  • Fr. Rookey gives the reader an inspirational portrayal of the founder of his order who later became known as St. Anthony Mary Pucci. When an agnostic government gets into power, Fr. Anthony Pucci and his Servite community are out on the streets in Viareggia, Italy; church property was confiscated and seminaries were closed. He continually displays goodness toward those who do evil to him and his community. Blessed John XXIII canonized him at opening of Vatican II as model for the Council Fathers.

  • Peter Rookey

    Probably one of the most well-known priests of the Servite order is Fr. Peter Mary Rookey. Although a number of interesting books have been written about Fr. Rookey and his charism of healing, when asked about his gift, Father simply says, “It is God’s work, not mine - He does all the healing, I just pray.”In 1948, after having been healed miraculously from blindness, Fr. Peter Mary Rookey formed the Servite Order in Ireland. Father has traveled the world using his charism, including many trips to Medjugorje. Although Father does not travel as much now, in 2006 at the age of 90, Fr. Rookey made a pilgrimage to Medjugorje.
