The author also weaves in the Saint’s early work with L’Americana, Mary Pyle, his “foreign ambassadress,” and then with the American GI’s who came to visit him during WWII, with San Giovanni Rotondo was liberated from the Germans. Padre Pio developed a special love for Americans and America—to the point that he wished that all Americans would become his spiritual children.
This book demonstrate Padre Pio’s great love for his parents, his amazing sense of humor, his abstemious eating, his uncanny knowledge of people (even before they visited), and his profound supernatural awareness. In sum, Padre Pio and America is an inspiring book that will instill a profound awe in readers because it shows the impact a truly saintly priest can have on all who come into contact with him—and in Padre Pio’s case, even on the whole world!

I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more about Padre Pio. The book seems very well researched and well written - so much so that I got a real sense of "being there" with the descriptions used. I found myself really sad that the book ended - that's how much I enjoyed it. You will too!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
