Something is amiss with a date of July 1913! Padre Pio would have been only 25, going on 26. At that time in his life he was not sick, did not have spiritual children, and was not yet praying for release from the body. My guess is that such a letter was more likely to have been written around 1963.

I think you are mistaken: According to the diary of Father Agostino da San Marco, who was his spiritual director in San Marco in Lamis, the young Francesco Forgione was afflicted with a number of illnesses. At six he suffered from a grave gastroenteritis which kept him bedridden for a long time. At ten he caught typhoid fever. At 17, he suddenly fell ill, complaining of loss of appetite, insomnia, exhaustion, fainting spells, and terrible migraines. He vomited frequently and could digest only milk and cheese. In June 1905, Fra Pio’s health worsened to such an extent that his superiors decided to send him to a mountain convent, in the hope that the change of air would do him some good.

Feast Day of Saint Michael
Saint Michael, my Hero
stay at my side
reduce satan to zero
the one puffed up with pride
Fight with me, Saint Michael,
guide me in the Spiritual Battle
help me in this reprisal cycle
to silence the viper’s rattle
Satan is a murderer and a thief
he steals away God’s Creation
he leads man to erroneous belief
he is vicious, a vile abomination
Saint Michael, “Who is as God” !
let your battle-cry be heard
using your sword as a prod
you disperse all of satan’s herd
Safely protected under your wings
we will defy his spiritual plunder
we will escape his poisonous stings
YOU,cast him forever,deep down under
Saint Michael Pray For Us
“Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom his love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide.” My guardian angel saved me in a desperate moment. It was quite an ordinary set of circumstances, and I barely believed in angels at the time, and cried out to mine in suicidal despair, and immediately received a soft quiet non-verbal answer in the sound of gentle rain. The fact I was answered when I was not particularly true to my faith at the time shows this angel reached out to me. This was not imagination, delusion, psychosis, fatigue, or other self-induced mental or emotional tricks. My guardian angel is real, now I know. He/she hovers very close by. Angels are not magicians or wish-granters, but aides from God to help us be what He wants us to be.
