St. Padre Pio: Devotee of the Most Holy Rosary

“The Rosary was Padre Pio’s favored prayer. He prayed it many times a day, decade after decade. He had always a rosary wrapped around his hand or arm, as it was a jewel or a shield. He had other rosaries under the pillow and on the nightstand. He called the rosary his ‘weapon.’ He had made a resolution years earlier to say ‘daily no less than five complete rosaries.'”

Padre Fernando da Riese
