Padre Pio’s “Secret Weapon Prayer”

The Very many times when I chat with people and share how we feel in regard to having a child with SSA, the answer, especially from priests, is to pray. Pray longer, pray harder is the suggestion. I thought about that advice and believe a third suggestion is in order.

PRAY SMARTER!

When you to pray for your family member and especially for yourself ( we too must grow spiritually) why not pray with “Padre Pio Power”? It’s the smart thing to do to employ a saint to intercede for us, and who better than Saint Pio of Pietrelcina.  When I heard that the prayer below (written by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque) was the one Padre Pio would use when people asked him to pray for them, I needed no further encouragement for choosing this prayer in the same way. Now I have two saints championing my plea. Additionally, Padre Pio has tens of thousands of miracles associated with him, including the healing of a very good friend of Pope John Paul II. I, for one, am willing to give it a try. I After all, as Fr. Benedict Groeschel loved to say “ it can’t hurt!”

show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb,

O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
