Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Padre Pio was born in Pietrelcina on 25 May 1887, and received Minor Orders on 19 December 1908, in Benevento. On 10 August 1910, he was ordained to the priesthood in the canonical chapel of the Benevento Cathedral and on 14 August, he celebrated his first solemn Mass in Pietrelcina; in this year the stigmata first occur. Padre Pio was venerated by his devotees because of his widespread fame as miracle worker. On 16 June 2002, in Saint Peter’s Square His Holiness, Pope John Paul II declared Blessed Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Saint and announced his liturgical memorial on the general roman calendar with the grade of “obligatory” to be 23 September, “the day of his birth in heaven.”
