Item description for Padre Pio: An Intimate Portrait of a Saint through the Eyes of His Friends by Kathleen Stauffer...

Have you ever met a saint? Meet Padre Pio through the stories of those who knew him best. Tender reflections from the monks who lived with St. Pio chronicle his daily life, deep prayer habits, and incredible love for Jesus. The men who worked, worshiped and even laughed side by side with Padre Pio reveal their deep respect and affection for a humble monk so specially acknowledged by God. These touching rememberances from unassuming friars reveal a different and simpler side of Padre Pio, and offer a firsthand account of his life rarely revealed while shedding light on the spirtual mysteries of his stigmata.

Padre Pio   Dec 30, 2007
I wish more people would read and find out about this incredible humble saint. I find him to be most fascinating!!!
Perfect Read & Gift  Nov 7, 2007
I was amazed at what Kathleen Stauffer was able to accomplish with this one slim book. Care and attention are given to every aspect of Padre Pio's life, and in the most engaging ways, through stories by the people who knew him well and loved him. What I like best is that the focus is not always on Saint Pio's stigmata and many miracles, although they are certainly not ignored, but on the tremendous depth of his faith and his passionate love of God. As this wonderful book says, the miracles happened because God is real! I can't recommend it enough! I learned so much. One of the priests who knew him best said that he never saw Padre Pio do anything but pray, suffer, and help people. Stauffer says that he often said to the people that he helped, "Don't worry, lets pray." Words to live by.
Different than all the rest....  Oct 17, 2007
More than your run-of-the mill saint profile. I really loved this book because it made Padre Pio real for me. The author manages to tell a great story AND provide a spiritual boost to the reader. Catholics so often are put on the defensive by those who really don't understand the Scriptural underpinnings of our faith. This book explains saints, Sacramentals, and Scripture in plain language while providing an inspiring, enjoyable read.
Great little book for home (and church) library or gift-giving!  Oct 13, 2007
Small but mighty! Catholic Digest's Kathleen Stauffer has jam-packed this little book with real-life Padre Pio details, shared from personal conversations with friends who obviously knew him well, lending a confident credence and truly 'intimate' touch to the story. In fact, reading this book gave me the feeling of getting to know a good friend. It also evoked feelings of respectful appreciation and gratitude to his humble and sincere friar-friends for so carefully sharing Padre Pio's amazing story from the powerful perspective that "God is not magic. God is real." ~(an important reminder when discussing miracles!) And it's refreshing to have in my library an informative, personal book about Padre Pio that highlights his life story with first-hand insight, authority and credibility while adding a lighter touch. The author takes a 'down to earth' approach, faithfully following his inspirational journey to sainthood, while dishing out enjoyable 'insider info' on "Padre Pio's favorite things", boyhood stories of mischief, his quick wit and endearing sense of humor. Also included: interesting information and commentary on the phenomenon of "stigmata" as well as listings of outside resources such as web sites, --a nice touch and helpful tool for digging up more in-depth info. There are many books written on the life of Saint Pio, but this one is unique in that it doesn't present chapter after volumous chapter of heavy material, --it 'digests' all that and in just under 60 pages, manages to not only tell a good story, but inform, inspire AND make you smile. ~An interesting and welcome addition to my library, and a great gift! The size lends itself to being a perfect Christmas 'stocking stuffer', and I've already bought several.

Outstanding  Oct 2, 2007
I think that this is one of the best written books on our Saints today. Highly recommend this book for all to read.
