In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the

 Holy Spirit. Amen

Dear God, You generously blessed Your servant,

St. Padre Pio with the gifts of the Spirit.

You 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 laboured

 endlessly in the confessional for the salvation of souls.

With reverence and intense devotion in the celebration

 of Mass, he invite countless men and women to a

greater union with Jesus Christ

in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.


Through the intercession of St. Padre Pio

I confidently beseech You to grant me the grace of

(Here state your petition).



Oh, my Jesus, give me Your strength when my weak nature rebels

 against the distress and suffering of this life of exile, and

enable me to accept everything with serenity and peace.


With my whole strength I cling to Your merits, Your sufferings,

Your expiation, and Your tears, so that I may be able to

cooperate with You in the work of salvation.


Give me strength to fly from sin, the only cause of Your agony,

Your sweat of blood, and Your death. Destroy in me all that

 displeases You and fill my heart with the fire of Your holy love

 and all Your sufferings.


Clasp me tenderly, firmly, close to You that I may never leave

You alone in Your cruel Passion. I ask only for a place of rest in

Your Heart. Amen.


Glory be to the Father… (three times). Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the

 Holy Spirit. Amen
