calling the lamb's name into the furnace where the bones and fleece had been thrown in by the workmen …More

Calling the lamb's name into the furnace where the bones and fleece had been thrown in by the workmen who had eaten the creature, the lamb skipped out alive from the oven!", and, "In the year 1464, he was refused passage by a boatman while trying to cross the Strait of Messina to Sicily. He reportedly laid his cloak on the water, tied one end to his staff as a sail, and sailed across the strait with his companions following in the boat."

Those are some of my favorite stories of the Saints and their pets or companions as they would say. The fish he named Antonella, the lamb, Martinello.The cook slammed the fish on the ground and shattered it to pieces. They were all given human names. He was also a vegan and refused to eat animals as many Saints did. He also believed they continued to live after they died. Which I do as well. Thanks …More

I could not remember which Saint did those things.

😇 Le Père Pio est venu et, mettant sa main sur son épaule, a dit : « Alors c’est toi qui voulais nous tuer tous ? » Le général se mit à genoux devant Padre Pio, qui, comme d’habitude, lui avait parlé en dialecte de Benevento. Le général, cependant, était certain que le « moine » lui avait parlé en anglais. Les deux se sont fait des amis et le général, qui était protestant, s’est converti …More

The Italian film director Fellini had a religious upbringing but later became agnostic. I've always been a fan. He seemed very aware of religious things, however, and often commented obliquely on them in his films. After reading two books on Padre Pio, I asked myself, how did Fellini avoid commenting on Pio, certainly he must have known of him. Now, slowly, I am seeing things in Fellini that seem …More
The Italian film director Fellini had a religious upbringing but later became agnostic. I've always been a fan. He seemed very aware of religious things, however, and often commented obliquely on them in his films. After reading two books on Padre Pio, I asked myself, how did Fellini avoid commenting on Pio, certainly he must have known of him. Now, slowly, I am seeing things in Fellini that seem to take on new meanings, like this opening scene from La Dolce Vita (1960), which I believe is Fellini's secularized, transmogrified version of this monk appearing in the sky story. I think this suggests the incident was well-known in Italy at the time. By the way, the photographer in the helicopter is named Paparazzo, from which we get the plural, Paparazzi.
