Meeting St. Padre Pio

First 70 Years of Fr. Rookey’s Priesthood & Meeting St. Padre Pio

This video was made in tribute to Fr. Peter Mary Rookey, O.S.M. who celebrated his 70th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood on May 17, 2011. The video was produced with great love by his close friends, Sara and Daniel Zervos. It includes Fr. Rookey’s memories of meeting St. Padre Pio whose Masses he attended many times while serving as the Assistant to the General of the Servite Order in Rome from 1953 to 1959.
