Thank you for taking the time to read and respond to this! I have had some good feedback from it. The really amazing thing is that I was reluctant to publish it, but God had other ideas for me. I hope it helps others see some very stark differences between the Church that St.Pio grew up in and the faith he practiced, and the Church of our times and the faith that has sadly diminished. God bless you!
