Secondly, there are prayers and calls to action from Chiffolo in the book that sound very New Age or like American Indian "spirit language." His style is fluffy and modern and does not compliment Saint Pio at all. Oddly, the compiler also capitalizes random words, while leaving (male) divine pronouns that refer to God in lower cases.
From Day 5: "O God of Soaring Eagles, raise me above this obscurity, that I might once again glimpse my destination."
From Day 12: "I feel God calling me to create my own, unique path through Eternity."
From Day 14: "O God of Clear Seeing, I have never really seen you, for I have been looking for you in the grandeur of cathedrals and the silence of cloisters...."
From Day 15: "Has my own negative energy pushed away your divine energy? O that I might allow you to rewire my interior life and realign the forces in my soul!"
This particular book, written with teachings from a very holy man Padre Pio (Now Saint Pio) helped me immensely to journey through this time. I learned much about Padre Pio, but with his help, I learned even more about myself. I am looking forward to re-establishing this short relationship with Saint Pio this advent, and thoroughly recommend this book to anyone else who is also interested in doing this.
