Light Your Virtual Candle
We invite you to participate in faithful prayer by lighting a virtual prayer candle online. Your prayers will be added to our special prayer basket that will be placed near the main altar during the Mass in honor of Padre Pio celebrated on September 22, 2018, at the St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, at 7:00 P.M., to commemorate Padre Pio on the 50th Anniversary of his entrance into eternal life.
Contributions made will help the Saint Pio Foundation to cover the cost of the tour of the relics, and to fulfill its mission by “bringing relief from suffering to those in need”, in in the name of Saint Pio!
Prayer to Padre Pio
Dear God, You generously blessed Your servant, St. Pio of Pietrelcina, with the gifts of the Spirit. You marked his body with the five wounds of Christ Crucified, as a powerful witness to the saving Passion and Death of Your Son.
Endowed with the gift of discernment, Saint Pio labored endlessly in the confessional for the salvation of souls. With reverence and intense devotion in the celebration of Mass, he invited countless men and women to a greater union with Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
Through the intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, I confidently beseech You to grant me the grace for myself and for my family.
Glory be to the Father. Amen
