Pope Pius V was beatified one hundred years to the day after his death, on May 1, 1672, and was subsequently canonized forty years later on May 22, 1712. History has told the story of this strong man, totally committed to his God, his Church, his religious order and his children, the people of God. He has been found to be a powerful soldier of the Counter-Reformation. He did what he did to stem the tide of Protestantism in the only way he knew how. And the Church has honored and rewarded him by raising him to the Communion of Saints. No greater reward can be given to a man of God. We thank You, Lord Jesus, for giving us this great Defender of the Faith at a time when we needed him desperately. Lord, we think You’ve given us a Pope Saint Pius V today in Pope John Paul II. Please give him strength and health. We need him.
