About this Item

xii, 380 p.; 104 halftone illus., some showing stigmata in hands; 22 cm. Carries Imprimatur. Inscribed on ffep: Fr. Carty `Chapter II. Diabolical attacks. Many times, entering his modest little cell, Pio found everything upside down, his cot, coverings, books, and ink splattered over the walls. These strange spirits appeared to him under the most diverse forms, often in the habit of monks. One evening he saw that his bed was surrounded by fearful monsters who received him with these words: "Behold, the Saint retires." "Yes, with your contempt," answered Pio. Then they grasped him, shook him and threw him on the floor and against the walls as they had often done to the Cure of Ars St. John Vianney. All these persecutions, instead of weakening his faith, increased it. Physical vigor diminished in him, but every day his spiritual force was all the more increasing. To no one, outside his confessor, did he say anything about these visitations. One night he saw enter his cell a monk under the form and aspect of Padre Agostino, his old confessor. The feigned monk counseled him and exhorted him to give up his life of asceticism and privations affirming that God could not approve of his way of living. Padre Pio, stupefied that Padre Agostino should speak in this manner, ordered him to cry out with him, "Viva Gesu" (Long Live Jesus). The strange personage disappeared immediately, leaving in the room a strange odor of stinking sulphur.' (p. 8) Good orig. red cloth in torn and taped orange dj. Bookseller Inventory # 020809
