Advent and Christmas Wisdom from Padre Pio
Compiled by Anthony F. Chiffolo
Saint Pio of Pietrelcina--probably best known as Padre Pio--knew with complete certainty that at all times his place was beside Jesus, whether it be Jesus the suffering servant or Jesus the innocent babe. Providing some pre-Advent counsel, he wrote, "[O]ne thing only is necessary, to be close to Jesusâ€¦." This was his lifelong quest, and his premier advice to all of his spiritual children.
