Here is one of the prayer requests I received tonight:
"Please can you pray for the soul of my 18 year old son Adrian who committed suicide on 11th October - feast of the Motherhood of Our Lady. He had been jilted by a girl. We had no warning. He went off to the woods near our house and was found two days later.
Despite the great number of Masses that have already been said for him, I still worry desperately for his soul. My husband and I have been begging Heaven for consolation - some sign that he is safe - but as yet, nothing. At the moment I am feeling completely destroyed. I have turned to Padre Pio in this crisis.
This may be of interest to others in the same position... Adrian had a very poor sense of smell. I have found out that this can be an early warning sign of serious mental illness, for example schizophrenia. We didn't find this out until after his death.
Thank you for your prayers. We will remember you in ours."
