Prophet of the People by Dorothy Gaudiose

Prophet of the People by Dorothy Gaudiose

Padre Pio, a Capuchin priest, from 1918 until his death in 1968, bore the wounds of Christ. Because of his holy life, he was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. Although Padre Pio’s earthly life has ended, devout admirers from the world over continue to stream into the town which has become synonymous with his name. They come seeking blessings, favors, and even miracles, as did countless believers before, while this inspiring stigmatist lived. Pio’s life has been surrounded with accounts of unusual spiritual phenomena and astonishing gifts of knowledge above the natural order, and yet, with peculiar suffering as well. He had throngs of followers and devotees but was not spared the humiliation of detractors and the derision of harsh critics. Miss Gaudiose, drawing from years of on-the-scene observation, offers a devout though detached presentation of the life of this amazing mystic and of the loving power of the Savior beyond the pain.
