So, today, let's thank St. Pio for his wonderful example of offering up trials, big and small, in the hope of uniting our suffering to Christ's. We can all use that reminder.
On a funny closing note...Blondie just came in, "Mom, St. Padre Pio is on EWTN! He was a real live person!". "Yes, sweetie, all the Saints were real live people like you are before they went to heaven....you can become a Saint one day as well!" Stunned silence.
I guess it never occurred to me that they wouldn't know that. Kids are great teachers.
St. Pio, Pray for Us!
