El 22 de enero de 1903, vistió el hábito capuchino y tomó santo padre pio nombre de Hermano Pío. El 22 de enero de 1904, emitió la profesión de los votos simples y a continuación fue transferido al convento de Sant’Elia en Pianisi (Campobasso), en el cual el 27 enero 1907, emitió la profesión de los votos solemnes.

Durante los años 1904 -1909, el Padre Pío viajó por varios continentes para completar sus estudios escolásticos y teológicos. Estuvo obligado constantemente a regresar a su casa por motivos de salud.

El 18 de julio de 1909 fue ordenado diácono en la iglesia del convento de Morcone. Padre Pío: Enfermedad y Sacerdocio • Los años de Padre Pío en Pietrelcina (1910-1916). Siempre por razones de salud, el hermano Pío se vio obligado a permanecer en Pietrelcina, acogido por su familia. A finales de 1916 fue asignado al convento de Sant’Anna en Foggia. El 10 de agosto de 1910, fue nombrado sacerdote, en la capilla del duomo Benevento, con la presencia únicamente de su madre, ya que su padre había emigrado a América.

Su permanencia en Santo padre pio se caracterizó por ejercer en el ministerio sacerdotal, en colaboración con el párroco, desde una vida de plegarias intensas hasta una constante correspondencia con sus padres espirituales. Desde septiembre de 1911, empezaron a aparecer, en sus manos, los primeros estigmas no permanentes. El acontecimiento se repitió prácticamente cada semana hasta 1918.

En este periodo el Padre Pío estaba siempre enfermo, sujeto a constantes acosos, particularmente diabólicos, y visitado por múltiples visiones celestiales. El 6 de noviembre de 1915 fue llamado a las armas en el distrito de Benevento y transferido inmediatamente a Nápoles. Su breve época militar fue interrumpida debido a las largas licencias médicas y termina el 16 de marzo de 1918 cuando por sus pésimas condiciones físicas, lo dan de baja.

Padre Pío: Estigmas y Dones M ísticos • Padre Pío: los años de los fenómenos místicos y dones divinos (1918-1919). El 28 de julio de 1916, acompañado del Padre Paolino, llega por primera vez a San Giovanni de Rotondo. En aquel convento es retenido “provisoriamente” y se convierte en su residencia hasta su muerte (23 de septiembre de 1968).

En los primeros dos años, el Padre Pío continuó su correspondencia epistolar santo padre pio sus directores espirituales, con sus hijas espirituales y con las numerosas almas que se reunían ante él. En el convento recibe el cargo de director y docente de los seminarios. Llegado el momento justo, se forma alrededor del Padre Pío un grupo de fieles deseosos de seguirlo espiritualmente. Nace el primer “grupo de oración”. 1918 fue para el Padre Pío un año rico en fenómenos místicos y dones divinos: • Desde el 5 al 7 de agosto, recibe la “transverberación del cuerpo” (Epist.

1,1051-1056); • El 20 de septiembre, aparecen los estigmas (Epist. 1,1092-1095); Padre Pío: Aflicciones y Adversidades • Padre Pío: Los años de las calumnias y acusaciones (1919-1931). Este periodo fue muy movido y doloroso en la vida del Padre Pío.

En 1919, surgieron algunos artículos periodísticos sobre la estigmatización del Padre Pío y se inician rumores de locura, cada vez más abundantes, dirigidos hacia el convento de San Giovanni de Rotondo.

Los devotos concurren principalmente para escuchar su misa y para hacerse confesar. Se inicia el vórtice de las calumnias y acusaciones en contra del Padre Pío. La Santa Sede se vio obligada a intervenir, imponiendo restricciones al Padre Pío y disponiendo su alejamiento del convento de San Giovanni de Rotondo.

Esta decisión provocó una fuerte reacción de los devotos, los cuales se alzaron preocupados sobre la posible transferencia del Padre Pío. La orden se suspende poco después.

Paralelamente se realizan numerosas inspecciones médicas y espirituales de parte del santo padre pio supremo de la Santa Sede. El Padre Pío, en este periodo, continuó su vida de plegarias apostólicas en el ministerio de la confesión, en la perfecta obediencia a sus superiores y la jerarquía eclesiástica.

El 9 de junio la Santa Sede ordenó al Padre Pío la suspensión de todos los ministerios, con excepción de las misas que habría tenido que realizar solo y sin fieles, en la capilla interna del convento.

Durante todo el periodo de segregación, que duraron hasta el 15 de julio de 1933, la vida del Padre Pío se desenvolverá así: aproximadamente dos horas para la celebración de la Misa; plegarias y oraciones hasta el mediodía, interrumpidas por aproximadamente una hora de estudio; en la tarde más plegarias desde el atardecer hasta casi la medianoche.

Padre Pío: Peregrinos y Penitentes • Padre Pío: los años de relativa calma (1933-1955). El 16 de julio de 1933, el Padre Pío recibió el permiso para celebrar nuevamente la Misa en la iglesia; sucesivamente le viene otorgada la facultad de confesar solo a los hombres y algunos meses después a las mujeres. Retomó su ministerio “mártir del confesionario”. Las penitencias que ocurren para recibir la absolución sacramental, crecen de manera impresionante. Los superiores del convento están obligados a disponer de un sistema de reserva para poder manejar la gran cantidad de personas y mantener el orden.

Los fieles también concurren numerosos para participar en su Misa. La iglesia del convento es incapaz de contener tantas personas, tanto es santo padre pio que el 5 de junio de 1954, Padre Pío se vio obligado a celebrar la misa al aire libre en la plaza exterior de la iglesia. Durante este periodo, se registran visitas de ilustres personajes intelectuales y políticos provenientes de todas partes del mundo.

El Padre Pío fundó los “grupos de oraciones” en respuesta a las apremiantes apelaciones del Papa Pío XII que invitaba a la plegaria. “Démonos que hacer -dice recogiéndose la manga. Respondamos nosotros primero a esta apelación dejando al Pontífice de Roma”. Hoy se cuentan al menos dos mil difusiones en todo el mundo. Durante los años oscuros de la segunda guerra mundial, el Padre Pío fue un santo padre pio esperanzador” de numerosas esposas y madres, que iban con él para pedir oraciones dedicadas a sus seres queridos que se encontraban en combate y tener santo padre pio de su suerte.

También en este periodo, de relativa calma, no faltaron las penumbras. En particular: las cartas anónimas que desacreditaban su consulta moral; el Papa Giovanni XXIII ordenó posteriores investigaciones sobre el Padre Pío; un decreto de la Santa Sede condenó algunos libros no autorizados sobre la vida y obra del Padre Pío.

Santo padre pio Pío: operaciones sociales Este fue un período en el que el Padre Pío comenzó a esforzarse por beneficiar a la sociedad, esfuerzos que luego tuvieron un crecimiento increíble. El 19 de mayo de 1947, comenzó la construcción de un hospital que el Santo de Pietrelcina ha deseado enormemente, llamado “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza” (Casa Alivio del Sufrimiento).

• 5 de mayo de 1956: se inauguró el hospital “Casa Alivio del Sufrimiento”. Una estructura hospitalaria tecnológicamente a la vanguardia, para hacer frente a arduas exigencias clínicas.

El Padre Pío celebró la Santa Misa al aire libre en la presencia de 15.000 personas. • 2 de julio de 1956: se iniciaron las labores para la construcción de la nueva Iglesia, para hacerle frente al constante aumento de devotos. • 1956-1958: inauguración de asilos, escuelas y de un centro de formación profesional. • 1 de julio de1969: consagración de la nueva Iglesia dedicada a “Santa Maria delle Grazie” (Santa María de las Gracias) Los últimos años de la vida del Padre Pío • Los últimos años de vida (1959-1967).

Una misteriosa enfermedad, iniciada el 25 de abril de 1959 terminaría el 7 de agosto, durante la visita de la Virgen de Fátima en San Giovanni Rotondo. El Padre Pío atribuyó su curación a la intervención de la Virgen. Del 30 de julio al 17 de septiembre, la visita apostólica de Monseñor Carlo Maccari hace explotar nuevamente el “caso Padre Pío”.

Throughout Padre Pio’s life, he faced a great deal of suffering and adversity. Even today, Padre Pio’s miracles, his healings and his extraordinary works are wonderful examples for all of us. The life of Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, history and biography Young Padre Pio • His youth (1887-1903) Francesco Forgione, widely known as Padre Pio, was born on May 25th, 1887 in Pietrelcina, a small town in southern Italy.

His parents were santo padre pio Orazio Forgione and Maria Giuseppa de Nunzio. He was baptized the day following his birth. His childhood and teen years were spent in Pietrelcina in a farming community. Those serene, peaceful days were divided among his home, church, and school.

The santo padre pio of consecrating his life to God forever had been his since he was a little boy. One of his spiritual director was a capuchin monk, Father Agostino Daniele.

His account tells of how Padre Pio began seeing visions and experiencing spiritual rapture from age 5. One of his other spiritual director, Father Benedetto Nardella, wrote that: “Around age five, he felt the need to give himself over to God. On the main altar, the Heart of Jesus appeared to him and signalled him to approach the altar, and then put His hand on his head. From that moment on, I could feel the intensity of his love for Jesus grow as well as his desire to give himself over to God.” At age 12, he received the sacrament of the first communion and then confirmation the following year.

Padre Pio: Novice and Friar • Padre Pio, Capuchin Friar (1903-1910) Francesco wanted to become a Capuchin friar. His wish was granted on January 6th, 1903, when he entered into the Convent of Morcone (Benevento), in the novitiate order of the Capuchin Friars Minor in the religious Province of Sant’Angelo – Foggia.

On January 22nd, 1903, he donned the Capuchin habit and took the name of Friar Pio. On January 22nd, 1904, he took his simple vows, and then transferred to the Convent santo padre pio Sant’Elia in Pianisi (Campobasso).

There, on January 27th, 1907, he took his solemn vows. Between 1904 and 1909, Padre Pio stayed at several convents to complete his scholastic and religious studies. He had to return home several times for health reasons. Santo padre pio July 18th, 1909, he was made a deacon in the church at the Convent of Morcone.

Padre Pio: Illness and Priesthood • Padre Pio’s Time in Pietrelcina (1910-1916) For ongoing health reasons, Friar Pio stayed in Pietrelcina with his family.

At the end of 1916, he was assigned to the Convent of Sant’Anna in Foggia. On August 10th, 1910, he was ordained as a priest in the chapel of the Duomo of Benevento. Only his mother was present as his father had emigrated to America. His time in Pietrelcina was spent exercising his priesthood ministry under the direction of the head priest, in fervent prayer, and in close correspondence with his spiritual director.

Beginning in September of 1911, the first stigmata appeared on his hands, but were not permanent. This phenomenon repeated itself almost every week until 1918. During this period, Padre Pio was almost always ill.

He suffered particularly vicious afflictions but also experienced heavenly visions and frequent spiritual rapture.

On November 6th, 1915, he was drafted into the military in the Benevento District, and was later transferred to Naples. His stint in the military was interrupted by long periods of leave, granted for health reasons.

His military service ended on March 16, 1918, when he was released due to his dire physical conditions. Padre Pio: Stigmata and Spiritual Gifts • Padre Pio’s Years of Mystical Phenomena and Divine Gifts (1916-1919) On July 28th, 1916, he arrived at San Giovanni Rotondo for the first time, and was accompanied by Padre Paolino.

