Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, together with Our Lord Jesus Christ, you've been able to withstand the temptations of the Devil. You suffered the beatings and the oppression of the demon of hell, who wanted to have you abandon your journey of holiness. We beg you to pray for us so that, with your help and the help of all the Heavenly Kingdom, we will be able to find the strength to set sin aside and to persevere in our faith until the day of our death.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart
"Have courage and do not fear the assaults of the Devil. Remember this forever; it is a healthy sign if the devil shouts and roars around your conscience, since this shows that he is not inside your will." ~Padre Pio
