Publisher's Summary

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Padre Pio is an essential for any Christian. The foundation for Padre Pio's work in the world was love. His love of God became intertwined with his love of humanity so that the two became inseparable and unwavering. Padre Pio is notable not for his erudition or even his teachings, per se, but for the man he was and the intercessor he continues to be. Pio gave himself to Christ as a spiritual victim for the souls of sinners. With sweetness, humility, and good cheer, he brought everyone who encountered him closer to Christ. People who met him understood immediately that they were in contact with a Christlike figure. Those who attended his Mass and saw his union with the divine felt as though they had witnessed in person Christ's Passion on the Cross. During his lifetime, Padre Pio brought vast numbers back to devotion to Christ, and, as he himself foretold, in death he has been able to do still more.

God's Promise.

I am very humbled by Father Pio's dedication and his love Jesus Christ. Carrying and experiencing the pain and suffering of our our Lord Jesus Christ. Submitting himself to carry all of the pain and suffering from others. I, myself have been suffering from constant pain. But I have strong faith in God and never lose hope. Never ask him why or even entertain in my heart that God is punishing. Because He is a merciful and love us unconditionally. That amidst my pain and suffering I know in my heart that He is with me. The earthly sufferings is just temporary and when I passed I will received the promise of Jesus Christ that we will join Him and be with His and our Lord God. Where we find peace, love and free from any pain and sufferings.

not entirely what I expected

This book was very short. Almost too short. There were very broad strokes of information and not nearly enough details of miraculous happenings that I would have appreciated. If you are looking for a bare bones biography this is it. I would have preferred something more elaborate. the narration was a bit strange for me as well. Not the best voice to convey the message.