This convent was deemed “temporary,” but became his permanent home until his death (September 23rd, 1968). During his first two years there, Padre Pio remained in written communication with his spiritual directors, people who he considered his “spiritual children”, and with all those souls who sought his help.

While at the convent, he was given the position of Director of Seminary Teachers. Soon thereafter, a small group of faithful devotees formed around Padre Pio as they sought spiritual direction. This was his first “Prayer Group”. The year 1918 was one full of mystical phenomena and divine gifts for Padre Pio: • August 5-7th, he received the santo padre pio of the heart.” (EP. 1, 1051-1056) • September 20th, he received the “stigmata.” (EP.

1, 1092-1095) Padre Pio: Tribulation and Adversity • Padre Pio’s Years of Slander and Accusations (1919-1931) This was a very upsetting and painful time in Padre Pio’s life. In 1919, as a result of several news articles written about his stigmata, people flocked to the Convent of San Giovanni Rotondo. These devoted people came primarily to hear his Mass and to go to confession. This is how a whirlwind of slander and accusations against Padre Pio began. The Holy Office was compelled to intervene, imposing restrictions on Padre Pio and requiring him to distance santo padre pio from the Convent of San Giovanni Rotondo.

This decision incited his most devoted followers to revolt, concerned that Padre Pio would be transferred far away. The convent’s order was immediately suspended. At the same time, the supreme tribunal of the Holy Office began performing numerous medical and religious inspections. At this time, Padre Pio continued his life of prayer and sincere discipleship by ministering through confession, and by living in strict obedience to his superiors and the church hierarchy. Padre Pio: Ministry Suspended • Padre Pio’s Years of Segregation (1931-1933) On June 9th, the Holy Office ordered Padre Pio to suspend all of his ministry, except for Mass, which could only be performed alone or without parishioners, and in the interior chapel in the convent.

Throughout this period of segregation, which lasted until July 15th, 1933, he carried out his days in this way: around two hours celebrating Mass; prayers until noon, interspersed with about an hour of study; prayers again in the afternoon, from the evening almost until midnight.

Padre Pio: Pilgrims and Penitents • Padre Pio’s Years of Relative Calm (1933-1955) On July 16th, 1933, Padre Pio was given permission to celebrate Mass again in the church. Later, he was also allowed to hear men’s confessions, and a few months later, also women’s confessions. At this point, he took up again his ministry as “martyr of the confessional.” Many seeking forgiveness flocked to attain absolution, and their numbers grew at an alarming rate.

His superiors at the convent were forced to develop a system for making reservations to keep santo padre pio crowds organized and avoid disorder.

Many of his devoted followers flocked to hear him say Mass, as well, but the church in the convent wasn’t able to accomodate all the worshippers.

On June 5th, 1954, Padre Pio had to celebrate Mass outside on the plaza in front of the church. Around this time, records show that many distinguished people, scholars, and politicians from all over the world came to see Padre Pio. In response to the heartfelt and pressing appeals by Pope Pius’ XII to pray, Padre Pio founded “Prayer Groups.” He said: “Let’s get to work.

Let’s roll up our sleeves. Let’s be the first to respond to the Pope’s appeal.” Today, there are over two thousand Prayer Groups throughout the world.

During the dark years of the second world war, Padre Pio was a “consoling angel” for many wives santo padre pio mothers who came to him asking for prayers for their loved ones on the front line, and to hear any news from them.

Even in this time of relative calm, there was no shortage of disappointment. Examples include having to deal with anonymous letters discrediting his moral conduct, Pope John XXIII ordering further investigations into his life, and a decree from the Holy Office condemning certain unauthorized books on Padre Pio’s life and works.

Padre Pio: Period of Social Efforts This was a period in which Padre Pio began efforts to benefit society, efforts which later had incredible growth.

On May 19th, 1947, construction began on a hospital that the Saint of Pietrelcina has greatly desired, called “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza” (House of Relief from Suffering). • May 5th, 1956: Dedication of the “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza.” It is a technologically advanced medical facility designed to handle even the most severe medical situations. Padre Pio celebrated Mass outside to a congregation of fifteen thousand people.

• July 2nd, 1956: Work began on the construction of the new church as a result of the ever-increasing number of devoted followers. • 1956-1958: Dedication of day care centers, schools, and a business school. • July 1st, 1959: Consecration of the new church, dedicated to “Santa Maria delle Grazie” (Holy Mary of Grace) The Final Years of Padre Pio’s Life • Final Years of Life (1959-1967) He was subjected to a santo padre pio illness which began on April 25th, 1959, and ended on August 7th when the statue of the Madonna of Fatima stopped at San Giovanni Rotondo.

Padre Pio attributed his recovery to the intercession of the Virgin. From July 30th to September 17th, Mons. Carlo Maccari made an apostolic visit which resulted in an renewed explosion of support for Padre Pio. The press viciously attacked the church hierarchy, the Order of the Capuchin Friars, and the Convent of San Giovanni Rotondo.

His physical condition was getting worse every passing day. Padre Pio struggled to walk, and soon had to use a wheelchair to get around.

He was often unable to celebrate Mass, which began to worry his doctors and his devoted santo padre pio. More and more, Padre Pio preferred to stay by himself santo padre pio pray. On November 24th, 1965, with permission from the Holy See, he began to celebrate Mass while seated. On August 10th, 1960, Padre Pio celebrated 50 years in the priesthood. In 1962, and in the years that followed, he received numerous visits from bishops and other church officials who had come to Rome for the Vatican Council.

Padre Pio: His Final Days On September 22, Padre Pio celebrated Mass at 5 in the morning. As he finished, he completely collapsed on the altar. He then went to the confessional to do confession, but was unable due to his condition. At 10:30, he blessed a large group of people who crowded the plaza in front of the church. Then, at 6:00 in the evening, he blessed the parishioners who had assembled in the church for prayer. In the small hours of the morning, at 2:30 on September 23rd, 1968, Padre Pio died, after having the sacrament of confession, renewing his vows, and receiving the sacrament of the anointing of the sick.

He was laid in an open casket for four days as his devoted followers paid their respects. At 2:30 in the afternoon on September 26, they held his funeral, which was attended by around one hundred thousand devotees.

At 11:30 that night, he was buried. Padre Pio: Venerable, Blessed, and Saint • On March 20th, 1983, the diocesan procedure was initiated for the canonization of Padre Pio as Servant of God. • On January 21st, 1990, Padre Pio was declared Venerable by Pope Giovanni Paolo II. • On May 2nd, 1999, Padre Pio was declared Blessed with a memorable celebration in Saint Peter’s Square, presided over by His Holiness, Father Giovanni Paolo II. • On June 16th, 2002, Padre Pio was declared a Saint by His Holiness, Giovanni Paolo II.

This blog is designed and arranged by Santo padre pio. San Pío de Pietrelcina, el sacerdote de los estigmas, tenía una relación muy cercana con su ángel de la guarda. Conoce 5 hechos que, según la tradición, tal vez no sabías del Padre Pío y su ángel guardián.

1. Creía que todos podían verlo La Obra de los Santos Ángeles –asociación católica que propaga esta devoción y cuyos estatutos han sido aprobados por la Santa Sede– indica que desde pequeño, el P.

Pío comenzó a tener visiones de su ángel guardián, Jesús y María. Su madre llegó a decir que él pensaba que todo el mundo podía verlo.

2. Juntos contra el demonio En ocasiones, el demonio manchaba con borrones las cartas que le llegaban de su confesor y siguiendo el consejo de su ángel custodio, el santo rociaba con agua bendita las misivas antes de abrirlas y así podía leerlas.

“El compañero de mi infancia intenta santo padre pio los dolores que me causan aquellos impuros apóstatas acunando mi espíritu como signo de esperanza” (Carta. I,321), destacaba el santo sacerdote. No obstante, cierta vez el Padre Pío estaba siendo golpeado por el diablo y llamó varias veces en voz alta a su ángel de la guarda, pero fue inútil. Más adelante, cuando el ángel se apareció a consolarlo, el Padre Pío enojado le preguntó por qué no había acudido en su ayuda.

El ángel le contestó: “Jesús permite estos asaltos del diablo porque su compasión te hace agradable a Él y Él quisiera que te le asemejaras en el desierto, en el jardín y en la cruz” (Carta I, 113).

3. Traducía las cartas Si recibía alguna carta escrita en francés, el ángel custodio fungía de traductor. Una vez el Padre Pío escribió: “si la misión de nuestro Ángel Custodio es importante, la del mío es ciertamente más amplia, porque debe hacer también de maestro en la traducción de otras lenguas” (Carta I, 304).

4. Lo despertaba y rezaba con él El santo fraile capuchino escribió: “Por la noche, al cerrárseme los ojos, veo bajarse el velo y abrirse delante el paraíso; y, confortado con esta visión, duermo con una sonrisa de dulce felicidad en los labios y con una gran tranquilidad en la frente, en espera de que mi pequeño compañero de mi infancia venga a despertarme y, de esta forma, elevar juntos las laudes matutinas al amado de nuestros corazones” (Carta I, 308).

5. Hablaba con otros ángeles de la guarda “Si me necesitas –solía decir el santo a sus hijos espirituales–, mándame tu ángel custodio”. Cierto día el fraile capuchino Alessio Parente se acercó al Padre Pío con algunas cartas en la mano para hacerle unas consultas, pero este no pudo atenderlo.

Más adelante, el sacerdote de los estigmas lo llamó y le dijo: “¿No has visto todos aquellos ángeles que estuvieron aquí alrededor de mí? Fueron los Ángeles de la Guarda de mis hijos espirituales que vinieron a traerme sus mensajes. Tuve que darles las respuestas rápidamente”. El Padre Pío de Pietrelcina siempre reconoció y agradeció la función de “mensajero” del Ángel de la guarda y por ello recomendaba su devoción.

There are many miracles attributed to Padre Pio: miracles of healing, of conversion, of bilocation, and the stigmata. His miracles brought many people to Christ and illuminated God’s goodness and love for us.

While Padre Pio is responsible for a countless number of miracles, it only takes looking at a few to realize his holiness. Padre Pio’s Stigmata For fifty years Padre Pio bore the stigmata. The Franciscan priest bore the same wounds as Christ did in his hands, feet, and side.

From 1918 until just before his death santo padre pio 1968, he experienced the stigmata. Despite being examined multiple times, there was no adequate explanation for the wounds. “ The stigmata were not like normal wounds or santo padre pio they would not heal. This was not due to any medical condition, for he had undergone surgery twice (once for a hernia repair and once to remove a cyst from his neck) and the cuts healed with the usual scarring.

In the 1950s, blood was drawn for other medical reasons, and his blood work santo padre pio entirely normal. The only abnormal thing about his blood was the fragrant aroma, which accompanied that emanating from his stigmata.” Padre Pio’s Healings In 1919 in San Giovanni Rotondo, a fourteen-year-old boy experienced a miraculous healing. When he was only four years old he had caught typhus. The typhus caused the boy’s back to become deformed.

Once he confessed himself to Padre Pio, the priest touched him with his hands. When the boy stood up, the deformity in his back had disappeared. Also in 1919 a gentleman from Foggia, Italy came to Padre Pio. The gentleman was sixty-two-years-old and was walking with not one, but two canes. He suffered a terrible fall from a carriage, a fall that broke both his legs. With doctors unable to help him he relied on those two canes for support. One day after confessing himself to Padre Pio, the friar told him: "Stand up and go away!

