WEEKLY FEATURE

EWTN Honors Padre Pio

Padre Pio, a stigmatist with the gift of “reading hearts” in the confessional, is (with Mother Teresa) probably one of the most popular saints of our times. In honor of the 41st anniversary of his death on Sept. 23, 1968, EWTN will showcase his life and ministry with dozens of programs.

You and your family won’t want to miss “Night of the Prophet” at 8 p.m. ET, Saturday, Sept. 26. This is part of our new Saturday night series, which we call “EWTN Cinema.” This week’s feature film is about a reporter who traveled to San Giovani Rotondo to interview people who were close to the saint.
Other “don’t miss” programs include:

Padre Pio, the Priest Who Bore the Wounds of Christ, a series with Fr. Andrew Apostoli. Each episode features a major event from the saint’s life or covers one of his gifts or miracles. (Airs 6 a.m. ET from Saturday, Sept. 19 through Tuesday, Sept. 29.)

The God That Did Not FailThe God That Did Not Fail
Robert Royal


Faith and Reason Institute’s Dr. Robert Royal joins Host Doug Keck this week to discuss how the wisdom of Christianity built, and continues to sustain, the western world. To those serious about understanding the history and truth of the Faith, Doug says that this is a perfect overview of religion’s impact upon the shapers of Western civilization. Dr. Royal, who is also dean of Catholic Distance University’s graduate school, has also authored works on Dante, Christian martyrs of the 20th century, and the papal Swiss guard.
