Padre Pio was an Italian Capuchin friar known for his great kindness and charity. His town became a pilgrimage site for many people looking to revere his faith and to view his stigmata (miraculous wounds similar to those Christ received). According to the stories of those who visited him, Padre Pio could bilocate, levitate, and heal people with the touch of his hand. He once rid a young boy of meningitis by speaking the words, “Don’t worry, you will soon be cured.” One of Padre Pio’s most popular quotes is “Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry.” Saint Padre Pio’s canonization was the first we ever attended. He was born in May 1887 in the town of Pietrelcina, Italy.
