JUNE 28, 1918: Spiritual Direction from St. Padre Pio in a letter to Atoneitta Vona
“You think yourself abandoned, … but I assure you that Jesus is holding you closer than ever to his divine heart.
Even Our Lord lamented the abandonment of his Father on the cross …
but has the Father ever, or could he ever, abandon his Son?
Proclaim your own fiat, your “let it be so,” in a surrendered way when you find yourself in such trials, and do not fear…
Write to me often about the state of your soul, and fear nothing.
All the love of the one who has a father’s heart for you will be applied on your behalf.
Although I am unworthy, I pray and have others pray for you all the time.
Be content to have Jesus treat you as he wishes, because he is always a very good father!”

ABOUT REVEREND FATHER EDWARD LOONEY (USA)
Fr. Edward Looney was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Green Bay June 6, 2015, and currently serves as Pastor of St. Francis and St. Mary Parish, Brussels and St. Peter/St. Hubert Parish, Lincoln/Rosiere.
At a young age, Fr. Looney fostered a devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, which has remained with him to this day. As a young boy, he joined the parish community for the Rosary after daily Mass. While growing up, he regularly watched The Song of Bernadette and became mesmerized by the story of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Marian pilgrimage has been central to Fr. Looney’s life. During the summer of 2005 Fr. Looney, as a high school sophomore, made a Marian pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help (Champion, WI). This pilgrimage opened the door of his heart to discern more seriously a priestly vocation. He has visited Marian shrines all across the world, including Lourdes, Fatima, Knock, Beauraing, Banneux, Pontmain, and Rue du Bac.
Fr. Looney began writing books while still in seminary, first penning a children’s book called The Story of Sister of Adele. He published other books including Breakfast in Bethlehem, Praying the Rosary with Sister Adele, and A Novena to the Queen of Heaven. Tan Publishing ceased publishing the above mentioned titles making them unavailable. TAN Books recently published Father Looney’s Shrine devotionals as Our Lady of Good Help: A Prayerbook for Pilgrims. His more recent books have reached the status as Catholic best sellers: A Rosary Litany and A Heart Like Mary’s, and A Lenten Journey with Mother Mary.
Fr. Looney’s writings have been featured in the pages of Catholic Digest and Missio Immaculate, in addition to the web on Catholic Exchange, Aleteia, Church Pop, and Homiletic and Pastoral Review. Fr. Looney formerly served as Godly Counsel for EWTN’s Morning Glory, and now is a regular contributor to Relevant Radio’s Morning Air. Further, he has traveled across the country delivering various Marian presentations at conferences and parishes.
A member of the Mariological Society of America, Fr. Looney has published in theological journals on topics related to Mariology including the Marian Spirituality of Thomas Merton (The Merton Seasonal, 2013) and Chiara Lubich (Marian Studies 2015), Fr. Daniel Lord, SJ (Marian Studies 2017) and on the Wisconsin Apparition (Marian Studies, 2011 and Chicago Studies, (2016). Fr. Looney has other research projects in the works and other articles pending publication.
