One day in the Convent, Padre Pio was sitting in the garden next to his room. Padre Alessio Parente, due to the fact they were alone in the garden, asked him some advise about a answer he had received in a letter. But Padre Pio said in a harsh tone: “Please, leave me alone. Do you not see that I am busy ? To be honest Padre Alessio could not see anyone around him, he did not say anything. But Padre Alessio thought: “Why did he said he was busy if nobody is around? He is just moving the Rosary in his hand.”
Padre Pio knew what Padre Alessio was thinking and he said: “Have you seen all the Guardian Angels of my spiritual sons that were standing in front of me? They go and they come and they do not leave me alone even for a moment.”
However he did not hesitate to give Padre Alessio the answer he was looking for.
