Reviews - What do customers think about Praying the Psalms With St. Padre Pio?
A Padre Pio Psalter Apr 28, 2008
Padre Pio,(now Saint Padre Pio) has long been a reference point for spiritual guidance, direction, and thought. Numerous books have been written about him recounting his life, his amazing spiritual gifts and powerful prayer intercession (both while he lived and since he passed on into eternity and into God's Kingdom). And his own writings (letters) have also been published, not all are easily accessible however.
Eileen Dunn Bertanzetti has obviously been a student of and a devotee of the saintly life of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina and has authored and assembled colections of his words and thoughts in several volumes of her writing. I had obtained a copy of her book: "Padre Pio's Words Of Hope" in which she arranged a series of 150 meditations each which included a scripture passage or verse, followed by a thought in Padre Pio's own words, and ending in a prayer. When i noticed that there were exactly "150" meditations included, it was obvious by that more than symbolic number that the book brought to mind imagery of the Psalter, the Book Of Psalms. So i was not at all surprised, yet happy, to discover that Eileen has followed that book with this one: "Praying The Psalms With Padre Pio" where she makes a pilgrimage psalm by psalm through all 150 by including a key verse from each, followed by Padre Pio's own words and thoughts centered on the thought of that psalm and verse, and then ending in a prayer -- again 150 meditations of spiritual thought and guidance of Padre pio psalm by psalm . . .
Through the many centuries and centuries, the Psalms have always been integral in the life of prayer: both ecclesial as well as private prayer . . . the psalms spring from and speak to the very core needs and feelings and common (even if individual and personal) experience of every person. At one time or another in our lives we share the same hurts, confusions, joys and gratefulness of the psalmists . . . as did Padre Pio himself . . . and to share the wisdom of the scriptures and of one who lived the scriptures so eloquently (Saint Padre Pio), as we pray our own union with the procession of the saints can be most spiritually enlightening. We find that in truth: "there is nothing new under the sun", what we experience now, others have before us; both long before us as well as more recently before us. And that gives us not only a sense of direction but also of hope . . .and peace.
Eileen Dunn Bertanzetti has provided a great spiritual treasure for us in her books on Padre Pio . . . and this volume is a true gem from that mine.
