Meditations by Padre Pio

If Jesus reveals Himself, thank Him; if He hides Himself thank Him also. All is a peasantry of His love. May the merciful and compassionate Virgin continue to obtain for you from the ineffable goodness of the Lord the strength to endure to the end so many proofs of charity which He bestow on you. My wish for you is that you will come to expire on the Cross with Jesus and be able sweetly to exclaim in Him: "Consummatun est!"
