The Secret to St.Padre Pio’s Humility 


Father Antonio Durante from Monterosso, a capuchin friar had the chance to observe how Padre Pio read his thoughts on one occasion.

One day while walking with the Pa­dre in front of the friary he noticed that Padre was the object of much affection and devotion from the people. Seeing this, Fr. Durante said to himself: “How can this man resist the temptation of vanity and of feeling pleased with himself’?

He had just finished saying this to himself when the Saint turned towards him, smiled and softly said to him: “See how much glory is being given to God!”.”

(Testimony of Fr. Antonio Durante, born August 7, 1912 and died June 11, 1970. Testimony is given in Genoa by Fr. Riccardo Geminiani, capuchin friar, April 20, 1995.)
