Overview

The many gifts Padre Pio had such as the stigmata, bilocation, miraculous scents, prophecy, reading hearts, healing, interpreting languages and many other charisms, rank him among the most extraordinary Saints in the two-thousand year history of the Church. Padre Pio�The Wonder Worker not only examines these gifts close up and from different perspectives, but is capable of challenging the faithless, of exciting interest among the wavering and of inspiring the faithful to strive for holiness.

Though the book records many authenticated wonders, the book's main virtue consists in recounting the life and heroic virtues of this modern day Saint who shows that the way to personal holiness is very much with us in our day. The first seven chapters are a biographical sketch, followed by over thirty chapters dealing with the many inspiring facts pertaining to his life and charisms. Also included are chapters on the Beatification ceremony in Rome and the Pope's homilies.

These short interesting chapters are written by a host of writers and devotees of the Padre such as Fr. John Schug, OFM Cap, Fr. Stefano Manelli, F.I., Mary Ann Budnik, Padre Alberto, Cardinal Ursi, Fr. Bernardino of Siena, Fr. Andre Apostoli and many others. Illustrated with dozens of photos.
