Padre Pio’s smile
The Lord loves those who give with joy”. How can we combine joy with the utmost suffering in which at times we are immersed? St. Pio of Pietralcina – the man who more than any other has embodied suffering in continuous union with Jesus, the Man of sorrows – has always been the expression of a fullness of joy that manifested itself in constant witticism filled with a profound sense of humour.
