Prayer on back:
Prayer to Saint Pio of Pietrelcina
Beloved Padre Pio, Saint of Pietrelcina, today I add my prayer to those offered to you every day by those who love and venerate you. Because of your friendship with the Lord, He heals those you ask to be healed, and forgives those you forgive.
Through your visible wounds of the Cross which you bore for 50 years, you were chosen in our time to glorify the crucified Jesus. Please help us to bring the Cross back in our midst, for we acknowledge it is the only true sign of salvation. As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet, and side, we not only remember the blood you shed in pain, but also your smile and the invisible halo of sweet smelling flowers that surrounded your presence: the perfume of sanctity.
Saint Pio, in your kindness, please help me with my request: (mention your petition, and make the Sign of the Cross). Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
