Pray, Hope and Don't Worry!

JMJ+D
Today is the feast day of St. Pio of Pietrelcina.

Although he suffered the stigmata, he was a man of joy. He said, "Don't allow any sadness to dwell in your soul, for sadness prevents the Holy Spirit from acting freely." (From Padre Pio Devotions)

May he intercede for us all! He is one of my favorite saints. I hope to visit his grave one day later on in my life.

Me too. My priest is from Monte San Angelo which is close to San Giovani Rotondo where St. Pio was from. He always says that he would bring us there someday, God willing.

Don't forget to pray for us when you visit his grave!