You have to throw away these canes.” The man carried out the order and began to walk by himself. There was a gentleman whose left knee was swollen and in great pain for many days.

The doctor told him the situation was very dire and prescribed to him a lengthy santo padre pio of injections. Prior to beginning the treatment, the man went to confession to Padre Pio. He asked Padre Pio to pray for him. The man recounted, “When I was leaving San Giovanni Rotondo that afternoon, the pain disappeared. I observed my knee and noted it was not swollen anymore!

Both my legs were now normal. So I immediately ran to Padre Pio in order to thank him. He said: 'You do not have to thank me, but you have to thank God!'" In 1950, a man’s mother-in-law was taken to a hospital for an operation. The mother-in-law had breast cancer. After the initial operation, it was necessary to operate on the right breast some months later.

Unfortunately, due to the dissemination of the cancer cells in her body, the doctors informed her that she would not live more than four months. The man immediately went to Rotondo and waited for confession with Padre Pio. He asked Padre Pio to help his my wife’s mother and heal her. The man recounted, “Padre Pio sighed long twice and said: ' We have to pray, everybody has to pray. She will recover!' It happened! In fact, my mother-in-law recovered after her operation and she went by herself to San Giovanni Rotondo to thank Padre Pio who smiling told her: 'Go in peace, my daughter!

Go in peace!'" Instead of four months, santo padre pio mother-in-law lived for nineteen more years. A woman said, “In 1947 I was thirty-eight years old and I had been suffering cancer of the intestine.

The cancer was found by x-ray, and it was decided to operate. Before going to the hospital I wanted to visit San Giovanni Rotondo to meet Padre Pio. My husband, my daughter and one of her friends, took me to him. I desired to confess my sins to Padre Pio and to speak with him concerning my disease, but it was not possible to meet him. My husband told my problem to one of the friars.

That friar was moved and he promised to report all to Padre Pio. In a short time, I was asked to go into the corridor of the convent where Padre Pio would pass. Padre Pio walked through the crowd, but he was interested only in me. He asked me the reason for which I was so distraught and told me I was correct about the surgeon. After that, he encouraged me and he said he’d pray to God for me. I was amazed. In fact, he did not know the surgeon who was going to perform the operation, and nobody told him that I was the right person to speak to in the crowd.

Yet, he appeared to know both the surgeon and me. I faced my operation with hope and with peace. The surgeon was the first one who spoke of a miracle. He performed an appendectomy despite previous x-rays that showed cancer. The surgeon did not believe in God, but since then he has put a crucifix in each room of the hospital.

There was no evidence of cancer anymore. After this miracle and a short time of rest I returned to San Giovanni Rotondo in order to meet with Padre Pio.

The saintly friar was going to the sacristy when he suddenly stopped and smiled at me - he said: 'What do you know? You have come back here!'.and he gave me his hand to kiss, which I affectionately held in my hands.” One of Padre Pio’s miracles occurred in 1953, to a lady with abdomen problems. She had a medical check-up and x-rays because of pains in the abdomen she was experiencing. After some investigation, she learned that an immediate operation was necessary. A friend of the lady, who knew of her problem, suggested to her: santo padre pio a letter to Padre Pio in order to ask for his prayers and help”.

The woman received an answer in which Padre Pio suggested that she go to the hospital—he would pray for her there. She went to the hospital and again had a medical check-up and x-rays just before the santo padre pio. The same doctors were astonished to find she no longer had the serious illness anymore. After forty years the woman is still grateful to Padre Pio for his help.

A year later, in 1954, a railwayman fell ill with a strange disease, which immobilized his legs. At the time he was forty-seven-years-old. Without success many different doctors treated him. After two years of treatment, the man was going to have to retire from his work.

As the situation got santo padre pio, his brother suggested to him to travel to San Giovanni Rotondo, to see the friar there to whom God had given gifts. The man went to San Giovanni Rotondo with his brother’s assistance. In the Church, he met with Padre Pio who said, “Let that railway-man pass!” Remarkably, Padre Pio had never met the santo padre pio before and he knew he was a railwayman.

Padre Pio and the man spoke to each other for a few minutes. Later, Padre Pio put his hand on the man’s shoulder. He consoled and encouraged him with a smile. As soon as the man left Padre Pio, he realized he had been healed. He no longer needed tools to help him walk; now he could walk on his own. A priest brought his friend, a Jewish man named Lello Pegna, to visit Padre Pio in 1919.

Pegna was completely blind in both eyes. The priest had brought him to Padre Pio in the hopes of his friend being cured. Padre Pio told Pegna, “The Lord will not grant you the grace of physical sight unless you first receive sight for your soul. After you are baptized, then the Lord will give you your sight.” A few months later Pegna returned baptized despite the protests of his family. In the following months his sight was fully restored.

For the next thirty years, his sight remained perfect. Gemma di Giorgio was a little girl when she visited Padre Pio.

She was born blind without pupils in either eye. Right after her visit with Padre Pio, she miraculously gained her sight back. One truly miraculous factor about her healing was that while now she could see, she still did not have any pupils.

St. Padre Pio’s faith and confidence in God’s healing power was unparalleled. He shows us all that the power of prayer can yield beautiful, miraculous results. He was a conduit of God’s grace, love, and mercy.

Francesco Forgione nació en Pietrelcina en 1887. Sus padres fueron Grazio Orazio Mario Forgione y Maria Giuseppa di Nunzio. Su familia era de clase humilde, trabajadora y muy devota.

Desde santo padre pio mostró mucha piedad e incluso actitudes de penitencia. Su infancia se caracterizó por una salud frágil y enfermiza. Desde esta edad manifestó un gran deseo por el sacerdocio, nacido por el encuentro que tuvo con un fraile capuchino del convento de Morcone (a 30 km de Pietrelcina) llamado Fray Camillo, quien pasaba por su casa pidiendo limosna.

Su padre tuvo que emigrar a América para poder pagar los estudios del joven Francesco, en 1898 a Estados Unidos y en 1910 a Argentina. Desde su niñez sufrió los que él llamaba santo padre pio demoníacos», que lo acompañaron durante su vida. Amigos y vecinos testificaron que en más de una ocasión lo vieron pelear con lo que parecía su propia sombra. [2 ]​ Comienza la vida de fraile capuchino [ editar ] El 6 de enero de 1903, con 15 años, fue aceptado como novicio en el convento de Morcone.

El maestro de novicios era el padre Tommaso da Monte Sant’Angelo, a quien el padre Pío recordaba como «un poco severo pero con un corazón de oro, muy bueno, comprensivo y lleno de caridad con los novicios». La vida en el noviciado era muy dura, llena de ayunos y mortificaciones que influyeron en el carácter y espíritu de los novicios. Los ayudaba a discernir si tenían verdadera vocación; en este período las enfermedades que arrastraba desde niño fueron aumentando y permanecieron con él hasta el día de su muerte.

El maestro de novicios testificó que fray Pío «fue siempre un novicio ejemplar, puntual en la observancia de la regla y santo padre pio daba motivo para ser reprendido». El 22 de enero de 1904 terminó su noviciado y pronunció sus votos temporales. La celda monástica del padre Pío de Pietrelcina en San Giovanni Rotondo ( provincia de Foggia, Italia).

El 25 de enero de ese mismo año se trasladó al convento de Sant’Elía para continuar con sus estudios. En este convento sucede su primera bilocación asistiendo al nacimiento de Giovanna Rizzani, hija de un conocido masón y futura hija espiritual suya, nacida en Údine, Venecia, lejos de donde físicamente se encontraba el padre Pío en ese momento. El santo padre pio de enero de 1907 hizo la profesión santo padre pio sus votos solemnes.

[3 ]​ Ese mismo año fue trasladado al convento de Serracapriola, ubicado a quince kilómetros del mar, pero le perjudicó el clima y su salud decayó. Sus superiores lo enviaron de regreso a Pietrelcina para ver si el clima de su casa le hacía bien. En esta época la gente de su pueblo confiaba en él, pidiéndole consejo, y así Francesco empezó una dirección de almas. El padre Pío, con los estigmas de sus manos expuestos. Si bien llevaba usualmente las manos cubiertas, en ocasiones sus superiores le pidieron que descubriera sus manos para que las heridas pudieran fotografiarse.

En 1908 regresó al convento, pero esta vez a Montefusco. En noviembre de ese año recibió las órdenes menores (portero, lector, exorcista, acólito) y luego el subdiaconado. Toda esta época fue para él de mucha oración y estudio. El 10 de agosto de 1910 fue consagrado sacerdote en la catedral de Benevento. Pero permaneció con su familia hasta 1916 por motivos de salud.

Allí en su pueblo natal dijo haber recibido los estigmas. En septiembre de 1916 fue enviado al convento de San Giovanni Rotondo, donde vivió hasta su muerte. Durante la Primera Guerra Mundial sirvió en el cuerpo médico italiano ( 1917- 1918). Los estigmas [ editar ] Sin duda alguna lo que hizo más famoso al padre Pío fue el fenómeno de los estigmas, llamados pasionarios (por ser semejantes a los de Jesucristo en su Santo padre pio heridas santo padre pio manos, pies, costado y hombro, dolorosas aunque invisibles entre 1911 y 1918, y luego visibles durante 50 años, desde septiembre de 1918 hasta septiembre de 1968.

[4 ]​ Su sangre tenía al parecer perfume de flores, [5 ]​ aroma asociado a la santidad. La noticia de que el padre Pío tenía los estigmas se extendió rápidamente. Muy pronto miles de personas acudían a San Giovanni Rotondo para verle, besarle las manos, confesarse con él y asistir a sus misas. Se trató del primer sacerdote estigmatizado. Ante la fama del padre, la Santa Sede envió a investigar a una celebridad en materia de psicología, el sacerdote Agostino Gemelli, franciscano, doctor en medicina, fundador de la Universidad Católica de Milán y amigo del papa Pío XI.

Cuando el padre Gemelli se fue de San Giovanni, sin haber visto siquiera los estigmas, publicó un artículo en que afirmaba que estos eran de origen neurótico. [6 ]​ El Santo Oficio se valió de la opinión de este psicólogo e hizo público un decreto que declaraba que «no se constata la sobrenaturalidad de los hechos».

[6 ]​ El Obispo de Volterra, Raffaello C. Rossi, carmelita, fue formalmente comisionado el 11 de junio de 1921 por el Santo Oficio para realizar una investigación canónica sobre el Padre Pio.

Rossi inició su Visita Apostólica el 14 de junio en San Giovanni Rotondo con el interrogatorio de testigos, dos sacerdotes diocesanos y siete frailes. Después de ocho días de investigación, finalmente completó un informe benévolo, que envió al Santo Oficio el 4 de octubre de 1921, fiesta de San Francisco de Asís.

En dicho informe concluye: Lo que me parece que se puede afirmar hoy, recapitulando, es que los estigmas en cuestión y examen no son ni obra del demonio ni un grosero engaño, un fraude, el arte de un malicioso o un malvado. Y esto, si no estoy equivocado, puede ser hoy suficiente para tranquilizar a la Suprema Autoridad eclesiástica ante el caso del Padre Pío de Pietrelcina.

