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 in the gospel promised 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 feel the joy of the sacrament of forgiveness.

St. Pio, Teach us tender devotion to Mary, Mother of Christ and our Mother.

 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, you are our friend, consoler of our soul and help of us sinners. You understand us so well for you know what it means to suffer. To you we entrust our wellbeing 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, To you we entrust the request of presenting our souls to the Virgin of Grace to obtain eternal salvation from the Lord;

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)

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You. St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
