Question: What is a mystic?

Yesterday, September 23, was the feast day of one of the twentieth century’s greatest mystics, St. Padre Pio. St. Padre Pio was an Italian Capuchin friar who was known for his great piety and the extraordinary spiritual gifts that God gave him, including the stigmata and the ability to bilocate.

But what exactly is a mystic? Do all mystics receive these amazing gifts?

The following saints (and one blessed) were wonderful examples of using their God-given gifts to reach out to all of God’s children.

Today, we celebrate the feast of Saints Timothy and Titus, two bishops of the early Church who worked closely with St. Paul. Often, Paul is described as the spiritual father of Timothy and Titus. He guided them in their missions forming the early Church and profoundly influenced their own faith lives. Thanks to the collaboration of Paul, Timothy, and Titus, the early Church had a strong foundation in the geographical areas they evangelized.