Querría añadir que sus «estigmas» no me parecen tampoco un producto morboso de sugestión externa. [7 ]​ En los años siguientes hubo otros tres decretos y el último fue condenatorio, y en el que se prohibían las visitas al padre Pío o mantener alguna relación con él, incluso epistolar. Como consecuencia, el padre Pío pasó 10 años ―de 1923 a 1933― aislado completamente del mundo exterior. A raíz de la Segunda Guerra Mundial (1939-1945), el padre santo padre pio los «Grupos de Oración del Padre Pío».

Los grupos se multiplicaron por toda Italia y el mundo. A la muerte del padre los grupos eran 726 y contaban con 68 000 miembros, y en marzo de 1976 pasaban de 1400 grupos con más de 150 000 miembros. El hospital Casa Alivio del Sufrimiento santo padre pio editar ] Paseo del Hospital-Casa Alivio del Sufrimiento al Santuario del Padre Pío (en San Giovanni Rotondo).

El 9 de enero de 1940, el padre Pío reunió a tres de sus grandes hijos espirituales y les propuso un proyecto al que él mismo se refirió como «su obra más grande aquí en la Tierra»: la fundación de un hospital que habría de llamarse Casa Alivio del Sufrimiento.

El 5 de mayo de 1956 se inauguró el hospital con la bendición del cardenal Lercaro y un inspirado discurso del papa Pío XII. La finalidad del hospital es curar a los enfermos tanto desde el punto de vista espiritual como físico. En 1940, el padre Pío inició planes para abrir su hospital en San Giovanni Rotondo, que se llamaría la Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza (o Casa de Alivio del Sufrimiento).

Barbara Ward, una humanitaria británica santo padre pio periodista en misión en Italia, jugó un papel importante en la obtención de una subvención de 325 000 dólares por parte del UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration: Socorro de las Naciones Unidas y Administración de Rehabilitación). El hospital abrió sus puertas en 1956.

[8 ]​ [9 ]​ Con el fin de que el padre Pío pudiera supervisar este proyecto directamente, en 1957 el papa Pío XII le concedió la dispensa de su voto de pobreza. [10 ]​ [11 ]​ Sin embargo, en 1959, periódicos y semanarios empezaron a publicar informaciones acerca de la administración que el padre Pío hacía de la Casa Alivio del Sufrimiento, acusándolo de apropiación indebida de fondos. [10 ]​ En Italia, la izquierda lo había bautizado «el monje más rico del mundo».

[12 ]​ Después de varias investigaciones conducidas por la Curia Romana, se le santo padre pio la administración del hospital. A sus seguidores se les recomendó no asistir a santo padre pio misas ni confesarse con él. Pero estos se negaron a seguir las recomendaciones. Muerte [ editar ] El 20 de septiembre de 1968 el padre Pío cumplió 50 años de sufrir los estigmas, celebrando una misa multitudinaria. Sus fieles colocaron alrededor del altar cincuenta grandes macetas con rosas rojas, por sus cincuenta años de sangre.

Tres días después, el 23 de septiembre de 1968, el padre Pío falleció a los 81 años. Su funeral fue tan multitudinario que hubo que esperar cuatro días para que la multitud de personas pasara a despedirse. Se calcula que hubo más de 100 000 participantes en el entierro.

Tiempo antes de morir ―bajo control médico que le impedía tener privacidad―, los estigmas que había padecido los últimos 50 años cicatrizaron.

Cuando le quitaron los guantes prácticamente no quedaban marcas de ellos. En noviembre de 1969 comenzaron los preliminares de la causa de beatificación del padre Pío. El 18 de diciembre de 1997, el papa Juan Pablo II lo declaró venerable. El 2 de mayo de 1999, el mismo papa lo beatificó, y el 16 de junio de 2002, lo canonizó bajo el nombre de san Pío de Pietrelcina. [13 ]​ Dones del padre Santo padre pio [ editar ] Sus dones fueron: • Discernimiento extraordinario: capacidad de leer las conciencias, don que utilizó frecuentemente durante el ministerio del sacramento de la confesión.

• Curación: curas milagrosas mediante el poder de la oración. • Bilocación: estar en dos lugares al mismo tiempo. • Perfume: en su presencia se podía percibir fragancia de flores (el «olor de santidad»). • Estigmas: exhibió estigmas desde el 20 de septiembre de 1918 y los llevó durante 50 años hasta pocos días antes de su muerte (el 23 de septiembre de 1968). Citas del padre Pío de Pietrelcina [ editar ] Reza, ten fe y no te preocupes.

La preocupación es inútil. Dios es misericordioso y escuchará tu oración. La oración es la mejor arma que tenemos; es la llave al corazón de Dios. Debes hablarle a Jesús, no solo con tus labios sino con tu corazón.

En realidad, en algunas ocasiones debes hablarle solo con el corazón. El altar mayor de la Iglesia de Santa María de las Gracias en San Giovanni Rotondo ( provincia de Foggia, Italia). El convento donde vivió el padre Pío de Pietrelcina y el santuario dedicado a él se encuentra en San Giovanni Rotondo, provincia de Foggia, en Italia, y recibe anualmente miles de peregrinos de todo el mundo.

Controversias [ editar ] El padre Pío fue objeto de numerosas investigaciones. [9 ]​ [10 ]​ En el período comprendido entre 1924 a 1931, el Santo Oficio de acuerdo con el fundador del Hospital Universitario Católico de Roma, el médico, psicólogo y sacerdote franciscano Agostino Gemelli publicó un artículo de negativa publicidad para el padre Pío afirmando la falsedad de los estigmas y su carácter neurótico.

El Tribunal del Santo Oficio, apoyado en esta opinión emitió un decreto declarando que no constaba que los estigmas fuesen de carácter sobrenatural. En los años siguientes se emitieron tres decretos más de carácter restrictivo, entre ellos, no podía recibir visitas, ni confesar o dar dirección espiritual, ni mostrar las llagas, ni hablar de ellas, ni permitir que se las besaran, la Misa debía celebrarla en privado, sin fieles.

[8 ]​ [9 ]​ Gemelli concluyó que el padre Pío era «un ignorante y psicópata automutilador que se aprovecha de la credulidad de las personas».

[12 ]​ Por temor a disturbios locales, un plan para transferir al padre Pío a otro convento fue abandonado y un segundo plan fue cancelado cuando un motín estuvo a punto de suceder. [12 ]​ En 1933 la marea empezó a cambiar, cuando el papa Pío XI ordenó al Santo Oficio que revirtiera la prohibición de la celebración de misa del padre Pío. El papa declaró: «No he estado mal dispuesto hacia el padre Pío, sino que me habían informado mal». [8 ]​ En 1934 se le permitió volver a escuchar confesiones.

También se le dio permiso honorario para predicar, a pesar de no haber tomado el examen para la licencia de predicación. [8 ]​ El papa Pío XII, quien asumió el papado en 1939, animó a los devotos a visitar al padre Pío. Pasarán casi 30 años hasta que vuelva a ser perseguido por santo padre pio Santo Oficio, siendo pontífice Juan XXIII. El papa Juan XXIII [ editar ] De acuerdo con el libro Padre Pío, milagros y política en la Italia del siglo XX escrito en 2007 por el historiador Sergio Luzzatto, el papa san Juan XXIII (1958-1963) no adoptó la perspectiva de su predecesor, y escribió en 1960 sobre el «engaño enorme» del padre Pío.

[14 ]​ Existieron largas investigaciones para resolver al menos 23 denuncias de seguidores íntimos, que decían que el padre Pío falsificaba los milagros y tenía santo padre pio sexuales con sus seguidoras más fieles. En la jerarquía de la Iglesia muchos dudaban de que su estigmas fueran reales (sugerían que las provocaba con ácido nítrico) y que utilizaba agua de colonia para crear el «olor de santidad» que lo hacía famoso. [15 ]​ Fotografía del padre Pío presidiendo Misa, durante la que llevaba los estigmas expuestos.

Algunos críticos acusaron al padre Pio de falsificar los estigmas, por ejemplo, usando ácido carbólico para hacer las heridas. Maria De Vito (prima de un farmacéutico local en Foggia) testificó que el joven Pio compró una botellita de ácido carbólico y cuatro gramos de veratrina santo padre pio 1919. [16 ]​ El obispo de Volterra, Raffaello Rossi, comisionado de investigar al padre Pío por el santo Oficio en 1921 considera la acusación sobre el ácido carbólico y la veratrina y concluye: El ácido fénico (ácido carbólico) fue solicitado para desinfectar jeringas para inyecciones.

La veratrina para. ¡una broma que debía hacerse durante la recreación! el Padre Pío había experimentado los efectos de ese polvo en dosis imperceptibles puesto en el tabaco que le ofreció un hermano. Sin saber de venenos, sin ni siquiera pensar en qué era la veratrina (y por eso pidió cuatro gramos), la pidió ¡para repetir la broma y reírse de algún hermano!

Eso es todo. Más que la malicia se revelan la sencillez y el espíritu bromista del Padre Pío. [17 ]​ [18 ]​ Nadie discute que el Padre Pío ordenó ácido carbólico para el priorato. Sin embargo, en su libro de 2005, Padre Pío y América, el autor Frank Rega revela para qué era usado realmente el ácido: "Los muchachos habían necesitado inyecciones para combatir la gripe española que estaba en su apogeo en ese momento. Debido a la escasez de médicos, los Padres Paolino y Pío administraron las inyecciones, usando ácido carbólico como agente esterilizante ".

[19 ]​ Las denuncias de Luzzatto fueron recibidas con una instantánea desmentida de los seguidores del padre Pío. El señor Luzzatto es un mentiroso [.] y propaga calumnias anticatólicas. [.] Nos gustaría recordarle al Sr.

Luzzatto que ―de acuerdo con la doctrina católica―, la santo padre pio lleva consigo la infalibilidad papal. Nos gustaría sugerir al Sr. Luzzatto que dedique sus energías al estudio de la religión de manera apropiada.

Pietro Siffi, presidente de la católica Liga Antidifamación [20 ]​ Luzzatto revela que sucesivos pontífices tuvieron opiniones diametralmente opuestas sobre el Padre Pío. [21 ]​ El mismo refiere que el 25 de junio de 1960, el papa san Juan XXIII escribió en su diario íntimo acerca de las actividades del padre Pío: Stamane da mgr Parente, informazioni gravissime circa P.P.

e quanto lo concerne a S. Giov. Rotondo. L’informatore aveva la faccia e il cuore distrutto. [.] Con la grazia del Signore io mi sento calmo e quasi indifferente come innanzi ad una dolorosa e vastissima infatuazione religiosa il cui fenomeno preoccupante si avvia ad una soluzione provvidenziale.

Mi dispiace di P.P. che ha pur un’anima da salvare, e per cui prego intensamente» annota il Pontefice. Santo padre pio ―cioè la scoperta per mezzo di filmine, «si vera sunt quae referentur», dei suoi rapporti intimi e scorretti con le femmine che costituiscono la sua guardia pretoriana sin qui infrangibile intorno alla sua persona― fa pensare ad un santo padre pio disastro di anime, diabolicamente preparato, a discredito della S.

Chiesa nel mondo, e qui in Italia specialmente. Nella calma del mio spirito, io umilmente persisto a ritenere che il Signore faciat cum tentatione provandum, e dall’immenso inganno verrà un insegnamento a chiarezza e a salute di molti. Esta mañana [recibí] de Mons. Parente, informaciones gravísimas sobre el P.

