|PRAYER TO FATHER PIO FOR HELP
Father Pio, behold I am afflicted in body, mind, or soul (which-ever it
may be). Lest my courage begin to fail and impatience and sadness
oppress me, I beg your kind intercession, to relieve me of this illness if it
be God’s holy will.
You loved the sick and the afflicted. Obtain for me strength and
courage to accept this trial from the loving hand of God with patience
Help me to imitate you in your sufferings from the wounds in your hands
and feet and side. I unite myself with Christ Crucified and my sorrowful
Mother for his honor and salvation of souls, especially my own. May
suffering lead me to a better life and enable me to atone for my sins
and the sins of the world. Amen.
