This rare glimpse into the heart and soul of Padre Pio reveals the profound spirituality and humanity of the beloved Capuchin friar canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Beyond the extraordinary events that accompanied Padre Pio's life--such as receiving the stigmata--these intimate letters attest to his personal struggles, concerns, temptations, and fears. The book consists of two parts, each with an introduction by a member of the Capuchins.
The letters are gathered and presented by Florio Alessandro Tessari, O.F.M. Cap., a collaborator with the postulator for Padre Pio's canonization cause, and member of Padre Pio's order.
