Family, we must be the most blessed
servants of the Lord on this earth. He allows us to experience the most
beautiful and uplifting miracles.
We returned to Louisiana last week,
where we experienced Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos.
I use the term
“Experience” because we have never had the gift of seeing the power of
the following this Blessed has been given by Our Lord Jesus.
is fascinating, but even more fascinating is being eyewitnesses to a
following of thousands of faithful believers, taking part in a
three-times-a-year Mass and Healing Ceremony. You have had to be there
to believe how loved this priest is. For the Healing Service, which
took place after the Mass ended, there were anywhere from 1500 to 2000
people, waiting on line to be blessed. There were eight priests in four
aisles, blessing the people who waited up to an hour to receive this
special gift. And this for a priest whose life was snuffed out by
Yellow Fever after being on assignment in New Orleans for only 11
months. He has a following the likes of which you have never seen. And
hundreds of people give testimony of healings and conversions coming
about through the intercession of Blessed Seelos.
But who is this Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos,
and why is there such a great devotion to him?
There are those who had
called him a living saint during his lifetime. Very few people could
have anything but great admiration and love for him. He was born in Fussen, Germany in 1819. It was obvious to all around him, parents and
clergy alike, that this was a special child, destined to do great things
for God and for the Church. He always wanted the religious life. He
was not always sure how he wanted to serve. As a teenager, he walked
for 50 hours from his home town to Einseidlen, Switzerland to ask to
join the Benedictines there. He was refused admission, only because he
was too young. But the truth is that God had big plans for him in the
New World. He had either a vision or a locution from Our Lady, after
which he pledged to give his life to evangelizing as a missionary in the
New World. He became a member of the Redemptorist Order, and came to
the United States. Being a country boy from Bavaria, he was not very
happy when he arrived in the United States in 1843, but he wrote to his
family that he had made this decision and would live up to it. He spent
the next 24 years ministering to the people of the United States.
At first, his ministry was to Catholics
in western Pennsylvania. There were only 21 priests for 45,000
Catholics. Eventually, through the direction of St. John Neumann, who
was his first pastor in Pittsburgh, he and other German speaking priests
ministered to German-speaking immigrants. He went from associate pastor
to pastor to the rector of the seminary to the head of the
Redemptorists, back to his first love, Missionary work. During the
Civil War, years 1862-1865, he and a few other priests went up and down
the middle part of our country giving missions and retreats, dodging
bullets and the rough behavior of the soldiers on both sides of the
conflict. He appealed to President Lincoln to release the priests and
seminarians from the draft. He and another priest met with the
President, who was very cordial, but could not guarantee that this could
be done. However, none of the students were drafted.
For three years prior to his transfer to
his last parish in New Orleans, Louisiana, he was in charge of the
Redemptorist Mission Band. Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos and a group of other priests would travel
all over the middle states, including Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin,
Michigan, Ohio;, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and
Rhode Island. He not only considered mission work to be important, he
wrote to his sister in 1863, “It is properly the work in the
vineyard of the Lord; it is entirely apostolic work.”
One of his greatest strengths was in the
Confessional. Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos reminds us of Padre Pio and St. Jean Vianney. He
would spend hours in the Confessional. He was gentle but firm. He
begged the sinners from the pulpit to come to the confessional. He said
“O you sinners who have not courage to confess your sins because they
are so numerous or so grievous or so shameful. O, come without fear or
trembling! I promise to receive you with all mildness; if I do not keep
my word, I here publicly give you permission to cast it up to me in the
confessional and to charge me with a falsehood.” He chided his fellow
priests who did not have compassion for penitents; “The priest who is
rough with the people does injury to himself….he sins, at least in
ignorance…he scandalizes all who see and hear him…Thousands reject the
Church and the Sacraments because they have been badly treated by a

story begins in one of the most unlikely places, in the home of one of the
wealthiest bankers of his day, Francis A. Drexel. Toward the end of the
Nineteenth Century, at the time Mother Cabrini was being called to aid one
suffering minority, the Italian immigrants in the United States - persecuted
because of language and customs differences, God was raising up another
missionary, only to those alienated because of color and origin, although their
origin (that of the Indians or Native Americans) dated back farther than those
who were oppressing them.
let us begin at the beginning. Our journey to the life of a future Saint takes
us to Philadelphia, where, in 1774 the first Continental Congress sent a
petition to King George of the British Isles called the Declaration of Rights.
Then in 1776, Congress met and representing the original Thirteen States of our
country, drafted the Declaration of Independence. With this declaration, the
early founding fathers desired to separate from England so that they could
insure the citizens of this fair land Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of
Happiness. But sadly not all were privy to these rights; as always some were
more equal than others...
