"Canonized on June 16, 2002, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968) was a Capuchin monk and mystic whose life was marked with miracles and wonders, but who said that his only desire was "to be a poor friar who prays." In this intimate biography, you will see the results of this humble Capuchin's prayers and discover fo yourself the Source of his great hope. The updated edition contains five new chapters covering the years between beatification and canonization, continued work in people's lives, and the devotion of St. John Paul II to this extraordinary saint of our day." -- (back cover)
