St. Padre Pio was God’s response to the diabolical silliness of his time. At his time, many Catholics were beginning to compromise their Catholic faith. Many were questioning whether miracles really existed.
St. Padre Pio’s life was filled with astounding miracles! He battled with the Devil. He communicated with his guardian angel. He lived the passion of the Lord Jesus Christ. He reminded us how important it is to meditate on the love of God.
