Pray, Hope and Don't Worry: Coping Skills from a Saint

Truck with Padre Pio image that can be seen on the highways in Italy.  Pray, Hope and Don't Worry is the message of St. Padre Pio.
Tractor trailers bear his image.
 
In Italy, it is not uncommon to see semi-tractor trailers zipping down the highway boasting an image of an infamous Capuchin friar.  On my own visits to Rome, I have seen this on more than one occasion and just about every practicing Roman Catholic, and probably even some non-practicing but Italian at heart can speak of this interesting guy. It is no wonder why I love that country! September 23 marks the feast day of this fascinating modern-day saint.
