15 Amazing Padre Pio Quotes on the Spiritual Life

I want to share some of that wisdom with you. Here are a couple short quotes from his letters that have left a lasting impact on me.

“Jesus is with you even when you don’t feel His presence. He is never so close to you as He is during your spiritual battles. He is always there, close to you, encouraging you to fight your battle courageously. He is there to ward off the enemy’s blows so that you may not be hurt.” (8/15/1914)

“The storms that are raging around you will turn out to be for God’s glory, your own merit, and the good of many souls.” (6/15/1914)

“Every sacrifice which your soul makes, every good is does is directed to God for the sanctification of all.” (4/2/1917)

“Don’t be daunted by the cross. The surest test of love consists in suffering for the loved one, and if God suffered so much for love, the pain we suffer for Him becomes as lovable as love itself.” (7/14/1914)
