PADRE PIO AND THE VIRGIN MARY


Padre Pio cherished a tender love for the Virgin Mary. Once he said about the Rosary: "Always hold the weapon of Mary tight in your hand. It will bring you victory over your enemies". It was through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima that Padre Pio obtained a miracle for himself. He had been ill since May of 1959 and the doctors had discovered a lung tumour, so that his life was in mortal danger. It was not coincidence that it was then, that the pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima was being transported throughout Italy in the Peregrinatio Mariae. On 5th August the statue was brought to San Giovanni Rotondo in a helicopter. Before the image departed, Padre Pio addressed a fervent prayer from his sick-bed to Our Lady and at once he felt a mysterious strength invade his body and he exclaimed: "I'm cured! Our Lady came here because she wanted to cure Padre Pio!".
