Thou hast generously blessed Thy servant,
St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
with the gifts of the Spirit.
Thou hast marked his body
with the five wounds of Christ Crucified,

in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

of St. Pio of Pietrelcina,

to grant me the grace of
(mention your intentions here).
Recite three Glory Be…
