A Saint within living memory, Padre Pio touched the lives of many by the simple faith with which he lived his life, praying, offering Mass, and reading souls. Among those inspired by the Saint, Graziella Dennzio Mandato was given the grace of living in San Giovanni Rotondo and receiving daily Communion and frequent confession from Padre Pio’s pierced hands. In these pages, Graziella’s firsthand account recalls Padre Pio’s blessing on her marriage, the day her oldest two sons received their First Communion from his hands, and the fruits of his intercession before God for the family’s immigration to America. Padre Pio adopted Graziella as a spiritual, guiding her and interceding for her for the entirety of her life. Even after her marriage and move to America, Padre Pio visited his spiritual daughter through dreams and a remarkable fragrance of sanctity. In this publication of Graziella’s memoirs, her sons have compiled additional chapters reflecting on their mother’s last earthly days and the spiritual fatherhood of Padre Pio. Hardcover.
