Padre Pio’s advice on what to do during dark times

PADRE PIO HEALING PRAYER

Jeffrey Bruno | Aleteia

Philip Kosloski - published on 05/27/21

The beloved saint was a firm promoter of the power of the Rosary during troubling times in the world.

St. Padre Pio was known for his deep and abiding devotion to the Blessed Mother. He is quoted as saying once, “Let us endeavor, like so many elect souls, to follow this blessed Mother, to walk always close to her, not following any other path that leads to life, except the one trod by our Mother.”

In particular, he saw devotion to her being an invaluable weapon in the face of adversity.

In times of darkness, holding the Rosary is like holding your Blessed Mother’s hand.Pray the Rosary every day. Abandon yourself in the hands of Mary. She will take care of you.

This is a custom he practiced throughout his life, which was a tumultuous one, as he lived through two World Wars and a crippling epidemic.

When prayed in faith, the Rosary can be a powerful prayer that keeps us united with Jesus and his mother, Mary.

Don’t underestimate it, and if you find yourself in dark times, consider following Padre Pio’s words of wisdom.
