Man of Hope

"It was hard for me to watch him walking in the sacristy or the corridors of the monastery, bent over, dragging his swollen feet, and holding on to the walls so that he would not fall down.  His suffering was tremendous, but he bore it without complaining as he continued to give himself to those who needed him.  When he would lift his head and look around, his big eyes looked like they were burning, not from pain but from a goodness that he could not contain".  ~excerpt from Padre Pio:  Man of Hope by Renzo Allegri
