Each night Padre Pio presided over a ceremony of evening prayers, including recitation of the rosary, and conclusion with this "irresistible novena" to the Sacred Heart.

The warm reds of natural agate remind us of the stigmata suffered by Padre Pio.

The Ave beads are 10mm ovals of natural agate; the introductory bead is a 20mm faceted flat oval of mahogony jasper.  The chaplet is joined with a bronze Padre Pio centerpiece, and completed with bronze Sacred Heart medal, both cast from vintage medals.
