Item description for Advent And Christmas Wisdom from Padre Pio: Daily Scripture And Prayers Together With Saint Pio of Pietrelcina's Own Words (Advent And Christmas Wisdom) by Pio & Anthony F. Chiffolo...
Overview The words of Padre Pio, one of the most beloved holy men of the 20th century, lead readers to Christmas with a heightened sense of the sacred. From the first Sunday in Advent to the end of the Christmas season, Scripture passages and prayers are provided for each day.
Saint Pio of Pietrelcina--probably best known as Padre Pio--knew with complete certainty that at all times his place was beside Jesus, whether it be Jesus the suffering servant or Jesus the innocent babe. Providing some pre-Advent counsel, he wrote, " O]ne thing only is necessary, to be close to Jesus...." This was his lifelong quest, and his premier advice to all of his spiritual children.
"Be close to Jesus." It is good counsel for all of us as we experience another Advent. Perhaps in God's presence we are shy and reticent, or nervous and talkative, or fearful and belligerent, or brave and boastful. Does it really matter what we say or feel, or if we say or feel anything? Saint Pio's continuing message to us is that only one thing counts: that we find a way to be with Jesus.
This Advent, let us join Padre Pio as he hastens to the God-Child, heeding the angels and following the star, to experience God's nearness, where anything and everything are possible.
