'And our Lord said: for that the daughters of Sion are haughty, and have walked with stretched out neck, and went with twinklings of eyes, and clapped their hands, walked on their feet, and jetted in a set pace.
Our Lord shall make bald the crown of the daughters of Sion, and our Lord shall discover their hair.
In that day shall our Lord take away the ornament of shoes, and little Moons. And chains, and ouches, and bracelets, and bonnets. And the sheading combs, and slopes, and tablets, and sweet balls, and earlets.
And rings, and pearls hanging on the forehead. And changes of apparel, and short cloaks, and the fine linen, and needles, and looking glasses, and launes, and headbands, and bonegraces. And for sweet savor there shall be stink, and for a girdle a cord, and for frissled hair baldness, and for stomachs haircloth.'
A woman who sold pants in her retail store in Vancouver went to confession in Italy to Padre Pio and was refused absolution. . .
"He commanded her to return home to Canada and dispose of all this stock, and not to give any of the items to people who might wear them, and if she wanted his absolution, she could come back to Italy and recieve it, only after she ruthlessly carried out his orders."
Padre Pio didn't die long ago. He lived in recent times.
