Biography of Padre Pio
This is the padre pio garden statue. Padre Pio was born in Pietricina, a small town in southern Italy. On January 22, 1903, he joined the Gabonese Franciscan and named “Pio”. Padre Pio died on September 23, 1968 at the age of 81 in St. John Rotondo. On June 16, 2002, he canonized as a “Saint” by Pope John Paul II. Father Bio’s Memorial Day is September 23.
Padre Pio is an Italian Catholic Franciscan missionary priest, carrying holy wounds, and a mystic. Later, he also canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church. Padre Pio is well known for carrying holy wounds all his life since 1918, which has caused many researches and controversies on this event.
Padre Pio is a real great miracle in the 20th century, a transcendent miracle that the world can not explain. There are five wounds prints on the body: there are open wounds on the hands, feet and ribs. The blood flows continuously. The wound on the single rib is like an upside down cross. The wound emits a wonderful fragrance.
Like the apostles of Paul, father bio regards the cross of Christ as his strength, wisdom and glory, and puts it at the center of his life and apostolic work. The love of Christ scorched him and made him look like Christ, sacrificing himself for the salvation of the world. He generously and perfectly followed and imitated Christ on the cross, so that he could say: “I have been crucified with Christ, and my life is no longer my life, but Christ lives in me.”
