Padre Pio, born Francesco Forgione in 1887, was the son of poor Italian farmers. He became a Capuchin priest and eventually became an inspiration to millions. In 1971, Pope Paul VI explained why: “...It was because he said Mass humbly, heard confessions from morning until night and was a marked representative of the stigmata of Our Lord. He was truly a man of prayer and suffering.” Today, Padre Pio’s favorite advice - pray, hope and don’t worry - continues to resonate with the world.
