The Three Days of Darkness according to Padre Pio

The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear.  Have courage!  I am in the midst of you.”
January 23, 1950
(Message of  Jesus to Padre Pio)

Saint Padre Pio was an Italian priest who was known for is adoration of charity and love for the people around him. He bore the wounds of Christ, which is still something that cannot be explained. Francesco Forgione was born May 25th, 1887 in Pietrelcina, Italy.

Once he joined the Friary of St. Francis, he had several bouts of serious illness and religious ecstasy. Friars would report that strange noises would come from his cell. Padre Pio had frequently spoken about attacks from the devil, and it was there where these battles had taken place. Although he was very ill, he was still ordained a priest in 1910 at the Cathedral of Benevento in southern Italy.
