Prayer to Padre Pio in suffrage for the deceased loved ones – Padre Pio always remembered the soul of all the faithful departed in his prayers – especially during Mass.
For Padre Pio, the life of our dearly departed was an indispensable lesson for the life of those still living. He said: “There are more souls in purgatory who climb this hill (in San Giovanni Rotondo) than there are souls of living men and women who attend my Masses and seek after my prayers.”
Prayer for the Souls of the Faithful Departed
Sweetest Padre Pio, with your angelic charity, aid the souls of our dearly departed. Be their comforter and intercede for them so they may enter heaven as soon as possible to praise the Lord forever. Beloved Padre Pio, we appeal to the great goodness you have shown to us poor sinners, and we implore you to free the souls of our deceased loved ones who are groaning in Purgatory. We turn to you on behalf of all our brothers and sisters who live in faith and who have since passed on, those who now sleep in eternal rest.
Glorious Padre Pio, our invaluable protector, we come to you in prayer. We plead with you to grant us grace so that the doors of the Holy City, that Heavenly Jerusalem, may be opened to the souls of our dearly departed.
Let them praise, together with you, the angels, all the saints, and the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Padre Pio, let them rest in peace. Amen
If You Love Me, Don’t Cry
If you knew the unfathomable mystery of heaven, where I am; if you could see and feel what I feel and see in these endless horizons and in that light that reaches all and penetrates, you would never weep for me. God’s charm now absorbs me by his expressions of infinite beauty. In a confrontation with this new life, the things of the past are small and insignificant. I still retain all my affection for you and a tenderness that I could never really reveal to you. We loved each other tenderly in life, but everything was then very fleeting and limited. I live in the clear expectation of your arrival, one day, among us. Think of me this way. In your struggles, think of this beautiful dwelling, where death does not exist and where, together, we will live in the purest and most powerful enchantment, close to the source of joy and love. If you truly love me, do not cry for me anymore. I am at peace. Amen
