EWTN Interview - Fr. Bernard McGuckian, SJ

I was delighted to have the opportunity to tell Fr. Mitch Pacwa about the Pioneer Association on EWTN live. I’m glad you have taken the time to visit our site.


I told Fr. Mitch how four Irish women and one man took to heart the words of Jesus that some demons can only be cast out by prayer and fasting. It produced a moral miracle in their home country. They did something so simple that even a child can understand it: They promised to say a short prayer each day for the victims of alcohol addiction, to give up even the most innocent use of alcohol and promised to wear a small emblem of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Between 1898 and 1918, over 200,000 Irish men and women followed suit. It changed their own lives, the lives of members of their families and indeed their whole country. Today we estimate that there are upwards of 500,000 members worldwide.

You could be the one to start something similar in your own family or country. Think and pray about it.
