This book is a concise introduction to Padre Pio’s life, especially as compared to the example and journey of his spiritual father, St. Francis of Assisi. If St. Francis is said to be the most popular saint of all time, Franciscan Capuchin Padre Pio is perhaps the most popular saint of our times.
Given that he passed only in 1968, it is remarkable to think that such a spiritual “superhero” could exist in our modern age. Though not spared from misfortune, he was spared those things that cloud us from perceiving the world in a truly spiritual way. Perhaps that is why Padre Pio offers us just the message we need to hear.
Amazon customer review by Carriel: "What a wonderful introduction to Padre and his great trust in God. This book really brings together the similarities between St. Frances and the Padre. I have become inspired to not only want to learn more about Padre but to try to live a more trusting life. Please read this book and let it open your heart and mind to God and his love for you."
