From the publisher’s description:

Referred to as a “surgeon of souls,” Saint Pio of Pietrelcina brought the Good News of Jesus to people near and far, inspiring their individual conversions, but also causing chains of transformations. Crowds flocked to him to have their confessions heard, to be at his Mass, or to simply be in his presence.

Written by Pascal Cataneo—a fellow priest and contemporary of Padre Pio—this collection contains Padre Pio’s encounters with countless people from all walks of life and the personal accounts of their spiritual transformations. From bilocation, to psychic abilities, to health cures, to an untaught multilingualism, to an unexplainable perfume scent, Padre Pio was blessed with many unique gifts that stirred peoples’ consciences, awakened their faith, and changed their lives. Stories and quotes from conversations between Padre Pio and his visitors capture these miraculous episodes.

Whether you are a fan of Padre Pio, enjoy miracle stories, want to encounter the Franciscan tradition, or are interested in supernatural phenomena, you will be intrigued by this book. In this volume, you will find rare glimpses of God working concretely in the lives of ordinary people through the words and presence of Saint Pio.

You will also be offered a window into the biographical elements of Padre Pio’s life, including the aura of mystery surrounding the stigmata on his hands and feet. But this book extends beyond biographical facts into Cataneo’s inclusion of his personal experiences with Padre Pio, offering you a more intimate reading experience. Such a unique perspective reveals the many sides of this Capuchin friar’s personality—his humility, his directness, and his humor. By connecting the ordinary with the supernatural, you are shown that the miraculous is possible in this world . . . and in your life.

The Logos Bible Software edition of Padre Pio: Glimpse into the Miraculous will give you insight into the well-known and influential saint. The biographical information contained in this resource will provide you with great spiritual and devotional content for your digital library.

  • I can attest to the truth about Padre Pio. On September 22 2008, I had the privilege of seeing Padre Pio’s incorruptible body after 40 years. He appears as if he had just laid down to go to sleep. His fingernails have a bluish tint but there are no other visible signs of corruption. The stigmata which he carried for 50 years is no longer visible. At San Giovanni Rotondo, I went to the basement to watch a video with 2 parts. The first was recorded around September 23, 1968, which was the burial of Padre Pio. There were 3 or 4 carabinirie with their machine guns, there was the welder who sealed Padre Pio into a lined casket and the clergy looking on to make sure everything was done properly. The 2nd portion of the video was from March 2008, when the Church exhumed the body of Padre Pio to see if he was incorruptable. There were 3 or 4 carabinirie with their machine guns, there was the welder who sealed Padre Pio into a lined casket and the clergy looking on to make sure everything was done properly.
    The book Padre Pio: Glimpse into the Miraculous does a good job explaining the life of Padre Pio. It is a worthwhile read.
    If you need a friend call on Saint Padre Pio and he may be able to provide inspiration to resolve your issues.
