Padre Pio: The Stigmatist

Rev. Charles Mortimer Carty

“Renowned for the stigmata, which modern medical science could not explain, Padre Pio also possessed other unusual qualities, such as bilocation, celestial perfume, the reading of hearts, miraculous cures, remarkable conversions and prophetic insight…
“Padre Pio’s hands, which the faithful can see while he celebrates Mass, are covered with blood, and the wounds seem bigger than they are in reality. Washing them with water, the stigmata appear as circular wounds, about two centimeters in diameter, in the center of the palm. Equal wounds are found on the back of the hands in such a position that they give the impression that the wounds meet each other and the hands are pierced through and through or transfixed, so that a bright light should be seen through the stigmata.”

Behind the Lodge Door: Church, State and Freemasonry in America

Paul A. Fisher

“This book shows how for over 150 years the political policy of the United States was marked by governmental cooperation with and encouragement of Christianity in the schools and in social and political life. However, that situation changed dramatically beginning in 1941 when the Supreme Court for the first time in its history became dominated by justices who were members of the Masonic fraternity. It was a dominance that continued for the next 25 years and resulted in the imposition of an alien secular humanism on American education and the country’s political life… In this well-documented investigative report, author Paul Fisher lifts the veil on the subterranean war that has been waged against church and state by the Masonic fraternity for over 200 years, even to the point of influencing U.S. Supreme Court decisions.”
