Saint Pio’s Blessing

Padre Pio from in Pietrelcina, southern Italy, also known as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. He died in 1968 when I was six. Padre Pio became famous for presenting stigmata for most of his life, thereby generating much interest in the Catholic community. He was both beatified (1999) and canonized (2002) by Pope John Paul II. “Pray, hope, and don’t worry. Worry is useless. […]
