Be inspired by the life and spirituality of one of the great saints of modern times, St. Pio of Pietrelcina. Although he possessed a startling number of supernatural gifts, including the stigmata or the wounds of Christ, Padre Pio was a humble priest who taught and practiced obedience, trust, and charity. Each of the fifteen meditations in Praying with Padre Pio relates biographical details about the saint along with selections from his writings or letters. Questions for personal reflection or group discussion and suggestions for prayer and action are featured in each of the meditations. Among the topics covered are prayer, the Eucharist, suffering, trust, holiness, and humility. This book is a wonderful introduction to the spirituality of Padre Pio as well as a way to grow closer to the Lord

Theme: "The holy gift of prayer is placed in the right hand of the Savior," said Padre Pio. "And in the measure in which you will be empty of yourself . . . and will keep rooting yourself in holy humility, the Lord will continue to communicate himself to your heart."1
Opening Prayer: Lord, keep my heart and soul always communicating with you, even when my mind and body must focus on my duties. Amen.
About Pio Padre Pio continually communicated with God. His prayer included daily Mass, the rosary, meditation on the passion of Christ, and contemplation, during which he silently adored God. "[Prayer is the] true ladder which unites the earth to the heavens," said Pio. "We will discover that humility, contrition, and prayer make the distance between mankind and God disappear and act in such a way that God descends to mankind and mankind ascends to God, so that they end up understanding, loving, and possessing one another."2
Padre Pio's life of prayer began in early childhood. As a child, he prayed whenever he could, whether kneeling at home on the stone floor, at church before the tabernacle, or with his family during their daily rosary. As Pio grew closer to God, he looked for opportunities to pray more and more. In the middle of trials and suffering of any kind, Pio found his comfort in prayer.
A close friend of Padre Pio's, Fr. Agostino Daniele of San Marco in Lamis, wrote in his diary in February 1944, twentyfour years before Pio's death, "The thought of God is habitual in him. He lives his interior life like the saints did. Even when he talks with [us], we are aware of the fact that his spirit is lifted towards God."
