Journey 9 Days with St. Padre Pio in preparation for his feast day.
Who is Padre Pio?
Padre Pio (1887-1968), a Capuchin priest, is probably one of the saints whose life is the most extraordinary in the history of the Church: he is the only priest to have received and borne the stigmata of Our Lord for more than 50 years.
Beatified by John Paul II on 2 May 1999 and canonised on 16 June 2002, Padre Pio is celebrated on 23 September, with the "obligatory degree" according to the liturgical memory.
Pope Benedict XV, during the saint's lifetime, in 1921 already declared :
Truly Padre Pio is an extraordinary man, one of those whom God sends to earth from time to time, to convert men.
