Remembering Saint Padre Pio on the Anniversaries of both his Stigmata & Death
On September 20, 2018, we honored the 100th Anniversary of Saint Padre Pio’s Stigmata – and – Sunday, September 23th, marks the 50th Anniversary of his death. We would like to give Special Recognition for the example he set for us and for his service to all Catholics.
Saint Padre Pio is famously known for his stigmata, visions, and the gift of healing. His stigmata first appeared on September 20th, 1918 while he was hearing confession. The Stigmata directly mimics Christ’s Crucifixion and Passion wounds on his hands, feet, and side. The wounds had a floral odor, often referred to as the, “odor of sanctity”, and the Stigmata was perceived by many as evidence of holiness. With much skepticism surrounding Saint Pio, he was investigated many times, but all the doctors commissioned by the Holy See confirmed his Stigmata is to have been a gift from God.