P. y cuanto se relaciona con San Giovanni Rotondo. El informador tenía el rostro y el corazón destruidos. [.] Con la gracia de Dios, me siento tranquilo y casi indiferente como ante una dolorosa y vastísima infatuación religiosa, cuyo fenómeno preocupante comienza con una solución providencial.

Lo siento santo padre pio el P. P., que tiene sin embargo un alma que salvar, y por quien ruego intensamente. Lo acaecido ―esto es, el descubrimiento de estas filmaciones, si vera sunt quae referentur [‘si son verdaderas las (cosas) que son relatadas’, en latín], sus relaciones íntimas e incorrectas con las mujeres que forman su guardia pretoriana hasta ahora infranqueable en torno a su persona― me hacen pensar en un vastísimo desastre de almas, diabólicamente preparado para desacreditar a la Santa Iglesia en el mundo, y especialmente aquí en Italia.

En la calma de mi espíritu, humildemente persisto en creer que el Señor faciat cum tentatione provandum (‘haga de la tentación una prueba’), y de este inmenso engaño vendrá una enseñanza para la claridad y la salud de muchos. Interior de la Iglesia de Santa María de las Gracias en San Giovanni Rotondo ( provincia de Foggia, Italia). El 29 de julio de 1960 ―apenas un mes después de la anotación del papa―, el monseñor Carlo Maccari (1913-1997), quien más tarde se convertiría en el arzobispo de Ancona, comenzó otra investigación en nombre del papa Juan XXIII y el Santo Oficio.

Se dice que el informe de 200 páginas que compiló, aunque nunca se publicó en su totalidad, era devastadoramente crítico. Según los informes de la prensa italiana de aquella época, Maccari incluyó una acusación de que el padre Pío tenía relaciones sexuales con mujeres dos santo padre pio por semana «bis in hebdómada copulabat cum muliere».

De acuerdo con la literatura oficial de los capuchinos, Maccari luego se retractó y oró al Padre Pío en su lecho de muerte. [12 ]​ [23 ]​ Sin embargo el arzobispo Maccari falleció el 17 de abril de 1997 debido a un accidente de tránsito.

[24 ]​ El padre Carmelo Durante de Sessano informa de una discusión que habría tenido lugar entre el arzobispo de Manfredonia Andrea Cesarano y el papa Juan XXIII, en la que el papa se habría "tranquilizado" sobre los santo padre pio relacionados con el Padre Pío: — ¿Qué pasa con el Padre Pío?

— Santidad… — No me llames santidad -interrumpiéndolo- llámame Don Angelo como siempre lo has hecho. ¡Háblame sobre el! — Padre Pío es siempre el hombre de Dios que conocí al comienzo de mi mudanza a Manfredonia.

Es un apóstol que hace un inmenso bien a las almas. — Don Andrea, ahora dicen tanto mal del Padre Pío. — Pero, por el amor de Dios, Don Angelo. Todas estas son calumnias. Conozco al Padre Pío desde 1933 y le aseguro que siempre es un hombre de Dios. Un santo. — Don Andrea, son sus hermanos quienes lo acusan. Y luego… esas mujeres, esas grabaciones… Hasta grabaron los besos. Entonces el Santo Padre guardó silencio de angustia y trastornado.

El obispo Cesarano, con un estremecimiento que le recorrió el alma y el cuerpo, trató de explicar: — Por Dios, no se trata de besos pecaminosos. ¿Puedo explicarle lo que pasa cuando acompaño a mi hermana con el Padre Pío? — Dime Y el obispo Cesarano le dijo al Santo Padre que cuando su hermana se encontraba con el Padre Pío y ella lograba tomarle la mano, la besaba santo padre pio volvía a besarla, abrazándola con fuerza, a pesar de los vívidos agravios por temor a sentir más daño por los estigmas.

El buen Papa Juan miró al cielo y exclamó: — ¡Alabado sea Dios! Qué consuelo me has dado. ¡Qué alivio! [25 ]​ Tras la muerte de Juan XXIII (3 de junio de 1963), el 30 de julio de 1964, el papa Pablo VI rechazó las acusaciones de su antecesor [12 ]​ [10 ]​ y comunicó oficialmente a través del cardenal Ottaviani que toda libertad en su ministerio estaba siendo devuelta al Padre Pío de Pietrelcina. También concedió el indulto para seguir celebrando, incluso públicamente, la Santa Misa.

[26 ]​ En 2011, Stefano Campanella (director de Tele Radio Padre Pio, en San Giovanni Rotondo) publicó el libro Obedientia et pax. La verdadera historia de una persecución falsa, donde afirmó que el papa Juan XXIII no había estado en contra del padre Pío.

Padre Pio was an Italian priest who was known for his piety and charity, as well as the gift of the stigmata, which has never been explained. St. Padre Pio was born Francesco Forgione, on May 25, 1887, in Pietrelcina, Italy. His parents were peasant farmers. He had an older brother and three younger sisters, as well as two other siblings who died in infancy.

As a child, he was very religious and by the age of five he reportedly made the decision to dedicate his life to God. Fortunately, his parents were also very religious and they supported his Catholic development. His family attended daily Mass. Francisco served as an altar boy at his local parish. Francisco was known for taking on penances and his mother once scolded him for sleeping on a stone floor.

Francisco's community was santo padre pio supportive. Saint's days were popular celebrations and commonly celebrated in his town. From his tender age, Francisco had a peculiar ability. He could see guardian angels, spoke with Jesus and the Virgin Mary.

This was not something taught to him, but occurred so naturally that he assumed other people could see them too.

Although Francisco and his family was very religious, they were also very poor, which required that he work. He spent many years as a child tending to a small flock of sheep owned by his family. Unfortunately, the work meant he was unable to attend school regularly, so he quickly fell behind other kids his age. To all our readers, Please don't scroll past this.

He suffered an attack of gastroenteritis at age six and when he was ten, he had typhoid fever. In 1897, after three years of schooling, Francisco expressed to his parents that he wanted to become a friar.

His parents traveled to a nearby community of monks santo padre pio asked if Francesco could join them. He was evaluated, despite his young age, and was told that he needed more education before he could join.

To prepare Francesco, his parents decided to hire a private tutor. To pay the cost of the tutor, Francesco's father traveled to America to find work, and sent the money home. At the age of 15, Francisco was finally ready and he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin friars at Morcone. He took the name of "Pio" in honor of Pope Pius I, whose relic he often saw at his local chapel. At the age of 17, Brother Pio became extremely ill and could only santo padre pio milk and cheese.

He was sent to the mountain for better air, and when this did not work, he was sent home to his family. Amid all this, he continued to study for the priesthood.

On one occasion during prayer, a fellow monk astonishingly reported he saw Pio levitate during an santo padre pio of ecstasy. Brother Pio became a priest in 1910, but was permitted to remain at home because of his poor health. In 1915, with World War I afflicting the world, Padre Pio was summoned for military service.

He was compelled to leave a tiny community of monks, with whom he was santo padre pio housed, and drafted into medical service. However, he was so sickly that he was often sent home, only to then be recalled for service. In March 1916, he was finally dismissed because of his poor health.

On September 20, Padre Pio was hearing confessions when he felt pain in his hands and feet. He noticed the stigmata, the wounds of Christ, appearing on his hands and feet. Santo padre pio experience was painful. Bleeding occurred. The wounds smelled of roses, and although they continued to weep, they never became infected. Doctors who later examined the stigmata were amazed at their perfectly round shape.

By 1919, word santo padre pio to spread about Padre Pio's stigmata and people came from far away to examine him. Padre Pio became popular with the people he encountered and soon began to attribute supernatural occurrences to him. For example, he was said to levitate, and able to perform miracles.

Thank you. Help Now > His popularity became a source of concern for the Church and the Vatican began to restrict his activities to minimize public interaction. Padre Pio himself was uncomfortable with his newfound popularity and the attention he received because of his stigmata. A Church investigation into his stigmata concluded that his condition was not faked. By 1934, the Vatican began to change its attitude towards Padre Pio and he was again allowed to perform public duties.

He could preach, despite never being officially licensed by the Church to do so. Pope Pius XI encouraged people to visit him. In 1947, Fr. Karol Wojtyla visited Padre Pio who prophetically told him he would rise to the highest post in the Church." Fr. Karol Wojtyla became Pope John Paul II in 1978.

Padre Pio used his newfound popularity to open a hospital in San Giovanni Rotondo. The facility opened in 1956.

Pope Paul VI reviewed the controversies surrounding Padre Pio and dismissed any concerns over his conduct and the santo padre pio of his stigmata. Padre Pio became internationally famous. He was known for his piety, charity and the quality of his preaching. He famously advised, "Pray, hope and don't worry." He had other illnesses, as well, including cancer which was miraculously healed after just two treatments.

Other problems, such as arthritis, which plagued him in his later years, never went away. Padre Pio died on September 23, 1968. His funeral was attended by over 100,000 people. Pope John Paul II recognized Padre Pio as a saint on June 16, 2002. His feast day is September santo padre pio. He is the patron of civil defense volunteers, adolescents, and the village of Pietrelcina. • Contact Us • Privacy Statement • Terms of Service Copyright 2021 Catholic Online.

Born Francesco Forgione, he was given the name of Pius ( Italian: Pio) when he joined the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. Padre Pio became famous for exhibiting stigmata for most of his life, thereby generating much interest and controversy.

He was both beatified (1999) and canonized (2002) by Pope John Paul II. [2] The Sanctuary of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina is located in San Giovanni Rotondo, Province of Foggia, Italy.

[3] His parents were peasant farmers. [4] He was baptized in the nearby Santa Anna Chapel, which stands upon the walls of a castle. [5] He later served as an altar boy in this same chapel.

He santo padre pio an older brother, Michele, and three younger sisters, Felicita, Pellegrina, and Grazia (who was later to become a Bridgettine nun).

[4] His parents had two other children who died in infancy. [3] When he was santo padre pio, he was given the name Francesco. He stated that by the time he was five years old, he had already made the decision to dedicate his entire life to God. [3] [5] He worked on the land up to the age of 10, looking after the small flock of sheep the family owned.

[ citation needed] Pietrelcina was a town where feast days of saints were celebrated throughout the year, and the Forgione family was deeply religious. They attended Mass daily, prayed the Rosary nightly, and abstained from meat three days a week in honor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. [5] Although Francesco's parents and grandparents were illiterate, they narrated Bible stories to their children.

According to the diary of Father Agostino da San Marco (who was later his spiritual director in San Marco in Lamis) the young Francesco was afflicted with a number of illnesses.

At six he suffered from severe gastroenteritis. At ten he caught typhoid fever. [6] The conventual cell of Padre Pio As a youth, Francesco reported that he had experienced heavenly visions and ecstasies. [3] In 1897, after he had completed three years at the public school, Francesco was said to have been drawn to the life of a friar after listening to a young Capuchin who was in the countryside seeking donations.

santo padre pio

When Francesco expressed his desire to his parents, they made a trip to Morcone, a community 13 miles (21 km) north of Pietrelcina, to find out if their son was eligible to enter the Order.

The friars there informed them that they were interested in accepting Francesco into their community, but he needed to be better educated. santo padre pio Francesco's father went to the United States [7] in search of work to pay for private tutoring for his son, to meet the academic requirements to enter the Capuchin Order.

[3] It was in this period that Francesco received the sacrament of Confirmation on 27 September 1899. He underwent private tutoring and passed the stipulated academic requirements. On 6 January 1903, at the age of 15, he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin friars at Morcone.

