Feast of Padre Pio
Happy Feast of Padre Pio! Padre Pio was a a very holy man who truly embodied Christ in the spirit and flesh. He was a man who always put his relationship with God first. He is known to hear confessions day and night out of disdain for sin and love for his brothers and sisters in Christ. He was a mystic who was filled with the gift of wisdom. Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite quotes from Padre Pio.
"The person who meditates and turns his mind to God, who is the mirror of his soul, seeks to know his faults, tries to correct them, moderates his impulses, and puts his conscience in order."
“How unbearable is pain when suffered far from the Cross, but how sweet and bearable it becomes when it is offered close to the Cross of Jesus!”
“True and substantial devotion consists in serving God without experiencing any sensible consolation. This means serving and loving God for His own sake.”
Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, pray for us!
