An extraordinary woman reveals an extraordinary priest
on April 12, 1999
Those who are interested in Padre Pio will both enjoy and be inspired by this book. The 20 well written chapters depict a uniquely powerful and soulful priest, one who seemed to have the rare power of reading another's deepest feelings and conflicts. To his confessors his sometimes brutally frank and brusque advice seldom missed its mark. The book also contains an arresting epilogue about Padre Pio's last days and hours. Following this is a fascinating account of the life of Madame Tangari, the spiritual daugher of Padre Pio throughout much of her life, and a woman who lived a life of great faith and bravery. If you wish to be deeply inspired by profound stories of Christian faith , I hope you will read this book!