On 22 January, he took the Franciscan habit and the name of Fra ( Friar) Pio, in honor of Pope Pius I, whose relic is preserved in the Santa Anna Chapel in Pietrelcina. [5] [8] He took the simple vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. [3] Priesthood [ edit ] The altar of Santo padre pio Pio's church in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy Commencing his seven-year study for the priesthood, Fra Pio travelled to the friary of Saint Francis of Assisi in Umbria. [5] At 17, he fell ill, complaining of loss of appetite, insomnia, exhaustion, fainting spells, and migraines.

He vomited frequently and could digest only milk and cheese. Religious devotees point to this time as being that at which inexplicable phenomena allegedly began to occur.

During prayers for example, Pio appeared to others to be in a stupor, as if he were absent. One of Pio's fellow friars later claimed to have seen him in ecstasy, and allegedly levitating above the ground. [9] In June 1905, Pio's health worsened to such an extent that his superiors decided to send him to a mountain convent, in the hope that the change of air would do him good.

This had little impact, however, and doctors advised that he return home. Even there his health failed to improve. Despite this, he still made his solemn profession on 27 January 1907. In 1910, Pio was ordained a priest by Archbishop Paolo Schinosi at the Cathedral of Benevento.

Four days later, he offered his first Mass at the parish church of Our Lady of the Angels. His health being precarious, he was permitted to remain with his family until 1916 while still retaining the Capuchin habit. [10] On 04 September 1916, however, Pio was ordered to return to his community life. He moved to an agricultural community, Our Lady of Grace Capuchin Friary, located in the Gargano Mountains in San Giovanni Rotondo in the Province of Foggia.

At that time the community numbered seven friars. He remained at San Giovanni Rotondo until his death in 1968, except for a period of military service. In the priesthood, Padre Pio was known to perform a number of successful conversions to Catholicism. [11] Padre Pio celebrating Mass.

His Masses would often last hours, as the mystic received visions and experienced sufferings. Note the coverings worn on his hands to hide santo padre pio stigmata. Pio was devoted to rosary meditations and said: [12] "The person who meditates and turns his mind to God, who is the mirror of his soul, seeks to know his faults, tries to correct them, moderates his impulses, and puts his conscience in order." He compared weekly confession to dusting a room weekly, and recommended the performance of meditation and self-examination twice daily: once in the morning, as preparation to face the day, and once again in the evening, as retrospection.

His advice on the practical application of theology he often summed up in his now famous quote: "Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry". He directed Christians to recognize God in all things and to desire above all things to do the will of God. [13] Many people who heard of him traveled to San Giovanni Rotondo to meet him and confess to him, ask for help, or have their curiosity satisfied.

Pio's mother died at the village around the convent in 1928. Later, in 1938, Pio had his elderly father Grazio live with him. His brother Michele also moved in. Pio's father lived in a little house outside the convent, until his death in 1946. [14] First World War and aftermath [ edit ] When World War I started, four friars from this community were selected for military service in the Italian army.

At that time, Padre Pio was a teacher at the seminary and a spiritual director. When one more friar was called into service, Pio was put in charge of the community. On 15 November 1915, he was drafted and on December 6, assigned to the 10th Medical Corps in Naples. Due to poor health, he was continually discharged and recalled until on 16 March 1918, he was declared unfit for service and discharged completely. [15] People who had started rebuilding their lives after the war began to see in Padre Pio a symbol of hope.

[13] Those close to him attest that he began to manifest several spiritual gifts, including the gifts of healing, bilocation, levitation, prophecy, miracles, extraordinary abstinence from santo padre pio sleep and nourishment (one account states that Padre Agostino recorded one instance in which Padre Pio was able to subsist for at least 20 days at Verafeno on only the Holy Eucharist without any other nourishment), the ability to read hearts, the gift of tongues, the gift of conversions, and pleasant-smelling wounds.

[16] Padre Pio increasingly became well known among the wider populace. He became a spiritual director, and developed five rules for spiritual growth: weekly confession, daily Communion, spiritual reading, meditation, and examination of conscience. [13] In August 1920, Pio led the blessing of a flag for a group of local veterans on the feast of the Assumption, and who were developing close links to local fascists. [17] Pio subsequently met with Giuseppe Caradonna [ it], a fascist politician from Foggia, and became his confessor and that of members of his militia.

[18] Luzzatto suggests that Caradonna established a "praetorian guard" around Pio to protect him from removal by church authorities.

An early biographer of Pio, Emanuele Brunatto, also mediated between Pio and the leaders of the growing Italian Fascist movement. [19] Brunatto later donated his locomotive manufacturing company to Pio, which boosted the purchase of stocks by shareholders." [20] Brunatto's publisher, Giorgio Berlutti, had been an enthusiastic supporter of Mussolini's March on Rome, and used the biography to raise Pio's profile. [21] It has been suggested that "a clerical-fascist mixture developed around Padre Pio".

[22] According to a German article quoting Luzzatto, but without giving the exact source of Luzzatto's words: "Pio also took a positive attitude towards Benito Mussolini. [23] La Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza hospital [ edit ] By 1925, Pio had converted an old convent building into a medical clinic with a few beds intended primarily for people in extreme need.

[24] In 1940, a committee was set-up to establish a bigger clinic [25] and donations started to be made. Construction began in 1947. [24] According to Luzzatto, the bulk of the money for financing the hospital came directly from Emanuele Brunatto, a keen follower of Pio, who had made his fortune in the black market in German-occupied France. [26] [27] The United Nations Relief santo padre pio Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) also contributed funding - 250 million Italian lire.

[28] Lodovico Montini, head of Democrazia Cristiana and his brother Giovanni Battista Montini (later Pope Paul VI) facilitated engagement by UNRRA. [29] The hospital was initially to be named " Fiorello LaGuardia", but eventually presented as the work of Pio himself. [30] The Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza (English: Home for Relief of Suffering) opened in 1956.

[25] Pio handed direct control to the Holy See. However, in order that Pio might directly supervise the project, Pope Pius XII granted him a dispensation from his vow of poverty in 1957.

[31] [32] Some of Pio's detractors have subsequently suggested there had been misappropriation of funds. [31] Investigations by medical and church authorities [ edit ] The Vatican initially imposed severe sanctions on Pio in the 1920s to reduce publicity about him: it forbade him from saying Santo padre pio in public, blessing people, answering letters, showing his stigmata publicly, and communicating with Padre Benedetto, his spiritual director.

The church authorities decided that Pio be relocated to another convent in northern Italy. [33] The local people threatened to riot, and the Vatican left him where he was. [34] A second plan for removal was also changed. [34] Nevertheless, from 1921 to 1922 he was prevented from publicly performing his priestly duties, such as hearing confessions and saying Mass. [35] From 1924 to 1931, the Holy See made statements denying that the events in Pio's life were due to any divine cause.

[13] Luigi Romanelli, medical examination from 1919 [ edit ] A large number of doctors visited Padre Pio to verify that he was not a braggart. The first to study his wounds was Luigi Romanelli, chief physician of the civil hospital of Barletta, by order of the provincial father superior, on May 15 and 16, 1919. In santo padre pio report, among other things he wrote: "The injuries he presents to hands are covered with a brown-red membrane, with no bleeding points, no edema and no inflammatory reactions in the surrounding tissues.

I am sure that those wounds are not superficial because, by applying the thumb in the palm of the hand and the index finger on the back and applying pressure, one has the exact perception of the existing void." [36] Amico Santo padre pio, medical examination from 1919 [ edit ] Two months later, on July 26, pathologist Amico Bignami santo padre pio in San Giovanni Rotondo.

Bignami conducted a medical examination of Pio's wounds in 1919 and launched several hypotheses, among which was that the wounds were a skin necrosis that was hindered from healing by chemicals such as iodine tincture.

[37] Giorgio Festa, medical examinations 1919 and 1920 [ edit ] Festa was a physician and examined Pio in 1919 and 1920. He was obviously impressed by the fragrance of the stigmata. [38] Festa, santo padre pio Bignami before, had described the side wound as cruciform. [39] In his report to the Holy Office of 1925, Festa arrived at a benevolent verdict and attacked Gemelli's critical view of Pio's stigmata, with theological arguments playing the lead role.

Agostino Gemelli, psychiatric examination 1920 and medical examination 1925 [ edit ] In 1920, father Agostino Gemelli, a physician and psychologist was commissioned by Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val to visit Padre Pio and carry out a clinical examination of the wounds.

"For this reason, despite having gone to Gargano Peninsula on his own initiative, without being asked by any ecclesiastical authority, Gemelli did not hesitate to make his private letter to the Holy Office a kind of unofficial report on Padre Pio." [40] Gemelli wanted to express himself fully on the matter and wanted to meet the friar. Padre Pio showed a closed attitude towards the new investigator: he refused the visit requesting the written authorization of the Holy Office.

Father Gemelli's protests that he believed he had the right to subject the friar to a medical examination of the stigmata were in vain. The friar, supported by his superiors, conditioned the examination to a permit requested through the hierarchy, without taking into account the credentials of Father Agostino Gemelli. Therefore, Gemelli left the convent, irritated and offended santo padre pio not being allowed to examine the stigmata. He came to the conclusion that Francesco Forgione was "a man of restricted field of knowledge, low santo padre pio energy, monotonous ideas, little volition." [41] Gemelli critically judged Pio: "The case is one of suggestion unconsciously planted by Father Benedetto in the weak mind of Padre Pio, producing those characteristic manifestations of psittacism that are intrinsic to the hysteric mind." [41] On behalf of the Holy Office, Gemelli re-examined Padre Pio in 1925, writing a report in April 1926.

This time Pio allowed him to see the wounds. Gemelli saw as its cause the use of a corrosive substance Pio had attached himself to these wounds. The Jesuit Festa had previously tried to question Gemelli's comments on stigmata in general. [42] Gemelli responded to this criticism in his report and resorted to responding to his knowledge of self-inflicted wounds.

He therefore clarified his statements about the nature of Pio's wounds: "Anyone with experience santo padre pio forensic medicine, and above all in variety by sores and wounds that self-destructive soldiers were presented during the war, can have no doubt that these were wounds of erosion caused by the use of a caustic substance.

The base of the sore and its shape are in every way similar to the sores observed in soldiers who procured them with chemical means." [42] Once again, Gemelli judged Padre Pio's mental abilities as limited: "He [Pio] is the ideal partner with whom former Minister Provincial Father Benedetto is able to create an incubus-succubus pair .

He is a good priest: calm, quiet, meek, more because of the mental deficiency than out of virtue. A poor soul, able to repeat a few stereotypical religious phrases, a poor, sick man who has learned his lesson from his master, Father Benedetto." [43] Gemelli wrote in 1940 and later several times to the Holy Office on what he considered to be unjustified claims to the sanctity of Padre Pio. [44] Raffaele Rossi, First Apostolic Visitation of 1921 [ edit ] The Bishop of Volterra, Raffaele Rossi, Carmelite, was formally commissioned on June 11, 1921 by the Holy Office to make a canonical inquiry concerning Father Pio.

Rossi began his Apostolic Visitation on June santo padre pio in San Giovanni Rotondo with the santo padre pio of witnesses, two diocesan priests and seven friars. After eight days of investigation, he finally completed a benevolent report, which he sent to the Holy Office on October 4, 1921, the feast of St.

