St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina Feast Day..........September 23

"I want to be only a poor Friar who prays... Pray, hope and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer... Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God's heart. You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips but with your heart. In fact on certain occasions you should speak to Him only with your heart..."
Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

Thank you for sharing the two beautiful holy cards of St. Padre Pio. He is one of my favorite Saints. May each of us learn to offer up our sufferings for the conversion of sinners and the holy souls in Purgatory as Padre Pio did through out his Blessed life! St. Padre Pio pray for us, so that we may one day enter into that blessed Kingdom prepared for all who are faithful to the Joy and King of Heaven, Jesus!! A Blessed Day to all! John K.

Thank you Mickie for posting this.
Today, lets all pray and ask Saint Padre Pio to adopt us all as his spiritual children.

One is definitely older. It labels him "Servo Di Dio" or "Servant of God" instead of Saint.

In the other you can see the gloves he wore to cover his stigmata.

These are two pictures that I have not yet seen of St. Padre Pio. He is one of my favorite saints. His picture is beside my bed. Thank you for sharing these.
