Dear God, Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina experienced the stigmata, ecstasies, bilocation, and the gift of prophecy, because he had learned to free his soul from this world through the practices of fasting, prayer vigils, solitude, and other mortifications that subdued the passions of his flesh. I ask him to pray for my spiritual development, that I overcome any worldliness within me. O Lord, help me to live by his five rules of spiritual growth: weekly confession, daily Communion, spiritual reading, meditation, and frequent examination of conscience. Help me to completely abandon myself to You. Padre Pio, pray for me. Amen.
