“His heart is pure, full of love for God, Mama Mary, the Church. Maybe that's why it never decomposed.” Fr Gonda
Padre Pio's intercession
People generally ask Padre Pio's prayers for protection or healing graces, yet any kind of petition for grace should be laid before the Padre – for oneself or for a relative.
"Mary has recommended the Rosary at Lourdes and Fatima because of its exceptional value for us and our times." (Saint Padre Pio).
If it's not already part of your life we invite you to pray with the heart one Rosary (5 decades) or more per day or at least one decade of the Rosary per day (i.e: one Our Father and ten Hail Mary, while meditating on a mystery of the rosary). For help how to meditate the mysteries please click on this link HERE, or HERE (audio meditations).
To pray with us, find our audio decades on those links:

Who are the Franciscans Friars of the Renewal?
This online retreat is lead by the Franciscans Friars of the Renewal from Limerick.
Learn more about them, through their website.
And visit their Facebook page “Limerick Franciscans”.
The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal were founded in 1987, in the Archdiocese of New York, when eight American Capuchins desired a form of Franciscan life dedicated specifically to service of the poor and evangelization. Currently, there are about 100 perpetually professed members of the institute serving in 10 dioceses and archdioceses, in six countries, committed to the mission of serving the poor and most vulnerable, and passionately preaching the Gospel in the New Evangelization. The Holy See describes the Institute's charism: “After the manner of St. Francis of Assisi, the friars seek to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, as a prophetic witness that life is a pilgrimage to the Father, of faith, hope, and love of God and neighbour, made possible by the Holy Spirit. They participate in Christ's renewal of all things through their prayer, fraternal life, service of the poor, and evangelization, as a complement to the work of those whose mission is to serve parochially.”
Prayer from the community
Prayer of Pope John Paul II to St. Padre Pio
Teach us, we pray, humility of heart, so that we may be counted among the little ones of the Gospel to whom the Father promised to reveal the mysteries of His Kingdom. Help us to pray without ceasing, certain that God knows what we need even before we ask Him. Obtain for us the eyes of faith that will help us recognize in the poor and suffering, the very face of Jesus. Sustain us in the hour of trouble and trial and, if we fall, let us experience the joy of the sacrament of forgiveness (Confession). Grant us your tender devotion to Mary, mother of Jesus and our Mother. Accompany us on our earthly pilgrimage toward the blessed Homeland, where we too, hope to arrive to contemplate forever the Glory of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen
