Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: "There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!"

While originally written in 1753, Father Pastrovicchi's work was also printed by TAN in 1980 with the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. It documents St. Joseph's remarkable life, including his severe penances, love of holy things, and frequent instances of levitation.
