Canonized in 2002, Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, better known as Padre Pio, was a Franciscan Capuchin priest who bore the five wounds of Jesus Christ on his body for more than 50 years. Padre Pio was also a seer, psychic, prophet, miracle-worker, confessor, mystic, ascetic and missionary on a worldwide scale.
Hundreds of books and articles have been written about Padre Pio. Lengthy articles about him have appeared in Newsweek, Time and The New York Times Magazine.
As a young man, Padre Pio received the stigmata and worked many miracles. Those close to him insist he began to manifest multiple spiritual gifts, including healing, prophecy, extraordinary abstinence from both sleep and nourishment (Padre Agostino recorded that Padre Pio was able to subsist for at least 20 days at Verafeno on only communion wafers without any other nourishment), the ability to read hearts, the gift of conversions and pleasant-smelling wounds. This beautiful little booklet tells Padre Pio’s story.
