“Padre Pio was and is a man of hope. Throughout his life, in the midst of the most difficult trials, he always looked to the future with a spirit of optimism, faith, and love.”
 
Canonized on June 16, 2002, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968) was a Capuchin monk and mystic whose life was marked with miracles and wonders, but who said that his only desire was “to be a poor friar who prays.” In this intimate biography, you will see the results of this humble Capuchin's prayers and discover for yourself the Source of his great hope. This updated edition contains five new chapters covering the years between beatification and canonization, St. Pio’s continued work in people’s lives, and the devotion of St. John Paul II to this extraordinary saint of our day.  An intimate, professional biography of this truly unusual and historic saint, a new book by a prize-winning journalist who focuses on the hope that St. Pio gave -- how even in the most difficult trials he held faith and looked to the future with a spirit of optimism -- an optimism we could all use in our personal lives and the world at large! His trials, tribulations, mysterious events.
