      When I was a naval officer stationed in Naples, Italy in the late 1980 s, my fiance and I once took a road trip eastward, across the boot of Italy, just to see what was on the other side Our destination was the odd shaped spur of the boot that sticks out into the Adriatic Sea and an ancient town called Manfredonia On our way there,we saw a huge billboard with a picture of a gray haired priest, with his hands wrapped in bandages The billboard said something in Italian roughly translated, See San [...]

      Fascinating biography of the noted mystic and stigmatist Makes me realize how utterly inadequate I am as a Christian, but how merciful God is to frail people Interesting that this biography was written by a Lutheran minister, which actually, to me, gives greater creedance to some pretty astounding claims of the supernatural.

    3. Katie on said:

      Although the subject was fascinating and inspirational, it was a dense read because the narrative seemed to jump around It was well researched, however.

      An excellent biography of a fascinating modern day saint A very dear friend raised my level of awareness regarding this incredible man with her own personal testimony prompting me to buy this book Ruffin manages to combine a balanced mix of history, biography and spiritual development to present a very clear image of Padre Pio a very down to earth yet quite extraordinary human being Ruffin is careful to cite sources and back them up wherever possible, but he includes the miraculous even when sup [...]

      A good book about an amazing man Padre Pio was a Capuchin monk that died in the 60 s He bore the stigmata, the wounds of Christ, and was a mystic He could tell if a person was giving a complete confession and would send people away if they neglected to tell all of their sins He was a very holy man and many miracles are attributed to his intercession He became a saint in 2002, but many considered him to be a saint in his lifetime.

    6. Michael on said:

      Great biography of St Padre Pio Does a good job of telling all of the main stories associated with the saint while also distinguishing very clearly which ones had pretty indisputable evidence and which did not Also does a good job of describing how the saint s life changed over the course of the years as he grew in popularity but struggled with times when the church tried to suppress the fervor about him.

      This book was quite challenging for me to get into at the start It is very dense Once capitvated however, it quickly became one I looked forward to reading further This story is remarkable and interesting particularly because it is written by a non Catholic The pictures in the center of the book lend nicely to the remarkable events that happened to this amazing figure Great read.

      Decided to read this biography after I saw the author, a lutheran pastor, being interviewed on the Catholic tv network EWTN.It reads to me like an objective and honest biography The author has done much research to try and get all the facts about Padre Pio The photos add real authenticity to his account

      I read this book because I had some interest in the life of Padre Pio.I did enjoy reading about his life, but at times found myself skimming through some of the sections I found it at times to be repetitive I would say if you have any interest in the man, then this is a book for you.

      Out of the three books that I have read about Padre Pio, this is the best one It goes into much detail and includes some of his religious philosophy.

    11. Patrick\ on said:

      I repeat, still waiting for the right biography This one is good, not great, and an essential read for approaching Pio.

      It is a good book on a simple person, who then became a monk was given a gift and used his gift for others, placing others before himself

      The life of this reclusive but affiable monk has changed the world in my different ways The initial family tree was a bit long, but the biography of his mission, life and works is remarkable

    14. Meg on said:

      This book took me a long time to read there were other books I was reading around this one But when I wanted a comfort book before sleep, I always chose this one I love Padre Pio He was an amazing human in many ways through all his suffering, and Ruffin leaves no stone unturned Many times when Ruffin couldn t confirm information, he stated that fact Straightforward truth I like that This is an excellent, well researched biography of a humble man just trying to save souls, but there is so much t [...]

      an informative, interesting history about the life of Padre Piohis life was much than just being a priest with stigmatas His never ending faith and dedication to Jesus Christ and how he brought so many others to the Mother Church, or back to the Church, is very inspiring.

    16. Trisha on said:

      This book is for someone who loves this Saint and wants to know every single detail of his life It took me about nine nine months to read because I did so in bits and pieces It was very heavy duty and not light reading But I really loved all the information contained.
