    Prayer of Padre Pio
    Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You. Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak and I need Your strength, that I may not fall so often. Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life, and without You, I am without fervor. Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light, and without You, I am in darkness. Stay with me, Lord, to show me Your will. Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You. Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love You very much, and always be in Your company. Stay with me, Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You. Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of love. Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late and the day is coming to a close, and life passes; death, judgment, eternity approaches. It is necessary to renew my strength, so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You. It is getting late and death approaches, I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows. O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile! Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all it’s dangers. I need You. Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of the bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the Light which disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart. Stay with me, Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to You, if not by communion, at least by grace and love. Stay with me, Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation, because I do not merit it, but the gift of Your Presence, oh yes, I ask this of You! Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more. With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity. Amen

    I have sad news that my mum passed away on 4th September :(

    When she was last in hospital, the doctor told us mum wouldn't be going home. Then they moved her into a palliative care room and I told her I'd always be there. I was praying Divine Mercy chaplet as I cared for her, and she was peaceful with no pain when she died. Can everyone please pray for her soul, as the rest of my family wanted a graveside funeral.

    karnala I am sorry to hear your Mother has passed away. You are in my prayers and I will pray for her soul - of course.
    Padre Pio: "I will stand at the gates of Heaven until all my spiritual children have entered." Ask his intercession He is amazing on this!
    I will light candle for her in church.

    Thanks for your sympathy & prayers. It's been a difficult time with palliative care and now there's sadness. She lived a long life to 84 years. I've had St Pio's fridge magnet with me all the time, as there were a lot of hospital visits towards the end. Lots of praying, hoping and trying not to worry. God in His kindness took her to have rest, with no more health battles to worry about.
