Prayer to St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

September 23, 2022

Dear God, You have hast generously blessed
Your servant, St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
with the gifts of the Spirit.
You have marked his body
with the five wounds of Christ Crucified,
as a powerful witness to the saving Passion
and Death of Your Son.
Endowed with the gift of discernment,
St. Pio labored endlessly in the confessional
for the salvation of souls.
With reverence and intense devotion
in the celebration of Mass,
he invited countless men and women
to a greater union with Jesus Christ
in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Through the intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
I confidently ask You to grant my intentions.
