May Saint Padre Pio be with us all in Good Times and Bad and guide us on our journey until we meet him at the Gate of Heaven. Saint Pio has said that he will remain at the Gate of Heaven and will not leave until all his Spiritual Children has entered. Saint Padre Pio pray for me and my Family. Liam(Winthrop.

While not Catholic myself, and having read your list of unacceptable comments, I am saddened. I can't believe that people would come to a church site like this and berate or belittle those who have faith in God. I believe in God and I firmly believe in the ability of prayers to work miracles, like gaining employment. The scriptures say "The prayers of the faithful availeth much." Keep praying and have faith!
