We've received a bleg from one of our Hadleybloggers for some information on Fr. Ralph Di Orio. Here is the following:
In the late '70s a priest came to St Cloud. He had the scriptural gift of healing (mostly physical ailments), and many people were healed at a number of services that were held at the Catholic High School gymnasium in St Cloud in 1979, I believe. At that time, he was from New England (Massachusetts?), and I now recall his full name as Fr. Ralph Di Orio (I hope I am remembering correctly). As I read Scripture, his gift was practiced in a Godly manner that gave God the glory, and in the services I attended, he deflected any attention to himself. Almost in an "apostle" -like manner. If you can find any information on this man and his Christian service, I'd appreciate very much. I was always impressed with his humble spirit.
I've Googled a bit of information on him, but if you know anything about him or have any information you can share, our blegger would be grateful. Thanks!
