The Way of the Saints

St. Padre Pio

Francesco Forgiones was born on May 25th, 1887, in Pietrelcina, Italy to very holy and God-fearing parents. In January of 1903 he entered the Capuchin order of Friars and throughout the following years he grew to great holiness. Affectionately known as Padre Pio, he was blest with many marvelous spiritual gifts including visions, healing and the ability to read souls. He spent countless hours in the confessional and people from around the world flocked to him to request his prayers and receive his blessing. For nearly 50 years he suffered the wounds of Christ, the stigmata, and after a lifetime of patient endurance and exemplary service to his Lord, he died in 1968. Pope John Paul II canonized him a saint in June 2002.
