On September 20, 1918, Padre Pio was kneeling at a crucifix when he received the visible marks of the crucifixion. The blood from the stigmata had an odor similar to that of perfume or flowers, and Padre Pio received the gifts of bilocation, levitation and healing by touch. After WWII, Padre Pio himself became a point of pilgrimage. He would hear confessions by the hour, reportedly able to read the consciences of those who held back.
PRAYER TO SAINT PIO OF PIETRELCINA
Saint Pio, the healings of the sick have become the testimony that the Lord has invited you to join the holy company of saints. In your kindness, please help me with my own special request: (mention here your petition, and make the sign of the Cross.) Bless me and my loved ones. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
