First Titled, The Holy Man on the Mountain, this book tells the fascinating life story of Padre Pio, with emphasis JL, on his life as a seminarian, young priest and his early decades at San Giovanni Rotondo. Incredible is the number of times the Capuchins sent him home sick unto death while a seminarian and young priest and how he was finally sent to remote San Giovanni Rotondo "for a couple of weeks of mountain air." He never left. But from this small, remote mountain friary, he became world famous and exercised unbelievable influence on the entire world¿ though early on, he was forbidden by his superiors to preach, to write or to correspond. A few clerics developed enmity toward Padre Pio, resulting several times in orders from his superiors that he be moved. It is simply hillarious to learn why he never was¿though being under obedience, he was entirely willing to do so.The author also weaves in the Saint's early work with L'Americana, Mary Pyle, his "foreign ambassadress," and then with the American GI's who came to visit him during WWII, when San Giovanni Rotondo was liberated from the Germans.
