I think he helps me out.

I also like Padre Pio, but who doesn't?

Wow,  never heard of him... sounds like an unusual saint! When did he live?

They say he was born around 498 and lived until 618 A.D.

Now I pray primarily to God, also to Mary, and I feel more like I address conversation to Ste Therese, when I am praying the rosary to Our Blessed Mother I address it to Ste Therese at the same time, as if we are all in the room together.

I thoroughly enjoyed her autobiography. I'll pray to her every once in a while. Her father I pray to a little as well. I like the story of his life.
