Pio Words of Faith (from the padrepiodevotions.org
Padre Pio Novena
MAXIMS OF PADRE PIO:
study of books one seeks God; by meditation one finds Him.”
“The life of a Christian is nothing but a perpetual struggle
against self; there is no flowering of the soul to the beauty of
its perfection except at the price of pain.”
“Whoever does not meditate is like someone who never looks
in the mirror before going out, doesn’t bother to see if he’s
today, and may go out dirty without knowing it. The person who meditates
and turns his mind to God, who is the mirror of his soul, seeks
to know his fault, tries to correct them, moderates his impulses,
and puts his conscience in order."
