thank you so much for this story!

Dear Ventana;

We were talking about Padre Pio last night and my b.i.l. shared this neat story about Padre Pio, which I thought you might like to hear, because I know you like him. I looked up in the old threads to find you.

Here's my story: This is a true story, told to my brother in law by the lady involved.

she really loved Padre Pio and wanted to meet him very badly, and since she was Italian, she was granted a meeting with him ( he would meet with a handful of people every day).

When she got through the line and met him she told him,

"Father, I most of all want to know God."

"What's stopping You ! " He exclaimed loudly.

Then, she bowed her head and asked for his blessing.

As she raised her head after the blessing, she looked at Padre Pio and instead saw Jesus Christ Himself.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

RB
