Reviews - What do customers think about Saint Pio of Pietrelcina: Rich in Love (Encounter the Saints Series, 13)?
Didn't tell enough Nov 21, 2007
I am 10 years old and I read this book in one day. I don't think it told the whole story of this Saint. Many interesting things were left out. If you really want to learn about Padre Pio I would suggest a different book.
It is an interesting book that IS exciting to read but it leaves out really important things. The one new thing that I did learn was that there was only one year of his life that he wasn't sick. There were a number of times in this book where Padre Pio almost died.
The way Padre Pio prayed all the time when he was a kid inspires me. He is definetely a Saint to read about!
Beautiful book! Jun 30, 2007
The "revisionist" pictures the woman mentions above do not take away from the simple beauty of this faith inspiring account of Saint Pio's life. Don't miss it!
Where are the head coverings? Jan 20, 2006
Anyone who has seen the real life footage of Padre Pio knows that the women and girls who went to his Mass (the Tridentine Mass) all wore head coverings. From first glance you can see some revisionist history in the picture on the cover since every woman is lacking a head covering. Find an adult book with accurate pictures from a time when people still practiced the true faith and dressed modestly and read that to your children. Padre Pio himself would not have allowed a women into confession or Mass with out a head covering, or a skirt (no pants) AT LEAST eight inches below the knees. Would you pass Padre Pio's test?
