LIFE Runners patron is St. Padre Pio. The 2017 St. Pio Relay in Italy was a blessed pilgrimage.
LIFE Runners logo: The dove represents the Holy Spirit bringing power, healing, peace. We are all “running” to meet mothers in need of healing to prevent abortion, racing to cross the finish line that ends abortion. We carry our cross. “All In Christ for Pro-Life!” Jer 1:5 proclaims God’s Word – “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”
All In Christ for Pro-Life!
St. Padre Pio is the LIFE Runners patron saint. LIFE Runners founder Dr. Pat Castle encountered St. Pio during the last 10 minutes of the 2006 Pikes Peak Ascent race (newspaper, video, TV). St. Pio took on suffering to reduce the suffering of others. St. Pio’s intercessory prayers prevent and heal abortion wounds. LIFE Runners co-directed the 2017 St. Pio Relay for Pro-Life in Italy. St. Padre Pio prayed, “My past, O Lord, to Your mercy; my present, to Your love; my future, to Your providence.”
