Best book I ever read full of hope, devotion and love Gods love

I will highly recommend this book is amazing

This is the MUST HAVE book.

. There are so many books about Padre Pio. THIS ONE is a must-have... it was one of the first written. And, because so, the stories and accounts of his life have not been filtered down, as so often happens over the years with numerous re-tellings.

Holy Man of God, Thank You Padre Pio

This was an excellent book, Examples of many, many miracles, Many insights to the wisdom and knowledge of heaven. Wonderful book.

**An Extraordinary Story About a Saint of Our Time**

Padre Pio was canonized St. Pio of Pietrelcina on June 16, 2002. There are many books written about him, and this is one of the best and most complete. He was a Capuchin friar born in southern Italy in 1887 and died in 1968. He bore the stigmata, the wounds of Christ, for 50 years. He also possessed other unusual qualities, such as bilocation, odor of perfume, the reading of hearts, miraculous cures, remarkable conversions and prophetic insight. Because of his ability to read hearts many people sought to confess their sins to him. Although he heard confessions for 12 to 14 hours a day, it was necessary to register 10 days in advance because so many people desired his spiritual direction.I highly recommend this book and also "Stories of Padre Pio" by Madame Katharina Tangari.

Excellent book; must reading for believer and doubter alike!

I remember hearing mom tell about Padre Pio when I was younger. I have only recently finished the book, and one of the most compelling facts brought to mind is that there are still living persons who have met and benefited from their interaction with this holy man.

Content

If you are looking for specific information about Padre Pio, such as miracle healings attributed to him, this is the book for you. Each chapter covers a different topic. One deals exclusively with the healings, another contains spritual advice he gave to people and another lists bilocations. It doesn't read like a chronological biography with all of these events mixed together. Overall, I found this to be one of the better books I've read on Padre Pio.
