Scripted in Heaven by Lourdes Duque Baron is a powerful testament of the inscrutable workings of God’s grace and a life-changing encounter that portrays, with vivid clarity, the solicitude of God’s tender love. Baron is a respected surgeon who believes he is in control, but in fact his life is on the brink of mortal danger. An encounter with St. Pio of Pietrelcina will not only bring him healing but conversion. In this book, divided into three parts, the author shares the miracle of his conversion and brings to readers the testimony of the depths of God’s unfathomable mercy, communicated through the intervention of his faithful servant, the stigmatic friar.
The narrative begins with a dramatic event. A lady called Marie hurries towards Dr. Baron through the halls and tells him as a matter of urgency: "Dr. Baron, Padre Pio told me to pray for you because he said you have a kidney problem." The doctor doesn't believe her, but then the things that follow will change him forever. The story is told in a strong voice — honest and compassionate. It’s a powerful invitation to readers to open their heart to the transforming grace of God; the tale of a miracle that will make readers reconsider their approach to faith, their attitude towards life, and the hope we are called to live as Christians. Scripted in Heaven is a gift of faith, but it is also the story of a man whose relationship with God has touched the lives of millions of Christians, and it can touch yours too — the story of St. Pio of Pietrelcina.
