This little book, Listening to God with Padre Pio compiled by Eileen Dunn Bertanzetti, includes 100 of St. Padre Pio's lesser known quotes. Each is followed by a scripture passage related to the quote. Many of his sayings focus on suffering because of his feelings for everyone. "...he felt everyone's pain, whether moral, physical, or mental." (pages 9 & 10)
I found this treasure of a book to be quite comforting at times, the quotes coming at the exact time I needed to read them. Each time I picked it up, God spoke to whatever I needed at that moment.
This is a book for people of all ages. It can be read at any time & for any length of time. Read from beginning to end, pick a page or two when you have a spare moment, read one quote per day for deeper reflection...the possibilities are endless. I even re-read some of the quotes & got something totally different the second time.
Whether you know a lot about St. Padre Pio or only a little, I'm sure you'll find comfort, love, & understanding in his words.
This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company. I have received no monetary compensation for this review...only a copy of the book for my honest opinion. Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Listening to God with Padre Pio . They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church, a Catholic Bible, & much more!
