St Pio of Pietrelcina

St Pio of Pietrelcina, O.F.M.  (Padre Pio) Novena

Dear God, Thou hast generously blessed Thy servant, St Pio of Pietrelcina, with the gifts of the Spirit. Thou hast marked his body with the five wounds of Christ Crucified, as a powerful witness to the saving Passion and Death of Thy Son. Endowed with the gift of discernment, St Pio labored endlessly in the confessional for the salvation of souls. With reverence and intense devotion in the celebration of Mass, he invited countless men and women to a greater union with Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Through the intercession of St Pio of Pietrelcina, I confidently beseech Thee to grant me the grace of (mention your intentions here). Amen.

Recite three times the Glory be.


St Pio of Pietrelcina was a Capuchin priest, a confessor and stigmatist who lived from 1887 to 1968.
