Default Teleportation And Bilocation,

I think i read somewhere that st faustina and st padre pio could bilocate and a nun saint ( i cant recall her name) would teleport and convert tribes




Who else in saints, blesseds, venerables and servants of god could bilocate or teleport?

Ah, you're thinking of Maria de Agreda. She was called "La Dama Azul" ("the woman in blue") and preceded many of the North American missionaries, helping to cultivate tribes in the Mexico/NM/AZ/TX area and smoothed their path, although she was a cloistered nun who never left her convent walls. There were about 500 bilocations over a period of 3 years, and there were two different inquisitions into it. However, she's most famous for having written "The Mystical City of God."

St. Catherine d'Ricci was another cloistered nun who would bilocate in order to have conversations with St. Philip Neri.

Alphonsus Liguori had a famous bilocation experience, where he was documented to have been at Pope Clement XIV's deathbed, although he was four days' travel away when it happened.

St. John Bosco, St. Anthony, St. Francis Xavier, St. Martin de Porres were all famous saints who were documented to have had the gift, although there are certainly others.

I think many saints had the gift of bilocation.
I believe it is only given as a charism to benefit the church and for a much greater good.
St Faustina was lifted in spirit to the bed of a dying man because her prayers were desperately needed. Most all incidents of bilocation are because of the deep devotion and piety of the individual and their love for others.

The point of bilocation is to show us a foretaste of our resurrection bodies -- you'll recall that Jesus went all over the place after the Resurrection, with matter itself now serving him as the angry ocean waves once did. Bilocation also demonstrates the communion of the saints in Christ and His Church, which has no barrier in mere distance.

St Martin de Porres is a very famous saint that could bilocate and it's written in most of his biographies.

Padre Pio is quite "modern." Also, just because we don't hear of it until after the people have passed and been canonized, doesn't mean it isn't happening right now to some.

I do not recall where I read this account of one of Padre Pio's bilocation incidents, however, I think it is worth sharing. During World War II a group of bomber planes had a mission to bomb an area of Italy, which evidently was near where Padre Pio's Capuchin Order were living, and they were flying ready to drop their cargo of bombs, but to their amazement they saw an image of a person gesturing not to come near. Obviously, they were shocked and amazed to the point that they turned around and did not carry out their mission. Upon returning to their departure point, some of the flight crew members were invited to meet some of the Capuchin Brothers and one of them happened to be Padre Pio. Many of the crew members were shocked again to recognize Padre Pio as the one they saw earlier that day on their flying mission up in the sky! The Capuchin Monestary was spared being bombed because of his bilocation gift. Perhaps because of his great holiness, he was allowed to experience a taste of our heavenly ressurrected state...to traverse the skies as angels and be anywhere at anytime. After all, our Lord appeared to the Apostles through locked doors, if you recall. He is only being allowed to experience what we all hope to if entitled to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

I'm preety sure Saint George Preca. First saint of Malta did this AS WELL and you could also say that he invented the light mystours since he and he got others to pray them within the rosary 50 years before pope john paul came out with it

I believe it still happens. It's just not the "in thing" to promote holy people to the world these days. In this day of "I have to have the answer to everything" people don't want to hear about sacred mysteries or things explained as mystical (in the Christian meaning of the word). I think this is very sad because as a result of this people lose their faith.

People didn't even believe in God when it WAS God they were looking at.
