On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a Dialog news update, we chat with Susan De Bartoli, operator of Little Flower Pilgrimages, and author of the new book, "Welcoming the Christ Child with Padre Pio: Daily Reflections for Advent." St. Pio of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio) had a deep devotion to the Christ Child.  In this popular new book from Ave Maria Press, stories about the saint known for his stigmata and ability to bilocate are woven with scripture and prayer to help you experience Advent—Padre Pio’s favorite season—with greater hope and joy.
