Novena to St. Pio of Pietrelcina

Novena to St. Pio
of Pietrelcina

This novena to St. Pio was composed right here at the National Centre for Padre Pio.


St. Pio, teach us to pray with Humility so that we may be
among the humble to whom the Father promised in the gospel to
reveal the mysteries of His Kingdom.

 St. Pio, teach us to pray with Faith that will help us to
recognize the face of Jesus Himself in the poor and suffering.
Support us in our hour of troubles and trials, and should we
fall, let us know the joy of the sacrament of forgiveness.

 St. Pio, teach us tender devotion to Mary, Mother of Christ and
our Mother.  To you we entrust the request of presenting our souls to
the Virgin of Grace to obtain eternal salvation from the Lord.

 St. Pio, you are our friend, consoler of our souls, and
help of us sinners. You understand us so well, for you know what
it means to suffer. To you we entrust our well-being and that of
our loved ones.

 St. Pio, to you we entrust our spirit that we may endure the
pains we carry in our heart.

 St. Pio, accompany us on our earthly pilgrimage towards the
blessed Homeland, where we, too, hope to arrive to contemplate
eternally the Glory of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 O glorious St Pio, to you we entrust our plea of intercession to obtain
from the Divine Goodness the graces which we so ardently
desire. Welcome us under your protection, defend us from all
evil, and above all, intercede for us before the Most High, Jesus
Christ, so that through the forgiveness of sins we may persevere
in doing good.  Amen.

 O God, You gave St. Pio the great privilege of participating
in a unique way in the passion of Your Son. Grant me,
through his intercession the grace of….[silently mention your
petition]….. which I ardently desire; and above all, grant me
the grace to live in conformity with the death of Jesus, to
arrive at the glory of the resurrection.

Glory be to the Father…… (three times)

Hail Holy Queen……

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You.

St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
