Bernard Ruffin’s book on Padre Pio is excellent...and he ain’t even Catholic.
Padre Pio: The True Story focuses primarily on the post World War II era to the time of Padre Pio's death. It was during this time that an obscure Italian Capuchin priest attracted worldwide attention for his holiness as well as his mysterious stigmata.
The author, Reverend Bernard Ruffin, is a Lutheran minister. He was the guest of Fr. Benedict Groeschel last week on EWTN's Sunday Night Live.
Thanks for your correction.
