Prayer to Saint Pio of Pietrelcina
(from pope John Paul II)
We pray you to teach us to have a humble heart, in order to be included between the little ones of the Gospel, to whom the Father promised to reveal his kingdom's mysteries. Please, ensure that our gaze has enough faith to recognise immediately the same face of Jesus into poor and suffering people. Support us during fighting and trial times and ensure that we can experience the joy of the sacrament of forgiveness, if we fall. Instill the tender devotion to Mary in us, she who is mother of Jesus and our mother. Accompany us in the earthly pilgrimage to our blessed Homeland, that we hope to reach for contemplating the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Oh father Pio, light from God, pray Jesus and the Virgin Mary for us and for the whole suffering humanity.
