Fra’ Elia was born in 1962 in the Apulia region of Italy. Already as a child he was favoured with supernatural communications, and, during Lent, he was unable to eat, Neither his family nor physicians understood why. After being employed by the Postal Service, he entered with the Capuchin Friars.
When, at 27 years of age, the stigmata appear, Fra Elia vehemently refuses them. He even leaves the Capuchin convent hoping that they would cease... but no! He then returns to a monastery to study his religious vocation. Finally he understood and accepted his vocation: he will be an 'Apostle of God' in the world and for the world. In his own way he will follow Padre Pio's mission.
Every Friday Brother Elijah's sufferings are more painful, and every year, he suffers the Passion during Holy Week. Attested to by prominent medical specialists, he actually dies on Good Friday at three o'clock and is reborn in the same way that Christ did 2000 years ago.
Guided by his guardian angel, Brother Elijah has many charismatic gifts, notably those of exorcism, bi-location, and of healing.
In Volume 1, Brother Elijah: Charisms and Stigmata, the author, Fiorella Turolli, presented the story of this extraordinary man who walks in the footsteps of Padre Pio.
In this second volume, she makes us experience the beginnings of the Congregation of the Apostles of God, the search for a convent through meetings and first missions, interspersed with miraculous events supported by many testimonies. The life of Brother Elijah is a concrete manifestation of the love of God.
During Holy Week of 2003, Brother Elijah was the object of studies and monitoring on the part of Dr. Marco Margnelli, an expert in supernatural phenomena. His research was presented on Italian television in the broadcast Miracoli.

For those who have not yet read the first two volumes, let us recall primarily the quest, the mission and the vocation of Brother Elia that remained problematic and painstaking until the day he found, in the diocese of Terni, a sympathetic bishop who gave him the opportunity to respond favourably to his vocation as the founder of the Congregation of the Apostles of God.
Elia Cataldo, Brother Elia in religion, was born on February 20th, 1962, the eighth child of a family of peasants in the Apulia region of southern Italy. At the age of seven, he saw angels for the first time, and at twelve years old, he walked to school in conversation with the Virgin Mary by his side. Guided by Lechitiel, his powerful guardian angel, the very same who served Jesus during His Agony, Brother Elia was granted many charismatic gifts, notably the stigmata of Jesus, ecstasies, reading of consciences, out-of-body experiences, bi-location, healings and conversions, exorcism, visions of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, Padre Pio, his mentor, and many other saints, like Mary Magdalene.
In this day and age of such rampant materialism, relativism and agnosticism which stifle the faith in God and religion, these astonishing signs of Heaven are particularly useful in this asphyxiation in order to restore man's sense of God and spirituality.

"This book is exactly what I've been looking for - my main priority being the New Evangelization. It's an answer to all those who want to do something about that 'personal relationship with Jesus Christ,' which sometimes sounds more like a flowery fantasy for cherubs on clouds.
"This is not a book for angels, but for the ordinary little person in each of us - including clergy, scholars, and bishops. It's a how-to manual for the New Evangelization that can make growing in holiness as natural as breathing (Fr. Gaitley even has a section on that!). It opens hearts, including my own, to a fuller meaning of Divine Mercy (with the help of St. Therese of Lisieux).
"And finally, what characterizes this work, and all of Fr. Gaitley's writings for that matter, is his trademark amalgam of humor, clarity, and directness - all of which are ways of being spiritually and intellectually honest."

News of tears flowing from a statue of Our Lady in a convent in Akita, Japan, spread through the entire nation following a series of articles in the publication Catholic Graph. Over a considerable time newspapers, magazines, radio and television have covered these events. Church authorities considered it prudent to maintain quiet.
On Easter Sunday, 1984, 22nd of April, the Most Rev. John Ito, the Bishop directly responsible, issued a pastoral letter declaring "the events of Akita" to be supernatural... Since that time pilgrims have come in ever greater numbers from all parts of Japan and from many other nations. - From the preface.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, I consecrate my body and soul to be entirely one with Your Heart, being sacrificed at every instant, on the altars of the world, giving praise to the Father and pleading for the coming of His Kingdom...

Following up his international best-selling book, An Exorcist Tells His Story, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the renowned chief exorcist of Rome, expands on some of the key topics of his previous book, covering important details about demonic or occult issues. He uses concrete examples from his own experiences and those of other exorcists to illustrate and substantiate his points.
Since satanic sects, occultism, seances, fortune-tellers and astrologers are so widespread today, Father Amorth asks the question why is it so difficult today to find an exorcist, or a priest who is an expert in this field? The example and the teaching of Christ is very clear, as is the tradition of the Church. But today's Catholics are often misinformed.
Exorcisms are reserved for appointed priests, while all believers can make prayers of liberation. What is the difference? What norms must be followed? What problems are still open and unresolved in this field?
The new book by Father Amorth answers these and many other questions, supporting his discourse with a rich exposition of recent facts. A valuable, practical and instructive manual for priests and lay people, on how to help many who are suffering.
