>About this book:
During the season of Advent, we anticipate the coming of the Messiah. He who was sent was not a warrior-king, but an outcast who preached an all-inclusive love and who continues to bring God's blessed community to life each day. Saint Pio loved this Messiah and desired to be with him. One might say his entire life was a prolonged "advent," a restless anticipation of that blissful moment when he would finally be with God.
The quotations found within the pages of Advent Meditations With Saint Pio of Pietrelcina are drawn from his own letters, allowing readers to accompany him on his Advent journey. They will experience his searching, share his longing, feel his discouragement, yearn with his confidence, and exult with his hope. Daily excerpts are paired with inspiring Scripture passages that navigate readers through the themes of the season-patience, hope, humility, and joy. Spending a few moments each day with Saint Pio will help prepare the heart to receive the Savior this Advent season.
