Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

Peace! First of all, it is Saint Pio, not Saint Padre Pio. Just a semantic preference of mine.
But he is a great saint, and I am proud to be his brother, but ask his assistance. He had the external marks of the crucified Jesus not to make him better but to witness to the world of God's power and the reality of the love shown on the cross. That's not always easy to believe, which is why we are given men and women who are God's mercy writ large. Saint Pio, pray for us!
