Summary

“Padre Pio was and is a man of hope. Throughout his life, in the midst of the most difficult trials, he always looked to the future with a spirit of optimism, faith, and love.” 

Canonized on June 16, 2002, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968) was a Capuchin monk and mystic whose life was marked with miracles and wonders, but who said that his only desire was “to be a poor friar who prays.” In this intimate biography, you will see the results of this humble Capuchin's prayers and discover for yourself the source of his great hope. This updated edition contains five new chapters covering the years between beatification and canonization, St. Pio’s continued work in people’s lives, and the devotion of St. John Paul II to this extraordinary saint of our day.

Faith in God waning? This book is your 999 call.

Despite 10hrs+ of listening time, I’ve listened to the book several times. A testament to honest and non-judgmental style of Renzo Allegri’s writing and immersive narration by Douglas James. The biography of St Padre Pio brings to life Jesus words that we can do more than He did while He was physically here on earth and this includes reliving His Passion, suffering, perseverance, miracles and loving relationship with God the father. This is a story or rather, a testimony of faith, love, hope and the impossible - a lot of the impossible and that we, even in the modern age, are still capable of such faith, hope, love and the impossible through a loving relationship with God Almighty.

Great Book about great man.

Great Book about great man who all his life, every day kept helping other People, had to fight with the devil, church misunderstanding and with his illnesses. One thing - some titles are different in audiobook and in app chapter list.

beautiful story about a beautiful saint!

I wish I had learned about this saint sooner! Such an amazing man! I was 21 when he became a saint, but didn't know about him.
