Padre Pio is one of my favorite saints. Below is a nice little video containing rare film footage from the everyday ministry of Padre Pio’s life. It’s surreal seeing the saint on camera.

Stigmata of Padre Pio Compared to Saint Francis’ Stigmata

For those that don’t know about Saint Pio, he bore the sacred stigmata (five wounds of Christ) in his body for exactly 50 years and then died. These unexplainable wounds were verified by skeptics, doctors, and scientists. I made a short video comparing the stigmata of Saint Pio to the stigmata of Saint Francis. The stigmata of one saint differed from the other. Here’s my video on the topic.

Placing the stigmata aside, Saint Pio’s life is filled with sanctity, heroic act, and profound love for Christ and his neighbor.
