St Padre Pio Day 2 - Catholic Action For Faith and Family


St. Padre Pio had much to say about worries, fears and anxieties which take away our peace. In fact, this is his most famous saying:

“Pray, hope and don’t worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.”

More quotes to contemplate: 

"Everything passes, only God remains to the soul if it knows how to love Him well.”

“Be cheerful. Jesus will take care of everything. Let us trust in Jesus and our Heavenly Mother and everything will work out well!"

"How many times have I entrusted to the Blessed Virgin, the painful anxieties of my heart and how many times, she has calmed and consoled me."

Dearest Padre Pio, so many times a day, my mind begins to focus on things that cause me to worry and my peace is lost. The worry and anxieties feel like I am carrying a heavy sack on my back, especially when I concentrate on my ailments, the health concerns of others, the rapidly rising cost of food, housing and gas, as well as the ongoing violence in the world, and even when I have a disagreement with a family member or friend.  Help me to realize that the peace Jesus gives me will remain with me during all trials that I encounter. That His peace is still with me, despite the darkness, for the love of Jesus never leaves me alone. That I have a Savior in heaven, who is stronger than all, and that no one and nothing can snatch me from His hands.

Now, I come to you, my dearest intercessor.  In honor of the Anniversary of your 136th day of birth on May 25th, I ask for a “gift”, a miracle in these my most pressing needs. (Mention your intentions now and especially ask for the needs of Cardinal Burke, as well as his continued good health.) AMEN
