This is a collection of first-hand accounts of Saint Pio of Pietrelcino who lived in Italy and died in 1968. Have you ever heard of him? I hadn't. What a fascinating man! I highly recommend this book, or any book on him. It'll change your life, and it just might save your soul.

It is more than amazing and hopefully this book will change my life (so far it has, just don't want to fall back to my old ways). I plan on buying this book and rereading.
