St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Padre Pio, an Italian monk from an obscure town,changed the lives of Catholics around the world by his prayers, his holy example, and his spiritual advice. Over 500,000 people were present in St. Peter's Square for his canonization, and people have called this simple monk the holiest man of the 20th Century. He was the first priest to recieve the Stigmata, and one of the few saints gifted with bilocation.