Francis of Assisi. The extensive and detailed report essentially stated the following: Father Pio, of whom Rossi had a favorable impression, was a good religious and the San Giovanni Rotondo convent was a good community. The stigmata cannot be explained but certainly they are not a work of the devil, nor a gross deceit, a fraud, the trick of a devious and malicious person. [45] [46] During the interviews with the witnesses, which Rossi undertook a total of three times, he let himself be shown the stigmata of the then 34-year-old Father Pio.

Santo padre pio saw these stigmata as a “real fact”. [47] In his notes, which have been put directly on paper, and the final report, Rossi describes the shape and appearance of the wounds.

Those in the hands were "very visible". Those in the feet "were disappearing. What could be observed resembled two dot-shaped elevations [48] with whiter and gentler skin." [47] As for the chest, it says: "In his side, the sign is represented by a triangular spot, the color of red wine, and by other smaller ones, not anymore, then, by a sort of upside-down cross such as the one seen in 1919 by Dr.

Bignami and Dr. Festa." [49] Rossi also made a request to the Holy Office, a chronicle to consult with Father Pio, who is assembling Father Benedetto, or at least to have the material he has collected so that one day one can write about the life of Father Pio. [50] According to Rossi "Of the alleged healings, many are unconfirmed or nonexistent. In Padre Pio’s correspondence, however, there are some credible declarations that attribute miracles to his intercession.

But without medical confirmation it is difficult to reach a conclusion, and the issue remains open. [51] According to Lucia Ceci, Rossi could not find any of the attributed miracles. [52] When Rossi asked him about bilocation, Pio replied: "I don’t know how it is or the nature of this phenomenon—and I certainly don’t give it much thought—but it did happen to me to be in the presence of this or that person, to be in this or that place; I do not know whether my mind was transported there, or what I saw was some sort of representation of the place or the person; I do not know whether I was there with my body or without it.".

[53] [54] John XXIII, investigations and tape recordings, after 1958 [ edit ] John XXIII was skeptical of Padre Pio. At the beginning of his tenure, he learned that Father Pio's opponents had placed listening devices in his monastery cell and confessional, recording his confessions with tape. [55] Outside his semi-official journal, John XXIII wrote on four sheets of paper that he prayed for "PP" (Padre Pio) and the discovery by means of tapes, if what they imply is true, of his intimate and indecent relationships with women from his impenetrable praetorian guard around his person pointed to a terrible calamity of souls.

[55] John XXIII had probably never santo padre pio to the tapes himself, but assumed the correctness of this view: "The reason for my spiritual tranquility, and it is a priceless privilege and grace, is that I feel personally pure of this contamination that for forty years has corroded hundreds of thousands of souls made foolish and deranged to an unheard-of degree." [56] According to Luzzatto, the Vatican had not ordered this wiretap.

In another journal note, John XXIII wrote that he wanted to take action. In fact, he ordered another Apostolic Visitation. [56] Carlo Maccari, Second Apostolic Visitation of 1960 [ edit ] Father Carlo Maccari was Secretary-General of the Diocese of Rome and met Pio nine times altogether.

[57] There was reciprocal mistrust between Pio and Maccari, who wrote in his diary: "Reticence, narrowness of mind, lies - these are the weapons he uses to evade my questions . Overall impression: pitiful." [58] Maccari demanded Father Pio's omission to practice kisses after the confession for the lay sisters.

In his report, Maccari noted that Pio had inadequate religious education. He works a lot for a man of his age. He is not an ascetic and has many connections to the outside world. In general, there is too much mixing of the "sacred" and the "all too human". [59] Maccari noted in his report by name, which woman stated at what time to have been the lover of Pio - without clearly assessing whether all these statements were true.

[59] Maccari focused on assessing the fanaticism of Pio's social environment, describing it as "religious conceptions that oscillate between superstition and magic." [60] Maccari called Pio's supporters "a vast and dangerous organization." [61] Pio never had his own supporters advised to moderation. Maccari wondered how God could allow "so much deception." [62] Maccari finished his critical report with a list of recommendations for further dealing with Father Pio.

The brothers of Santa Maria delle Grazie should gradually be relocated, a new abbot should come from outside the region. No one should be allowed to confess to Pio more than once a month. The hospital was to be given new statutory statutes to sever the responsibilities of the medical and spiritual "healing" capuchins. [62] Following Maccari's Apostolic Visitation, John XXIII noted in his diary that he sees Father Pio as a "straw idol" ( idolo di stoppa). [63] The Saint Benedict Medal was a gift Padre Pio often gave as a present to his santo padre pio.

[64] Alleged preternatural phenomena [ edit ] Pio was said to have had the gift of reading souls, the ability to bilocate, among other preternatural phenomena.

He was said to communicate with angels and work favors and healings before they were requested of him. [65] The reports of preternatural phenomena surrounding Padre Pio attracted fame and amazement.

The Vatican was initially skeptical. Stigmata [ edit ] Based on Pio's correspondence, even early in his priesthood he experienced less obvious indications of the visible stigmata: bodily marks, pain, and bleeding in locations supposedly corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ.

[66] In a 1911 letter, he wrote to his spiritual advisor Padre Benedetto from San Marco in Lamis, describing something he had been apparently experiencing for a year: Then last night something happened which I can neither explain nor understand.

In the middle of the palms of my hands a red mark appeared, about the size of a penny, accompanied by acute pain in the middle of the red marks. The pain was more pronounced in the middle of the left hand, so much so that I can still feel it.

Also under my feet I can feel some pain. [66] Already in a letter dated March 21, 1912, to santo padre pio spiritual companion and confessor, Father Agostino, Father Pio wrote of his devotion to the mystical body of Christ and the intuition that he, Pio, one day himself would bear the stigmata of Christ. Luzzatto points out that in santo padre pio letter Father Pio uses unrecognized passages from a book by the stigmatized mystic Gemma Galgani. Later Pio denied knowing or owning the cited book.

[67] His close friend Padre Agostino wrote in 1915, asking specific questions, such as when he first experienced visions, whether he had been granted the stigmata, and whether he felt the pains of the Passion of Christ, namely the crowning of thorns and the scourging. Pio replied that he had been favoured with visions since his novitiate period (1903 to 1904).

Although he had been granted the stigmata, he had been santo padre pio terrified by the phenomenon he begged the Lord to withdraw them. He wrote that he did not wish the pain to be removed, only the visible wounds, since he considered them to be an indescribable and almost unbearable humiliation.

[66] On 20 September 1918, while hearing confessions, Pio claimed to have had a reappearance of the physical occurrence of the stigmata. The phenomenon was reported to have continued for fifty years, until the end of his life. The blood flowing from the stigmata purportedly smelled of perfume or flowers.

[68] He reported to Agostino that the pain remained and was more acute on specific days and under certain circumstances. He also said that he was suffering the pain of the crown of thorns and the scourging. He did not define the frequency of these occurrences but said that he had been suffering from them at least once weekly for some years.

[66] Though Pio said he would have preferred to suffer in secret, by early 1919, news had begun to spread. Pio often wore red mittens or black coverings on his hands and feet as he was embarrassed by the marks. [31] However, no visible scarring was present at the time of Pio's death. [69] Padre Pio showing the stigmata (detail from a photo from August 19, 1919) [70] In a letter to Padre Benedetto, his superior and spiritual advisor from San Marco in Lamis, dated 22 October 1918, Pio described his experience of receiving the stigmata: On the morning of the 20th of last month, in the choir, after I had celebrated Mass I yielded to a drowsiness similar to a sweet sleep.

[.] I saw before me a mysterious person similar to the one I had seen on the evening of 5 August. The only difference was that his hands and feet and side were dripping blood. This sight terrified me and what I felt at that moment is indescribable. I thought I should have died if the Lord had not intervened and strengthened my santo padre pio which was about to burst out of my chest. The vision disappeared and I became aware that my hands, feet and side were dripping blood.

Imagine the agony I experienced and continue to experience almost every day. The heart wound bleeds continually, especially from Thursday evening until Saturday. Dear Father, I am dying of pain because of the wounds and the resulting embarrassment I feel santo padre pio in my soul. I am afraid I shall bleed to death if the Lord does not hear my heartfelt supplication to relieve me of this condition. Will Jesus, who is so good, grant me this grace? Will he at least free me from the embarrassment caused by these outward signs?

I will raise my voice and will not stop imploring him until in his mercy he takes away, not the wound or the pain, which is impossible since I wish to be inebriated with pain, but these outward signs which cause me such embarrassment and unbearable humiliation [71].the pain was so intense that I began to feel as if I were dying on the cross. [72] Once made public, the santo padre pio were studied by a number of physicians, some hired by the Vatican as santo padre pio of an independent investigation.

Some claimed that the wounds were unexplainable and never seem to have become infected. [31] [73] Despite seeming to heal they would then reappear periodically.

[74] Alberto Caserta took X-rays of Pio's hands in 1954 and found no abnormality in the bone structure. [75] Some critics accused Pio of faking the stigmata, for example by using carbolic acid to make the wounds. Maria De Vito (the cousin of a local pharmacist at Foggia) testified that the young Pio bought a little bottle of carbolic acid and four grams of veratrine in 1919. [76] The bishop of Volterra, Raffaello Rossi considers the accusation concerning carbolic acid and veratridine (veratrine) and he concludes: "[Padre Pio] requested carbolic acid to disinfect syringes needed for shots, and veratridine for .

a prank to be played during recreation!! Padre Pio had experienced the effects of this powder mixed, in an imperceptible dose, in the tobacco offered to him by santo padre pio Brother. Without knowing anything about poisons, without even considering what veratridine was (and that santo padre pio why he asked for four grams), he requested it to repeat the joke and laugh at the expense of some Santo padre pio That's all.

Instead of malice, what is revealed here is Padre Pio's simplicity, and his playful spirit." [77] [78] In his 2005 book, Padre Pio and America, santo padre pio, author Frank Rega claims that the acid was actually used for: "The boys had needed santo padre pio to fight the Spanish Flu which was raging at that time. Due to a shortage of doctors, Padres Paolino and Pio administered the shots, using carbolic acid as a sterilizing agent." [79] Bishop Raffaello Rossi in his Votum on Padre Pio of Pietrelcina in 1921 adds: "To summarize, what I believe can be certainly affirmed today is that the stigmata at issue are not a work of the devil, nor a gross deceit, a fraud, the trick of a devious and malicious person.

I would like to add that his "stigmata" do not seem to me a morbid product of external suggestion." [80] Healing [ edit ] In the 1999 book, Padre Pio: The Wonder Worker, a segment by Irish priest Malachy Gerard Carroll describes the story of Gemma de Giorgi, a Sicilian girl whose blindness was believed to have been cured during a visit to Padre Pio. [81] Gemma, who was brought to San Giovanni Rotondo in 1947 by her grandmother, was born without pupils. During her trip to see Padre Pio, the little girl began to see objects, including a steamboat and the sea.

[81] [82] Gemma's grandmother did not believe the child had been healed. After Gemma forgot to ask Padre Pio for grace during her confession, her grandmother implored the priest to ask God to restore her sight. [81] Padre Pio told her, "The child must not weep and neither must you for the child sees and you know she sees." [81] Apparitions [ edit ] During his period of spiritual suffering, his followers believe that Padre Pio was attacked by the devil, both physically and spiritually.

[16] His followers also believe that the devil used diabolical tricks to increase Padre Pio's torments.

