Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry: True Stories of Padre Pio, Book II, written by Diane Allen and published by Padre Pio Press, contains 40 chapters and 480 pages. The author continued to research and study the life and spirituality of Padre Pio for her second book on the saint who has often been referred to as "the greatest mystic of the 20th Century."
Included in the book are a number of interviews the author conducted with those who met Padre Pio personally and had a testimony to share.
One of the personal testimonies in Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry Book II, is the story of the cloistered Carmelite nun, Sister Pia of Jesus Crucified, who found her vocation to religious life on her first visit to San Giovanni Rotondo and made her confession to Padre Pio on many occasions. The testimony of Alex Quinn, popular songwriter and recording artist of Belfast, Northern Ireland is also featured. Alex tells of the miracle his family received through the intercession of Padre Pio.
Additional chapters: Padre Pio - An Extraordinary Confessor, Padre Pio's Love for the Holy Angels, The Clergy Remembers Padre Pio, Padre Pio's Gift of Bilocation, Padre Pio's Prophetic Spirit, More Stories from the War Years, Padre Pio's Healing Touch, Padre Pio and the Children, Padre Pio's Seraphic Father: St. Francis of Assisi and much more. Padre Pio's prayers are also included.
I wish to thank the Lord for having given us dear Padre Pio, for having given him to our generation in this very tormented century. In his love for God and for his brothers and sisters, he is a sign of great hope.
- Pope John Paul II

Can hardly tell you how much I love this book. It has brought my family untold graces. I lived in Rome during the canonization of Padre Pio and it meant nothing to me. This year my son was in need of big help and I felt called to reach out to Padre Pio for some reason. On the night of Sept. 22 I had a mystical vision followed by a complete change for my son on Sept. 23. I found out that week that 9/23 is P. Pio's St. Day.
I bought this book and the first one as a gift for someone else so I haven't read them but I did browse through the first and I'm hoping to borrow them sometime.
