Padre Pio from in Pietrelcina, southern Italy, also known as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. He died in 1968 when I was six. Padre Pio became famous for presenting stigmata for most of his life, thereby generating much interest in the Catholic community. He was both beatified (1999) and canonized (2002) by Pope John Paul II.
“Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer. Have courage and do not fear the assaults of the Devil.”Padre Pio
May Jesus Confront you in all your afflictions.
May He sustain you in dangers, watch over you always with His grace, and indicate the safe path that leads to enternal salvation.
And my He render you always dearer to His Divine Heart and always more worthy of Paradice. Amen.
