This is a papal fidelity site.
The mission of the St. Padre Pio Center for Deliverance Counseling, as an outreach of the Oblates and Missioners of St. Michael in its apostolate of educating the Faithful on issues of spiritual warfare, is to glorify our Lord and our Blessed Mother. This is accomplished by assisting the Faithful, according to the Holy Scriptures and the Holy Catholic Church, to participate in the Spiritual Warfare against Satan as Apostles of the Latter Times.
Saint Louis de Montfort, one of the saints of the charism of our Community, wrote:
Mary will raise up apostles of the latter times to make war against the evil one. . . . But the power of Mary over all the devils will especially shine forth in the latter times, when Satan will lay his snares against her heel: that is to say, her humble slaves and poor children, whom she will raise up to make war against him. They shall be little and poor in the world's esteem, and abased before all like the heel, trodden underfoot and persecuted as the heel is by other members of the body. But in return for this they shall be rich in the grace of God, which Mary shall distribute to them abundantly. They shall be great and exalted before God in sanctity. Superior to all creatures by their lively zeal, and so well sustained with God's assistance that, with the humility of their heel, in union with Mary, they shall crush the head of the devil and cause Jesus Christ to triumph.
We are those Apostles of the Latter Times!
This Mission is accomplished by assisting the Faithful:
- ...to become informed and educated about the dangers
and realities of the occult and demonic philosophies as a
real and present social, mental health, medical, criminal,
and spiritual problem of our society;
- ...to help spiritually mature leaders and workers in
their respective apostolates to understand the issues of
spiritual warfare; and
- ...to proclaim the message of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, under obedience to the Pope and Magisterium of His Church, as the only genuine deliverance and healing possible from occultism and doctrines of demons and as the only true means for victory in Spiritual Warfare against Satan.
