No one will say how is it prayers said to a particular saint
in Heaven for their intercession to God for a particular
intention get answered? Some prayer intentions end in miracles and are science tested to confirm. Another fact, prayer intentions begin, they are said silently often, no one knows of them. Explain how they got answered?
There are so many miracles attributed to St. Padre Pio, while he was alive and now that he is in Heaven. People from different faith backgrounds. One science tested
miracle while Pio was alive, a worker's eye was completely
destroyed and miraculously, it appeared, in tact, he

Read some testimonies... Pio is certainly one powerful saint to ask for help. The saint's intercession is all
in God's Will. We are all one family.
God wants us all to believe the same, He's going to show
the world soon.
Thanks for your comment. I just am not impressed with mystics, signs and wonders. To me that is like the stars of show biz. Showing concern for the fatherless and the poor is a more concrete way to build a Christian spiritual family and society. Mystics remind me of the great peacenik John Lennon, who abandoned his son and wife. On one level they look great to the world, but on a close personal level they are failures. I think the mystics would leave the ox in the pit on the Sabbath. Why seek the confusion of mystics rather than the Gospel? Unity of Christendom ain't gonna happen with Fatima, Padre Pio, Assisi, Vatican I, II , or the global superstate.
Ephesians 1:10 says to Re-Establish all things in Christ. To me that means that all these add ons of the past 1000 years will be found to have been the veil that covered up the true Christian faith. The same effect as having the tares grow over the wheat.
As far as prayers and devotion to the saints, I think more like a Protestant than a Catholic. Hail Mary means last resort, or pull the emergency handle to open the escape hatch. If Christ is driving the bus, don't you think He gets mad at all those people that keep pulling the emergency handle? It shows a lack of faith and respect of the driver, just like those apostolic fishermen who panicked in a storm.
I wish I could convince you brother. wildhoney, what about
her witness to the mystical and charisms in her life?
You love God very much so...
