St. Pio of Pietrelcina is humanity at its finest. He has shown us that our love for God and the practice of the Christian virtues is, in fact, the practice of our own humanity as God intended. Through his life in imitation of Christ, he demonstrated that simplicity, patience, humility, and obedience will give us the lasting peace and happiness that has eluded civilization for centuries. So perhaps because St. Pio represented the best of our human qualities, people went back home from the friary in San Giovanni Rotondo with renewed trust and hope. Not a few returned with a profound change in their lives. Let St. Pio touch you through this book. Let him change your life forever!
