 Our Description

In this book one sees the marvelous way in which Padre Pio dealt with people to heal their bodies, souls and hearts-through miracles, providential coincidences and other remarkable answers to prayers.

Madame Tangari (who was herself a remarkable person) describes how she met Padre Pio, how she became his spiritual daughter and how he guided her during the last eighteen years of his life. She tells stories of wonderful assistance that she and others received from Padre Pio regarding conversions, illness, bereavement, lost objects, broken marriage, irrational fear, business, getting out of Freemasonry and, of course, the spiritual life.

Madame Tangari describes Padre Pio's amazing gift of easily solving difficult problems with a few highly inspired words, enabling the petitioner to receive special graces and favors from God and begin life anew in happiness and peace. Stories of Padre Pio gives a rare, firsthand view of this great and holy priest.

St. Pio of Pietrelcina Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/23


Patron Of: Serenity

Also known as
    Francesco Forgione; Padre Pio of Pietrelcina
Memorial
    23 September
Profile
    Born to a southern Italian farm family, the son of Grazio, a shepherd. At age 15 he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin friars in Morcone, and joined the order at age 19. Suffered several health problems, and at one point his family thought he had tuberculosis. Ordained at age 22 on 10 August 1910.

    While praying before a cross, he received the stigmata on 20 September 1918, the first priest ever to be so blessed. As word spread, especially after American soldiers brought home stories of Padre Pio following WWII, the priest himself became a point of pilgrimage for both the pious and the curious. He would hear confessions by the hour, reportedly able to read the consciences of those who held back. Reportedly able to bilocate, levitate, and heal by touch. Founded the House for the Relief of Suffering in 1956, a hospital that serves 60,000 a year. In the 1920's he started a series of prayer groups that continue today with over 400,000 members worldwide.

    His canonization miracle involved the cure of Matteo Pio Colella, age 7, the son of a doctor who works in the House for Relief of Suffering, the hospital in San Giovanni Rotondo founded by Padre Pio. On the night of 20 June 2000, Matteo was admitted to the intensive care unit of the hospital with meningitis. By morning doctors had lost hope for him as nine of the boy´s internal organs had ceased to give signs of life. That night, during a prayer vigil attended by Matteo´s mother and some Capuchin friars of Padre Pio´s monastery, the child's condition improved suddenly. When he awoke from the coma, Matteo said that he had seen an elderly man with a white beard and a long, brown habit, who said to him: "Don´t worry, you will soon be cured." The miracle was approved by the Congregation and Pope John Paul II on 20 December 2001.
