Padre Pio's Words Of Hope
Eileen Dunn Bertanzetti
If you've ever wished you could sit down and ask Blessed Padre Pio, the famous stigmatist of the 20th century, some of the deepest questions of the human heart, now you can.
With beautiful illustrations and topics ranging from simple queries about the role of angels to the cry of a soul seeking to understand the meaning of suffering, these meditations use the actual words of this blessed priest to answer your most intimate questions and reveal God's own messages of encouragement, exhortation, inspiration, and blessing.
Padre Pio (1887-1968) was an internationally beloved Franciscan priest. From his home in Italy, he drew thousands of pilgrims who wished to obtain a blessing, experience healing, go to Confession, or be present at Mass celebrated by the blessed friar. He was declared "Blessed," the final step before canonization, in May 1999.
