Bl. Alberione Pray For Us

Today is the Feast of Bl. James Alberione. He was an Italian priest and founder of the Society of St. Paul and the Daughters of St. Paul. In a special way he saw how media could be used to evangelize and spread the Gospel. He died on November 26th 1971. 
He was beatified on April 27th 2003 by Pope John Paul II.
In the homily given by Pope John Paul II on the day of of the beatification, Pope John Paul II said:

Bl Alberione felt the need to make Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life, known "to all people of our time with the means of our time", as he liked to say. He was inspired by the Apostle Paul, whom he described as a "theologian and architect of the Church", remaining ever docile and faithful to the Magisterium of the Successor of Peter, a "beacon" of truth in a world that is so often devoid of sound spiritual references. "May there be a group of saints to use these means", this apostle of the new times was in the habit of repeating.

Recently during a meeting of the Children's Rosary at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Connecticut USA, we were able to have a first class relic of Bl. Alberione present. The children and those in attendance at the Children's Rosary were able to venerate the relic at the end of the Rosary. In a special way we prayed for the members of the Children's Rosary.

Today on the Feast of Bl. Alberione all the members of the Children's Rosary and all who help the Children's Rosary were prayed for while venerating a relic of Bl. Alberione.

Bl. Alberione Pray For Us. Amen.

A special thank you to Tran for allowing the children to be able to meet the saints in a very special way.
