About this product
- DescriptionMy real mission will begin after my death. These words of Padre Pio (1887-1968) proved prophetic in the years after his death. Today, he is one of the most beloved of Catholic saints. Born in 1887 in rural Italy, young Francesco Forgione was named after the country s patron saint, Francis of Assisi. In his desire to suffer for souls and to be more like Christ, the boy who would become kwn as Pio of Pietrelcina was to bear the stigmata on his body, like Francis of Assisi. Padre Pio was kwn for the mystical intensity of his prayer; indeed, this ability to make contact with the powerful presence of God through prayer enabled him to bless and pray with those in most need, wherever they were in the world. Padre Pio: A Personal Portrait is a classic introduction to one of the most intriguing saints of the twentieth century written five years after the saint s death by someone who worked alongside the Capuchin priest and knew him well. Now in print in English for the first time in more than forty years, this book will bring Padre Pio s words and works to a new audience eager to learn of his mysticism and miracles.
- Author BiographyFr. Francesco Napolitano knew and worked with Padre Pio, and so provides an intimate look at one of the most beloved of Capuchin saints. This book was written just five years after the saint s death, published in Italian in 1978, and now brought back into print forty years later.
