St. Padre Pio Comments

Francesco, named in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, was born to Giuseppa and Grazio Forgione, peasant farmers, in the small Italian village of Pietrelcina on May 25, 1887. From his childhood, it was evident that he was a special child of God. Francesco was very devout even as a child, and at an early age felt drawn to the priesthood.

    Dear Padre Pio, I have known of you for many years and have prayed to you. Now I finally know and understand the fulness of praying. Saint Pio,I need your intercession for my daughter and for her daughter. They are both very distressed about the life they are leading. My daughter,Deb,is so stressed for her daughter Mackenzie that shhe cries all the time and is at the braking point of their lives. Mackenz is away at college& is very confused about her life. She is doing fool hearted things as flunking out of ,school, she says and drinking at her age and I am afraid of what else she may do to be hurtful to her and the familly. Please Saint Pio , show them they need to come back to church and have prayer time to talk to each other. They are booth very loving and I think the divorce of Deb & her husband, Mkz dad was very hard on Mkz, and she blames her step father is to blame, not her dad who has not had a job fo 4 yrs.and he is avery loose man ,Show us the way Father Pio to pray for them and I will start a novena to you to help us. Thank you for your blessings, Virginia

    Dear Father Pio,

    I ahve visited Padre Pio Chruch here in Quezon City, Philippines. It was one of the most solemn mass I ever attended. I want to go back because of the peacefulness I felt after the mass.
    I asked for the grace of having our first baby. I know and I believe it will be given soon to us. I'd like to thank you in advance for the early christmas gift.
    St. Pio, you are truly inspiration to us. I hope you will continue praying for us.
    Amen.

    Each member of Christ is unique, but it would appear that some are so to a greater extent.That is why I like to see what God has done in each one of them and have recours to their prayers and merits . Many thanks on behalf of all the rest of us in God's Family. Allan

    I am a 65 year old disabled veteran and I have emphysema, which is getting worse by the day. I know it is my own fault for smoking to begin with, but I pray that you will help me to get better so I can help my wife with more of the work. She is already trying to take care of her mother and needs less time doing all the work she has to do. So, please help me by praying for me.


    Thank You and God Bless
