Saint Padre Pio

Almighty and eternal God, who, by a singular grace, allowed the priest Saint Pio to participate in the cross of your Son, and by means of his ministry renewed the wonders of your mercy, grant, through his intercession, that, constantly united to the passion of Christ, we may happily arrive at the glory of the resurrection. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen
