Things to learn about this holy friar:
- Mystical vision and calling to be an Alter Christus
- Life-long combat with the demonic spirits
- Profound physical suffering especially during the Canon of the Mass
- His loyalty to the traditions of the Church and the Mass of all times
- His pious admonitions to his spiritual children
"Later, as an aged Capuchin friar, the mere thought of the liturgical reform, which would take effect in 1969, was sufficient to raise in him a holy horror. Throughout his life the holy friar had been obedient even unto martyrdom, but at this time the only request he dared to put forth to the authorities of the Church was to be exempted from the novelties of the impending liturgical reform."
For the first time published in English read the startling testimony and eyewitness accounts of close friends and spiritual sons of Padre Pio as they reveal his thoughts on the sanctity of the Mass, the changes occurring in the Church during his lifetime, and the chilling effects they would have on the future. Look behind the cloister wall and discover a side of Padre Pio you've never seen before.
