O Lord, we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in Your divine mercy, and the courage to accept the crosses and sufferings which bring immense goodness to our souls and that of Your Church.
Help us to love You with a pure and contrite heart, and to humble ourselves beneath Your cross, as we climb the mountain of holiness, carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory.
May we receive You with great faith and love in Holy Communion, and allow You to act in us as You desire for Your greater glory.
O Jesus, most adorable Heart and eternal fountain of Divine Love, may our prayer find favour before the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father. Amen.
St. Pio of Pietrelcina, pray for us!
“O Lord, we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in Your divine mercy,”
…Why is it necessary to ask for it?
St Pio always celebrated the Tridentine Rite Mass.
“..San Giovanni Rotondo is now totally Novus Ordo [against everything that Padre Pio stood for]. Saint Padre Pio is a hero of the restoration of true Catholicism. He wanted nothing to do with the post-Conciliar liturgical revolution and said the Tridentine Mass until the last day of his life. ..”
“..John McCaffery, the author of The Friar of San Giovanni: Tales of Padre Pio, was a close friend of Padre Pio.
“I am only a poor monk who prays,” Padre Pio used to say to John, and the sight of vast throngs milling about outside his monastery, truly consternated and perplexed him, so great was his humility.
“Oh Padre ” said John “I know that thousands do come. But after you die, pilgrims coming here will be in the millions!”
Apparently, Padre Pio looked at him with a strange expression. “John,” he said slowly, emphasizing every word, “Let them come! I will not be here!”
