Mangaluru, Sep 27: The annual feast of Padre Pio was celebrated at St Anne's Friary here on Sunday September 27 with much joy and devotion.

Bishop of Ballari diocese Dr Henry D'Souza celebrated the festal mass.

"Let the life of St Pio be a beacon of light for us. Let his knowledge and blessed life inspire us. He led a life of sacrifice and service and we should inculcate these qualities in our daily lives," said bishop Henry.

Thereafter, he and MLA J R Lobo were honoured in a public programme.

    “Pray, pray to the Lord with me, because the whole world needs prayer. And every day, when your heart especially feels the loneliness of life, pray. Pray to the Lord, because even God needs our prayers.” –
    Padre Pio
    He used to say always Unite yourselves to the prayers
