Collect for the feast of Saint Padre Pio
Almighty, Everliving God, who by a singular grace gave the priest saint Pious, gave a share in the cross of your Son, and by the means of his ministry renewed the wonders of your mercy. Grant that through his intercession, we may be united constantly to sufferings of Christ, and so brought happily to the glory of the resurrection. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
