Listen to Padre Pio Pray

What a grace it is to listen to Padre Pio in prayer. Some of us may have heard Mother Theresa and Pope John Paul II speak, but, until now, it generally hasn't been possible to hear the voice of an actual saint.

With audio and visual technology ever evolving, listening to and watching the saints at prayer will someday be routine, but to hear Padre Pio pray the Our Father in Italian nearly 40 years ago comes as a delightful surprise from Heaven.

Someday we will get to read the blog of a 21st-century saint. Padre Pio didn't blog but we are nonetheless blessed with his words of faith.
