Meditations by Padre Pio

Oh God! Let his poor heart of mine feel your presence more and more; complete in me, the work begun by you. I hear a voice within me saying assiduously: Sanctify yourself and others. Well, then, my dear, I wish it to be so, but don't know where to begin. Give me your help; I know that Jesus loves you so much, and you are so deserving. Therefore, speak to Him for me, ask Him to give me the grace to be a more worthy son of St. Francis, to become a good example for my fellow-priests; the grace that my fervor will always last and grow; so that I may become a perfect Capuchin.
