Pray for the Intercession of Padre Pio

“Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God’s heart.” To Padre Pio, prayer was a sacred, powerful, and healing practice. Today, thousands of people pray for Padre Pio’s intercession in their intentions and travel to the National Centre for Padre Pio to light their own prayer candles.