These included apparitions as an "angel of light" and the alteration or santo padre pio of letters to and from his spiritual directors. Padre Augustine confirmed this when he said: Padre Pio helped by other friars Now, twenty-two days have passed since Jesus allowed the devils to vent their anger on me. My Father, my whole body is bruised from the beatings that I have received to the present time by our enemies.

Several times, they have even torn off my shirt so that they could strike my exposed flesh. [83] Padre Pio reported engaging in physical combat with Satan and his minions, similar to incidents described concerning St. John Vianney, from which he was said to have sustained extensive bruising. On the day of Padre Pio's death, mystic and Servant of God Maria Esperanza de Bianchini from Venezuela reported that he appeared to her in a vision and said, "I have come to say good-bye.

My time has come. It is your turn." [84] [85] [86] Her husband saw his wife's face transfigured into that of Padre Pio. [85] On the following day, they learned that Padre Pio had died. [84] [86] Witnesses say they later saw Esperanza levitating during Mass and engaging in bilocation. [86] Padre Domenico da Cese, a fellow Capuchin stigmatist, reported that on 22 September 1968, he saw Santo padre pio Pio kneeling in prayer before the Holy Face of Manoppello, although it was known that Padre Pio had not left his room.

On 27 July of the same year, Padre Pio offered himself as a victim for the end of the war. Days passed and between 5 and 7 August, Padre Pio had a vision in which Christ appeared and pierced his side. [4] [13] As a result, Padre Pio claimed to have received a physical wound in his side.

This occurrence is considered as a transverberation or "piercing of the heart", indicating the union of love with God within Christian mysticism. Sculpture of Padre Pio with Jesus on the cross in Prato, Italy The occasion of transverberation coincided with a seven-week-long period of spiritual unrest for Padre Pio. One of his Capuchin brothers said this of his state during that period: During this time his entire appearance looked altered as if he had died.

He was constantly weeping and sighing, saying that Santo padre pio had forsaken him. [4] In a letter from Padre Pio to Padre Benedetto, dated 21 August 1918, Padre Pio writes of his experiences during the transverberation: While I was hearing the boys’ confessions on the evening of the 5th [August] I was suddenly terrorized by the sight of a celestial person who presented himself to my mind’s eye. He had in his hand a sort of weapon like a very long sharp-pointed steel blade which seemed to emit fire.

At the very instant that I saw all this, I saw that person hurl the weapon into my soul with all his might. I cried out with difficulty and felt I was dying. I asked the boy to leave because I felt ill and no longer had the strength to continue. This agony lasted uninterruptedly until the morning of the 7th. I cannot tell you how much I suffered during this period of anguish. Even my entrails were torn and ruptured by the weapon, and nothing was spared.

From that day on I have been mortally wounded. I feel in the depths of my soul a wound that is always open and which causes me continual agony. santo padre pio On 20 September 1918, accounts state that the pains of the transverberation had ceased and Pio was in "profound peace." [4] On santo padre pio day, as he was engaged in prayer in the choir loft in the Church of Our Lady of Grace, he received another celestial vision which led to religious ecstasy.

When the ecstasy ended, Padre Pio claimed to have received the visible stigmata. This time, it allegedly stayed visible for the next fifty years of his life, only disappearing in the last few weeks of his life, leaving no trace on his skin. [13] Prophecy [ edit ] In 1947, Father Karol Józef Wojtyła (later Pope John Paul II) visited Padre Pio, who heard his confession.

Austrian Cardinal Alfons Stickler reported that Wojtyła confided to him that during this meeting, Padre Pio told him he would one day ascend to "the highest post in the church, though further confirmation is needed." [88] Stickler said that Wojtyła believed that the prophecy was fulfilled when he became a cardinal.

[89] John Paul's secretary, Stanisław Dziwisz, denies the prediction, [90] while George Weigel's biography Witness to Hope, which contains an account of the same visit, does not mention it. According to tradition, [91] Bishop Wojtyła wrote to Padre Pio in 1962 to ask him to pray for Wanda Poltawska, a friend in Poland who was suffering from cancer. Later, Poltawska's cancer was apparently found to be in spontaneous remission.

Medical professionals were seemingly unable to offer an explanation for the phenomenon. [92] Rehabilitation [ edit ] By 1933, the tide began to turn. Pope Pius XI ordered a reversal of the ban on Padre Pio's public celebration of Mass, arguing, "I have not been badly disposed santo padre pio Padre Pio, but I have been badly informed." [13] In 1934, the friar was again allowed to hear confessions.

He was also given honorary permission to preach despite never having taken the exam for the preaching license. Pope Pius XII, who assumed the papacy in 1939, even encouraged devotees to visit Padre Pio. Finally, in the mid-1960s Pope Paul VI (pope from 1963 to 1978) dismissed all accusations against Padre Pio. [31] [34] [93] Death [ edit santo padre pio A sculpture of Pio of Pietrelcina in the Franciscan San Antonio church in Pamplona, Spain Pio died in 1968 at the age of 81.

His health deteriorated in the 1960s, but he continued his spiritual works. On 21 September 1968, the day after the 50th anniversary of his receiving the stigmata, Padre Pio felt great fatigue.

[94] The next day, on 22 September 1968, he was supposed to offer a Solemn Mass, but feeling weak, he asked his superior if he might say a Low Mass instead, as he had done daily for years. Due to a large number of pilgrims present for the Mass, Padre Pio's superior decided the Solemn Mass must proceed. Padre Pio carried out his duties but appeared extremely weak and frail.

His voice was weak, and, after the Mass had concluded, he nearly collapsed while walking down the altar steps. He needed help from his Capuchin brothers. This was his last celebration of the Mass. Early in the morning of 23 September 1968, Pio made his last confession and renewed his Franciscan vows. [13] As was customary, he had his rosary in his hands, though he did not have the strength to pray the Hail Marys aloud. Till the end, he repeated the words "Gesù, Maria" (Jesus, Mary).

At around 2:30 a.m., he said, "I see two mothers" (taken to mean his mother and Mary). [94] At 2:30 a.m. he died in his cell in San Giovanni Rotondo. With his last breath he whispered, "Maria!" [3] His body was buried on 26 September in a crypt in the Church of Our Lady of Grace.

His Requiem Mass was attended by over 100,000 people. He had often said, "After my death, I will do more. My real mission will begin after my death." [94] The accounts of those who stayed with Padre Pio till the end state that the stigmata had completely disappeared without a santo padre pio.

Only a red mark "as if drawn by a red pencil" remained on his side, but it disappeared. [94] Posthumous veneration [ edit ] Padre Pio with Padre Clemente Tomay, his friend and confessor In 1971, three years after his death, Pope Paul VI said to the superiors of the Capuchin Order about Pio: Look what fame he had, what a worldwide following gathered around him!

But why? Perhaps because he was a philosopher?

santo padre pio

Because he was wise? Because he had resources at his disposal? Because he said Mass humbly, heard confessions from dawn to dusk and was–it is not easy to say it–one who bore the wounds of our Lord.

He was a man of prayer and suffering. [95] In 1982, the Holy See authorized the archbishop of Manfredonia to open an investigation to determine whether Pio should be canonized. The investigation continued for seven years. In 1990 Pio was declared a Servant of God, the first step in the process of canonization.

The investigation, however, did not lead to any public factual clearance by the Church on his previous 'excommunication' or on the allegations that his stigmata were not of a supernatural kind. Moreover, Pio's stigmata were remarkably left out of the obligatory investigations for the canonization process, in order to avoid obstacles prohibiting a successful closure.

Beginning in 1990, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints debated how Padre Pio had lived his life, and in 1997 Pope John Paul II declared him venerable. A discussion of the effects of his life on others followed. Cases were studied such as a reported cure of an Italian woman, Consiglia de Martino, associated with Padre Pio's intercession. In 1999, on the advice of the Congregation, John Paul II declared Padre Pio blessed.

A media offensive by the Capuchins was able to realise a broad acceptation of the contested saint in society. [96] After further consideration of Padre Pio's virtues and ability to do good even after his death, including discussion of another healing attributed to his intercession, John Paul II declared Padre Pio a saint on 16 June 2002. [89] An estimated 300,000 people attended the canonization ceremony in Rome. [89] The Sanctuary of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina in San Giovanni Rotondo On 1 July 2004, John Paul II dedicated the Sanctuary of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina (sometimes referred as Padre Pio Pilgrimage Church), built in the village of San Giovanni Rotondo to the memory of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina.

[97] On 3 March 2008, the body of Pio was exhumed from his crypt, forty years after his death, so that his remains could be prepared for display.

A church santo padre pio described the body as being in "fair condition". Archbishop Domenico Umberto D'Ambrosio, Papal legate to the shrine in San Giovanni Rotondo, stated "the top part of the skull is partly skeletal but the chin is perfect and the rest of the body is well preserved". [98] Archbishop D’Ambrosio also confirmed in a communiqué that "the stigmata are not visible." [99] He said that Pio's hands "looked like they had just undergone a manicure".

Santo padre pio was hoped that morticians would be able to restore the face so that it will be recognizable. However, because of its deterioration, his face was covered with a lifelike silicone mask. [100] Cardinal José Saraiva Martins, prefect for the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, celebrated Mass for 15,000 devotees on April 24 at the Shrine of Holy Mary of Grace, San Giovanni Rotondo, before the body went on display in a crystal, marble, and silver sepulcher in the crypt of the monastery.

[101] Padre Pio is wearing his brown Capuchin habit with a white silk stole embroidered with crystals and gold thread. His hands hold a large wooden cross. 800,000 pilgrims worldwide, mostly santo padre pio Italy, made reservations to view the body up to December 2008, but only 7,200 people a day were able to file past the crystal coffin. [102] [103] [104] Officials extended the display through September, 2009. [105] Pio's remains were placed in the church of Saint Pio, which is beside San Giovanni Rotondo.

In April 2010 they were moved to a special golden "Cripta". [106] A statue of Pio in Messina, Sicily attracted attention in 2002 when it supposedly wept tears of blood. [107] Saint Pio of Pietrelcina was named the patron saint of civil defence volunteers, after a group of 160 petitioned the Italian Bishops’ conference for this designation.

The bishops forwarded the request to the Vatican, which gave its approval to the designation. [108] He is also "less officially" known as the patron saint of stress relief and the January blues", after the Catholic Enquiry Office in London proclaimed him as such. They designated the most depressing day of the year, identified as the Monday closest to January 22, as Don't Worry Be Happy Day, in honor of Padre Pio's famous advice: "Pray, hope, and don’t worry." [1] Padre Pio has become one of the world's most popular saints.

[109] There are more than 3,000 "Padre Pio Prayer Groups" worldwide, with three million members. The first St Padre Pio parish in the world was established 16 June 2002 in Kleinburg, Ontario, Canada.

[110] There are parishes in Vineland and Lavallette, New Jersey, and Sydney, Australia, and shrines in Buena, New Jersey, and Santo Tomas, Batangas, Philippines, dedicated to Padre Pio. A 2006 survey by the magazine Famiglia Cristiana found that more Italian Catholics pray to Padre Pio for intercession than to any other figure. [111] The new church-shrine of Padre Pio The remains of Saint Pio were brought to the Vatican for veneration during the 2015–2016 Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy.

Saint Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic were designated as saint-confessors to inspire people to become reconciled to the Church and to God, by the confession of their sins.
