Padre Pio, would often tell people who came to him, “Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry.” These words give comfort and healing to millions of people.
Padre Pio was born May 25, 1887 in Pietrelcina, Italy, a small town in southern Italy, and he died on Sept 23, 1968.
Who was this man who has inspired millions around the world? And what does he tell us today?
First of all he was a Capuchin. This means that he was a son of St Francis. When people think of Padre Pio they connect him with many spiritual gifts such as having the stigmata, perfume, prophecy, gifts of healing and bilocation.
If we didn’t know we might think he was a figure out of the middle ages. He was a contemporary saint. He lived thru the first and second World Wars, the Second Vatican council, and the revolution of the 60’s.
