I promised Padre Pio that I would tell people of his intercession for me when I’m healed, so here I am. I am now a Padre Pio devotee. I only knew about the Padre Pio Chapel in Libis when I was diagnosed to have placenta accreta and had to undergo chemotherapy. Placenta accreta is a pregnancy related disease that happens to only 5% of pregnant women. I was unlucky to have it though for my first pregnancy that was even a blighted ovum (there was placenta but no baby). Anyway, you can read about these complications in Manila Fitness’ Complexities in Pregnancies post or in EzineArticles.

I first came to the Padre Pio Chapel Libis when my mom suggested that I go there. At that time, I was still hoping that I wouldn’t have to undergo chemo even if the medication was just mild dosages of 0.8 every day. I went to the Padre Pio Chapel Libis and prayed so hard. The worst outcome would be that the doctors would remove my uterus and I would not get pregnant anymore.

The Padre Pio Chapel Libis was quite solemn. It was a little chapel with a life-sized statue of Padre Pio at the front where people go and pray. The chapel also had various testimonials and letters at the right side that you can read. It included letters of gratitude from stars like Julius and Tintin Babao and other people. All of the letters were inspirational.

You can also write letters to Padre Pio asking for his intercession for your requests and petitions or light candles at a little area behind a separate smaller chapel (St Francis of Assisi Chapel)

I made a vow to spread the word about Padre Pio when I’m healed. I had to undergo two courses of chemotherapy but even during that time, we continued to ask him to intercede for us to the Father, so that I may be completely healed. Yesterday, I got my Beta hCG results and they were all normal. I will be having my final (hopefully) ultrasound tomorrow to see if there are still some placental remains, but I know God, through the intercession of Padre Pio, will clear me of all of these things.

The good news is that I may be able to have one child next year. It’s a make or break deal, but we will continue to pray that we may be given a healthy child.

If you have petitions that you would like to pray for, visit the Padre Pio Chapel Libis. I know this is far from what we post but we highly recommend that you visit and have faith.

Glory be to the father … (three times).

Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The following novena prayer was recited every day by Padre Pio for all those who asked his prayers. The faithful are invited to recite it daily, so as to be spiritually united with the prayer of Padre Pio.

O my Jesus, you have said: “Truly I say to you, ask and it will be given you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.” Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of ……

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father… Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

O my Jesus, you have said “Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.” Behold in your name I ask the Father for the grace of….

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father… Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

My Jesus, you have said “Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away.” Encouraged by your infallible words I now ask for the grace of …

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father… Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.

Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: St Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.

    Mar 11, 2014 I was diganosed with Acute Coronary Syndrome – Unstable Angina – I have 2 Coronary blockage both @ 85% and undergo Angioplasty of the same day. It was unexpected and very traggic to me and my husband, everydat my anxieties attacks me @ night before I go to bed.

    One Sunday morning, Mar 23, 2014, my 1st time, I was brought by my husband to the Chapel of Father Pio, I was so amazed, a beautiful and solemn place to dwell that fits a person who deserves a miracle. I tearfully endorsed my prayers to Father Pio that only contained the intention for my fast and full recovery. I don’t even know who Father Pio is, I only knew his miracles through reading the testimonies of so many people who believed, it’s all located at the board inside the chapel. Through these letters I sincerely and certainly believed with his miraculous healing specially for the sick.

    I feel so very lucky I came to visit on the 23rd which happens to be the feast day of Father Pio, and one of his Novena Prayers is dedicated to the Sacret Heart of Jesus which incidentally my favorite Novena too.

    I came home with me the Novena Booklet of Father Pio together with the Holy Water contained in a bottle with his image. I have these as my weapons to combat all my fears and anxieties.

    Yesterday, Apr 13, 2014, my second visit and im happy to write my prayers which contained only “Thanks giving” because I knew I am my way to my full recovery of heart desease. Thank you po Father Pio, I knew I will be totally healed.

    My mommy, Epifania De Vera is supposed to have her kidney stones surgery as she slipped into coma. She is currently in ICU due to bronchal spasm (reaction to anesthesia). The relic visited her in her ICU room, last Friday (nov.15, 2013). The doctors have confirmed my mom is no longer in comatose. But we continue to seek intercession of Padre Pio, for speedy recovery, complete healing of my mom. It’s day 13 in ICU. We miss our mom’s hug, voice, touch and home cooked meals. My mom is only 64, I haven’t told her I’m engaged (she’s been wanting to see me get married) because I wanted her to fully recover of the kidney stones operation. In God’s will, and in the name of Padre Pio, my mom will soon be home with us in her vibrant self.

    To all of you reading this, please hug your mom and tell her you love her. I also seek for your help to include my mom in your prayers.

      Hi, if you have not managed to get to Padre Pio chapel at Libis, take an EDSA bus to Ortigas Ave. Then take another bus or jeep towards Cainta or Antipolo. Go down at the corner of Ortigas and C5. Take a jeep towards UP. Go down in front of Honda car dealer. The chapel is beside Honda.

    Many miracle healings and conversion were attributed to St. Pio’s intercession. I believe St. Pio will help me in my present situation the way he did help you and countless others.

    The St Pio Center has been around for years, and it was only 2 weeks ago that I came to know about it. I have been there twice, and luckily, my second visit was last Sunday, Sept 23 – the feast day of this charismatic Saint. It was in Sept 23, 1968 that St. Pio joined his Maker.

    Thanks for this heartwarming, and I hope many will be inspired to seek St. Pio’s intercession.

    I started visiting Padre Pio's shrine in Libis and compeleted a nine-day novena last February 2011. I continued to go to the shrine even after I started receiving answered prayers, jsut a few days after my novena. I buy some prayer leaflets and start handing them out to those who I think and feel need it most.' my own little way to let others know about Padre Pio [the way I call him] and that he is indeed miraculous.

    Thank you, Padre Pio.
