Prayer to Saint Pio

O God, you gave Saint Pio of Pietrelicina, Capuchin priest, the great privilege of participating in a unique way in the passion of Your Son, grant me through his intercession the grace of ... which I ardently desire; and above all grant me the grace of living in conformity with the death of Jesus, to arrive at the glory of the resurrection.

Glory be to the Father (three times)

St. Padre Pio's Life.
