September 23 is the feast of Padre Pio, so I woke up early to have a hearty breakfast at Coffee Bean.
I had my favorite eggs ben and americano while people-watching at Eastwood.
I walked to Padre Pio Chapel in Libis to hear morning mass to celebrate our patron’s feast day.
After mass, there was a veneration of relics and blessing of holy objects.
Padre Pio’s gift of spiritual renewal and his mantra pray, hope, and don’t worry is presently relevant in my life. I am currently praying for a job offer and some personal intentions. I am also thankful for the blessings that continue to pour into my life.
May the intercession of Padre Pio continue to inspire us to live better lives in a world that always challenges us to fulfill the Gospels!
