Even now I can pray for the happy death of my great-grandfather

Padre Pio was asked why he prayed for the happy death
of his great-grandfather who had already passed away.
He said, “For the Lord, the past doesn’t exist; the future doesn’t exist.
Everything is an eternal present. Those prayers had already been taken into account.
And so I repeat that even now I can pray for the happy death of my great-grandfather.”

– from the book, The Holy Souls by Alessio Parente, OFM Cap
