About the Author

Madame Katharina Tangari is a German author of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. After meeting St. Padre Pio, she was taken on as his spiritual daughter, and was subsequently guided by the saint for the last eighteen years of his life. In Stories of Padre Pio, she gives her readers a rare, firsthand look into the life of the remarkable man who was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002. The book was originally published in German before Madame Tangari translated it into Italian. It was further translated into English by John Collorafi, and published by TAN in 1996.

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!

My father gave me this book in 1998 as a gift. I couldn't put it down I finished it in one evening. My family and I have been followers of Padre Pio since my mother heard a talk given at her school in the 1950's. I have read seven books about Padre Pio and this book is still my favorite one of the seven.

Madame Katharina Tangari was so brave and a true follower of Padre Pio. I hope someone writes a book and a movie about Madame Katharina Tangari's life. If you want to learn about Padre Pio's struggles and road to Sainthood this is the book for you.

After you read this book you will want to travel to San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy and see where Padre Pio lived and died. A year in a half ago I went to San Giovanni Rotondo and I was not disappointed.

Shows how Padre Pio healed bodies, souls and hearts--through miracles, providential "coincidences," etc. Assistance in illness, bereavement, broken marriage, irrational fear, business, exiting Freemasonry, finding lost objects, spiritual life and conversions. Rare firsthand view of this great, holy priest.

This book gives you great insight of the Saint Padre Pio, but it also gives you great insight on the author of the book too. St. Padre Pio was a great saint who everone knows because of the stigmata, bilocation and he could read souls. This was given to him by grace because of his faith, prayerfulness, obedience, penance and humility. The author of the book, Madame Katharina Tangari, was the other kind of saint that not too many people know about. Her love of the Rosary, going to Mass and use of the sacraments, going to confession with St. Padre Pio, all led to her salvation. This book is excellent and I highly recommend it. This book will help awaken your faith and will leave you totally amazed. This quote from St. Padre Pio on the inside page of the book says it all and is so very important to remember..."We must be alert on the road to salvation. Only the fervent succeed in reaching it, never the tepid or those who sleep!"

Good book on amazing stories about Padre Pio's intercession and miracles he performed for others. The chapter in the back of the book gives a history of the monastery where he lived. Also, short bio on Madam Tangari, his spiritual daughter, who was also a holy woman. Would like to read a book about this amazing woman too!

I found the book to be deeper, better, and more inspiring than many such books, due to the devoted and mature outlook of the author, who was herself a remarkable person of faith. The book concentrates more on the spiritual growth inherent in the stories, as opposed to the miracles surrounding this great saint. She is not a polished writer, but is very simple and direct. The book is less about Padre Pio himself, and more about how he transformed the spiritual lives of those who came to him for help.

Like another viewer, I only give the book three stars due to the horribly cheap binding job of TAN Books and Publishers. The book just falls apart right away.
