St. Padre Pio’s Incorrupt Body

St. Padre Pio’s Incorrupt Body

Padre Pio, a humble Capuchin priest from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy , was blessed by God in many wonderful and mysterious ways. The most dramatic was the stigmata. Padre Pio bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years!

Among his other gifts were perfume, bilocation, prophecy, conversion, reading of souls, and miraculous cures. People are still being cured through his intercession in ways that cannot be explained by medicine or science.

More important, if less spectacular, are the spiritual healings that take place in all parts of the world! Padre Pio is a powerful intercessor!!

To see him resting so peacefully it’s hard to believe that he died 40 years ago.

A Prayer to Padre Pio

Beloved Padre Pio, today I come to add my prayer to the thousands of prayers offered to you every day by those who love and venerate you in Jesus’ name. They ask for cures and healings, earthly and spiritual blessings, and peace for body and mind. And because of your friendship with the Lord, he heals those you ask to be healed, and forgives those you ask be forgiven in Jesus’ name.

Through your visible wounds of the Crucified Jesus, which you bore for 50 years, you were chosen in our time to glorify the crucified Jesus. Because the Cross has been replaced by other symbols, please help us bring back the veneration of the wounds of Jesus Christ, for we acknowledge His Precious Blood as true a sign of salvation, cleansing and purifcation.

As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet and side, like beloved Jesus Christ, we not only remember the blood He shed as you also shed in pain, along with your smile, and the invisible halo of sweet smelling flowers that surrounded your presence, certainly the Scent of The Lord, symbolic as the perfume of sanctity.

Padre Pio, may the healings of the sick become the testimony that the Lord has invited you to join the holy company of Saints. In your kindness, please help me with my own special request: (mention here your petition, and make the sign of the Cross).

Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

In Memoriam J.S.

The following quotes of Padre Pio tell how he looked after and loved his spiritual family:

‘I love my Spiritual Children as much as my own soul and even more.’

‘Once I take a soul on, I also take on their entire family as my spiritual children.’

‘To my Spiritual Children, my prayers for you will never be lacking.’

‘If one of my spiritual children ever goes astray, I shall leave my flock and seek him out.’

    I humbly and earnestly request you to please pray for my need. I am the eldest, and from a very poor family, I am the breadwinner, and my parents are sickly. I have three younger brothers, of whom the youngest developed glaucoma and is now fully blind. He is dependent on me to provide for his medical expenses, and for his learning Braille. My other two brothers do cultivation in our village, which is very remote, and during the recent floods, all the crops perished. I am the only one in the family who was able to study, and with our extreme poverty, lack of basic needs, I persevered and successfully completed my degree in Christianty and Mass communication. I am the first and only one in my village, and the whole village is honored by my achievement, as we don’t have electricity supply at home, yet I studied with the light from a small bottle lamp.

    Having graduated I worked in a Catholic institution, I was happy in my work. My superior suddenly terminated my employment for no reason, as they had someone else lined up, to replace me. However the person replacing me is from an affluent family. It is sad, that my superiors knowing very well my poverty and my poor parents and blind brothers dependency on my salary, did something wicked and heartless like this. Above all, I am without a job for over two months now, no income, my brothers medical needs have not been provided, he is unable to continue with his Braille, we are without proper food, while my superiors who did this live a care free, secure life with all their needs met. I pleaded and appealed to all those that matter, but none were willing to help me, as they all prefer to be on the side of the powerful person, and not spoil their friendship by trying to take up my cause.
    I plead the mercy and intervention of God to take up my cause, and deliver justice, Now I am compelled to seek justice in a court of law, and I ask you to pray that God may guide and direct my lawyer, and anoint him with the Holy Spirit. That the presence of the Lord will take authority over this case, and that Jesus will release truth over all the falsehoods and hidden lies being cooked up to safeguard those responsible. That the mighty power of God will expose all hidden and shady deals, and that He will bless every tear and pain that I and my poor parents and blind brother suffered and endured in silence, because of inhuman and wicked and heartless superiors,.I pray that God may forgive them and that they repent for their wrongdoings. May the glory and justice of God overrule all wrong and injustice. To God be the glory!! Praise and bless His Holy and Mighty Name. May Mother Mary, St. Joseph and all the saints intercede for me.

    • This is years–three. Reminder: we are not to take Christian fellows to court in the world. Better to be defrauded–we are told by Apostle Paul… Yet we are to settle it–and it SEEMS I MUST TELL that (1) YOU go to THE PERSON-firing-YOU (2) YOU go BACK to the person-firing-YOU WITH ANOTHER TWO or THREE witnesses (3) you REPORT THAT PERSON to the church authorities!!+<3–hope this is not too late as Godly advice FROM THE BIBLE ought TO BE valuable SOMEHOW?

  2. I humbly request prayers for healing. Healing for the illness that keeps me fatigued, makes it hard for me to remember and focus. Healing of the illness that makes it hard for me to do the things needed for daily survival, like working, studying to better my chances at employment and from, at times, even holding a conversation, because I can’t find words in my brain.

    I am desperately in need of healing, and of employment, so that I can support myself and help my mother and son.

    I ask, in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, and all the saints that bless me by their intercession.


    • angela–you sound as if you are suffering from chronic fatigue and immunodeficiency syndrome? first: diet exacerbates. (1) cut out sugar and white stuff-grains also-even milk-but cream/yogurt ok from your diet — contributes to brain fog. focus on non-plant-bean-type proteins and greens, olive oil…plenty of water (2) eggs and butter good (3) cut sauces and prepared foods and seasonings which generally contain sugars OR THINGS THAT ACT LIKE SUGARS+<3–EITHER ADD A PROTEIN TO EVERYTHING…OR JUST EAT FAT ALONE IN AN EMERGENCY…LIKE A SOFT CHEESE 🙂
