Who was Padre Pio?
Padre Pio was a holy Capuchin friar from the city of Pietrelcina, in Southern Italy who lived his ministry in San Giovanni Rotondo. He died in 1968. For fifty years he carried the wounds (stigmata) of Jesus Christ on his hands, feet and side. He had extraordinary gifts: he could read the minds and souls of everybody who approached him (their past and their future). He performed many incredible miracles in life. Today thousands of devotees around the world come to his intercession. With the offerings sent from all over the world, Padre Pio constructed one of the largest hospitals in Europe, which he inaugurated in 1956.
