Jesus says “knock and it shall be opened for you.” Let us ask the Lord and Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, to hear us.

The Word of God is made flesh and comes to dwell among us. To observe the Word of God means to be fed by the flesh and blood of Jesus, which are the food of eternal life. (Cf Mt 4:4; Jn 6:68).

Some Prayers

For Padre Pio, prayer was not just a good deed but a way of life, lived moment by moment. He said of prayer: “Prayer is the effusion of our heart into God’s… when it is well done, it moves the Divine Heart and makes Him always more inclined to grant our requests. Let us pour out our whole soul to God in prayer. He is captivated by our prayers and comes to our aid“.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus


This prayer was recited every day by Padre Pio for all those who asked for prayers

I. O my Jesus, you have said: “Truly I say to you, ask and it will be given you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.” Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of [insert your intention.]
Our Father…Hail Mary…Glory be to the Father… Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

II. O my Jesus, you have said: “Truly I say to you, if you ask any thing of the Father in my name, He will give it to you.” Behold, in your name, I ask the Father for the grace of [insert your intention.]

Our Father…Hail Mary…Glory be to the Father… Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

III. O my Jesus, you have said: “Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away.” Encouraged by your infallible words I now ask for the grace of [insert your intention.]

Our Father…Hail Mary…Glory be to the Father… Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender mother and ours.

Say the Hail, Holy Queen
St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.

John Paul II Canonization of Padre Pio, June 16, 2002

Teach us, we pray, humility of heart,
so that we may be counted among
the little ones of the Gospel
to whom the Father promised to reveal
the mysteries of His Kingdom.

Help us to pray without ceasing,
certain that God knows what we need
even before we ask Him.

Obtain for us the eyes of faith
that will help us recognize in the poor and suffering,
the very face of Jesus.

Sustain us in the hour of trouble and trial and,
if we fall, let us experience the joy
of the sacrament of forgiveness.

Grant us your tender devotion to Mary,
mother of Jesus and our Mother.
Accompany us on our earthly pilgrimage
toward the blessed Homeland,
where we too,
hope to arrive to contemplate
forever the Glory of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Prayer to the Guardian Angel

Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard,
to rule and guide.

Amen.
