O glorious St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
the saint of this new millennium,
you are our friend,
consoler of our soul and help of us sinners.
You understand us so well
for you know what it means to suffer.
To you we entrust our well-being
and that of our loved ones;
To you we entrust our spirit
that we may be able to endure the pains
we carry in our heart;
To you we entrust the request
of presenting our souls to the Virgin of Grace
to obtain eternal salvation from the Lord;
To you we entrust our plea of intercession
to obtain from the Divine Goodness the grace…
which we so ardently desire.
Welcome us under your protection,
defend us from the snares of evil and
above all intercede for us before the Most High
so that through the forgiveness of sins
we may persevere in doing good.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
3 Glory be to the Father…
Stay with me, Lord
