The national tour of St. Padre Pio’s relics is taking place to commemorate the 130th anniversary of Padre Pio’s birth, and the 15th anniversary of his canonization.

Padre Pio was a humble Capuchin priest who lived the last 50 years of his life in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy. He was blessed by God in many wonderful and mysterious ways; The most dramatic was the stigmata and he bore these wounds of Christ for fifty years. Among his other gifts were the odor of sanctity, bilocation, prophecy, conversion, reading of souls, and miraculous cures. People are still being cured through his intercession in ways that cannot be explained by medicine or science. Saint Pio is a powerful intercessor. His motto was “Pray, hope, and don’t worry.”

The tour is being sponsored by the Saint Pio Foundation, which works to promote awareness of the saintly priest and continue his work.
