In his great love for everyone, St. Padre Pio felt everyone's pain, whether moral, physical, or mental. He wanted to share their pain and help to alleviate it through his intercessory prayers, through his gifts of healing and reading of souls, and through his own endless suffering from the ever-bleeding stigmata.
Bring your sufferings, your pain, and your confusion to St. Padre Pio as you meditate on his writings, experiences, and advice. Through Padre Pio's intercession, God's loving presence will change your life and give you joy, peace, and inner security. You will be more accepting of your sufferings, knowing that Jesus suffers right along with you and for you.
"Padre Pio Father Pio bore the stigmata, the five ever-bleeding wounds of Christ Crucified in his hands, feet, and side for fifty years. Through his many gifts, including healing, reading of souls, and counseling, he was used by God to bring help and comfort and healing to the millions who sought him during his long life."
--- From the Introduction
"We should be on the alert for every slightest sign of uneasiness, and as soon as we realize we have fallen into dejection, we must turn to God with filial confidence and abandon ourselves completely to Him.... I beg you to set aside these excessive and useless anxieties. The Lord is with you, and there is no room for fear."
--- Padre Pio
