The Meditation Prayer on Mary Immaculate is one of Padre Pio’s few published writings, penned before he was forbidden by the Church to publish or to engage in correspondence—this for fear a cult would arise around him. Here we encounter a profound spiritual penetration into the mystery of Mary’s unique and sublime role in our salvation. Though brief, it can be read over and over with great benefit since it is –just as the title suggests—both a meditation and a prayer on the meaning of Mary. This booklet also contains a brief sketch of Padre Pio’s life and numerous edifying pictures of this saintly stigmatist.
A little Catholic gem
The short meditation and prayer by Padre Pio is priceless. I’m glad I found it. It is enhanced by a touching biographical sketch.
Beautiful prayer to follow and meditate upon.
And a beautiful narrative of Padre Pio's life and dedication to saving souls through prayer and penance.
