St. Padre Pio: "Jesus is with you!"

“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.”  St Padre Pio

This is AMAZING that you just posted this! I happened upon your blog today because I read about St. Maria Goretti and was led to something that you had written. When I saw you were a Salesian priest, I decided to look through your blog further. I was taught by Salesians and Don Bosco and the Salesians set the way for me to be able to have a firm faith. Recently, I have prayed to St. Pio because my family is enduring spiritual attack. I have asked him to take myself and my family on as his spiritual children. I was speaking to my friend who adores St. Pio about this and showed him your blog as we were speaking about Maria Goretti. I saw your post on Blessed Juniper Serra and shared it. Well, I decided to go back to your blog again today and just saw the answer from St. Pio. The Holy Spirit is truly amazing and I want to thank you for using your time and gifts to encourage others on our journey through this life!
