The Title says it all. Will make you feel better no matter what you are dealing with, easy reading, you will not want to put it down. Is one of my all time favorites. Truly helps you pray, hope, and not worry!
Padre Pio has changed my perspective on everything. After giving this a read, my faith has become stronger. I've realized my devotion to St. Pio has developed through Diane's words. Planning my trip to San Giovanni Rotondo soon! Viva Padre Pio!!
Can't say enough about this incredible Saint. This book will give you a feeling like you know St Padre Pio personally and you'll miss him when you finish reading it.
For anyone who loves Padre Pio - I bought this book and the second one to give as a gift to my mom who prays to Padre Pio - I did read through a couple chapters of this book and it's so good - really inspiring for those that believe in him.
