What is it like to meet a saint?
Let Pascal Cataneo (the author) introduce you to his dear friend, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, whom he knew from 1940 to 1968. from his own encounters with this beloved Franciscan priest, as well as the testimony of many others who knew him, Cataneo shares a wealth of glimpse into God working concretely in peoples lives through the words and presence of Saint Pio.
The Church officially recognizes saints when the virtues of faith, hope, and love consistentlyand heroicallyshine through a person's words and actions. This holiness of life is usually wrapped up in the small details of day-to-day living. But once in a while God also chooses to work in miraculous ways through his holy ones.
