The generous and very talented folks at St. Luke's Brush have offered you a beautiful way to celebrate the feast today. This darling Padre Pio doll can be yours--leave a comment for a chance to win. Amy and Garry Brix of St. Luke's Brush have a special devotion to Padre Pio. He has become a dear intercessor for their family in the last year and they're offering this darling way to introduce him to your children. Also, September 18th is the one year anniversary of the launch of their Etsy shop.So they are offering free shipping to their returning customers as a thank you for supporting this venture. They will honor that offer through September 30th. September 30th is also the date we'll announce the giveaway winner.
Happy Feast! And remember, Padre Pio was a Capuchin. Cappucino is entirely appropriate today;-)!
God our Father, in Saint Pio you gave a light to your faithful people. You made him a pastor of the Church to feed your sheep with his word and to teach them by his example. Help us by his prayers to keep the faith he taught and follow the way of life he showed us. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
