CHRISTMAS CARD FROM MARY PYLE TO ANGELINA DECEMBER 9, 1967
Merry Christmas! San Giovanni Rotondo (Foggia) Italia 71013
9 - 12- 67
Dear Angelina, May the Infant Jesus live and grow in your mind and in your heart as he grew and lived in the little house of Nazareth. (P.Pio) This is the Christmas message which P.Pio sends to his spiritual children all over the world. I am late in thanking you for the $10 which I sent to Pietrelcina for Masses. I have a mass celebrated there every day for the P.Pio's intentions- You and Dominic took care of 12 masses. I also Thank you very much for the cigarettes and candies but please do not send cigarettes again because I had to pay 4,000 ($15) duty on them. I send you my love and Padre Pio's blessing for the New Year.
Affectionately Maria Pyle

Dear Ray and company.
I gave your very generous $97 offering for Masses with the intentions to Padre Pio on April 18th. Late in giving iT and still later in answering you, but never mind, Padre Pio reads your letter while you are writing iT or perhaps he reads it in your heart before iT reaches the paper -
When your children want explanations about Padre Pio just tell them that he loves Jesus so much and Jesus loves him so much that they have become very much alike. Jesus has given Padre Pio his wounds so that...

...they can both suffer together, to make us all be good. When God sees that he is suffering so much, He gives hem every-thing which he asks for - he makes people get well and makes bad people become good. We must all pray with him and try to be very good.
The inauguration of the hospital on May 5th was wonderful and the patients are beginning to arrive. The best part of the inauguration was the accertation (I don't know if that word exists) of a great miracle which, our beloved Father had performed. A sixteen year old boy came here having been sent by a doctor, who said that nothing could be done for the boy who had a tumor behind his eye -cancer - His eye was already deformed and his suffering was attroscious. The Mother said that she would not move from here until her boy was healed. On the 5th of May she brought the boy was examined again by the doctor who had sent him and who is now here at the hospital and the tumor had entirely disappeared - Deo Gratius!
