    I've heard a lot on line about Padre Pio and I've watched the movie of his life.
    But I have questions about the three days of darkness and wonder if anyone has some answers.
    Is it really three days of darkness? Because I believe in Vassula's messages something was said to the effect of it really being three years of darkness.
    I'd love to hear from anyone that has any information or thoughts on this

    Blessed Anna Maria Taigi is the mystic most associated with the 'three days of darkness' topic. There is considerable doubt that Padre Pio ever spoke about the matter. There is some interesting information about the Pio connection (or lack of it!) at

    The TLIG messages do not speak of the three days of darkness although it is worth mentioning here what Vassula tells us of her birth when "My eyes did not open for three days and three nights when I was born". But the topic reminds me of an interesting vision that Vassula had in 1990 that is included in the messages on July 21, 1990 and which I copy below:

    I saw in a vision that I was looking from outside a window. It was daylight. Suddenly the earth started to shake violently under my feet. The ground was going up and down. The earthquake was eight points. It was not stopping. I looked from the window at the sky because it was losing its luminosity. I was staring up at the heavens while they were becoming darker by the second until they reached to become full night. Then I saw the stars falling, or rather, it seemed like they were speeding away from the eastern horizon to the western horizon; it seemed like they were leaving the heavens. Then the tremor stopped and there was a menacing darkness. I saw that I had a faint light in my room. I looked out of the window, but there were about three or four houses which had a light in the whole town.
