Happy Feast of St Pio to you and yours

Today marks the feast day of Padre Pio. I wish you a most lovely day celebrating the life of Padre Pio.  May you get every blessing and grace through Pio's intercession.

I am still deep in the throes of writing my  book on Padre Pio, but happy to report that I am writing the last chapter, and hope to spend the winter re-writing and editing it 'til it is worthy of being published.  Of your love, please pray for me.

This photo of me was taken recently in the height of sweltering summer 2018 in the largest gift shop in Fatima, Portugal. Surrounding me is a hat-trip of Franciscan Saints, behind Padre Pio is St Anthony, and in front is St Francis.
