    Many thanks for leading my thoughts back to the wonder of San Pio's Rotondo of San Giovanni (I'm struggling to remember the date-- ). It was truly awesome, and I pray your post will encourage readers to the great joy of pilgrimage where-ever they can afford--local retreat houses, monasteries, convents, their Diocese Cathedral, nearby parishes named for their patron or other "special" saints, and so many other wonderful options.
    I'm imaging San Pio, weakened in his last days, asking someone to hand him his "weapon," the Rosary, which I think was never very far from him. I wonder if, when he was healthier, did he challenged visitors or people coming to him for confession to "draw their weapon?" Has anyone heard such a story?

    I just revisited this site and was inspired anew. Sadly it isn't very clear whether the facility hosts retreats and other pilgrimage-type overnight and longer visits. I wish the Church would focus more on teaching its religious to interact more with the public in devotional activity, and to greatly expand activity in human services, especially retreats, Saint's Feast celebrations, concerts, speakers, counselling, housing support, etc.
    Here's a bit more on Spiritual Children of Saint Pio:

    I have loved Padre Pio ever since I started looking into Catholicism a little over two years ago. When I was going through RCIA, I was having a lot of trouble because I was not good at or into theology. I missed the class a lot to do less important things. One night, I had a dream about Padre Pio where he told me to stop skipping RCIA. I stopped and finished the program. A view months ago, I left the church for eastern Orthodoxy. I tried to forget about padre Pio, but I couldn't stop thinking about him and my Catholic faith, which he so faithfully represented. After four months of being away, I am coming back now and am going to go to confession on Sunday.

    We also hold you in our prayers, especially that you consider seeking the wonderful harmony of a close spiritual director. I admit the search can seem almost as hard work as job hunting--but consider that it can lead you to interesting new people with fascinating ideas and experience.
    We were blessed to visit the cell of Padre Pio and the miraculous hospital campus and monastery he helped to creat at San Giovanni Rotundo.

    I rarely share this with anyone, but once in deep meditative prayer late at night I was praying to Padre Pio and thought I heard a voice; I jumped up and the hairs on my neck stood sounded like "try harder" I suppose in my "works" which is always in need of improvement. I slept with the lights on the rest of the night. It would be easy to say I was drifting into a dream, but I was quite awake.....

    I have a 3rd class relic, a prayer cloth with his picture, touched to him.

    There was a wonderful documentary on EWTN about Padre Pio. I learned so much about him. A Saint in the midst of the turbulant 60's as God always promises. Once confronted by an atheist who told Padre Pio "I don't beleive in Hell"...Padre Pio looked at him and said "you'll beleive it when you get there". Sweet Jesus Mercy! Save us from the fires of Hell...Amen.

    St. Padre Pio has been one of my favorite saints since before he was canonized. I What an awesome, powerful saint he is! One of the best biographies of his life that I ever read was Padre Pio: the True Story by C. Bernard Ruffin. Wonderful book!

    Anyone read a book with Padre Pio's letters to his spiritual children in it? Most books are all about the miracles and life events... Is there a translation of his letters that is worth getting?

    "Pray, Hope and don't worry". My favorite quote of one of my favorite Saints.(St. Pio). Father John Corapi reminds me of Saint Padre Pio. Tough Warriors for God because they love us.

    one of my favorite quotes from padre pio bring me my weapon (his rosary)

    Padre Pio so saw the importance of spiritual warfare and the significance of it this quote just brings it out.
