Prayer for the Feast Day of St. Pio

Today is the feast day of the great St. Pio of of Pietrelcina, a special friend of mine and hopefully of yours too! This holy priest was the only priest in the history of the Catholic Church to bear the Stigmata. A powerful intercessor for us in Heaven, he bore this special suffering for 50 years. Ask him to pray to God for what you need and to accept God's Holy Will in your sufferings.  St. Pio, devoted son of Mary and loving bearer of the Passion of Our Lord, pray for us!





God our Father, by Your Spirit You raised up St. Pio of Pietrelcina to show Your people the way to perfection. You made him a pastor of the Church to feed Your sheep with his words, and to teach them by example.

Help us by his prayers to keep the faith he taught, and to follow the way of life he showed us. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.



"Walk cheerfully and with a sincere and open heart as much as you can, and when you cannot always maintain this holy joy, at least do not lose heart or your trust in God."
—Padre Pio
