Another amazing Saint, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina.
Born Francesco Forgione, but given the name Pius (Italian: Pio) upon entering the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin.
He was a Friar, Priest, and Mystic. In addition to this, on 20 September, 1918, he received the Stigmata – the visible wounds of Christ. These gave him great pain and suffering…which he offered for the sanctification of souls.
He was canonised on 16 June, 2002, although with such gifts as those with which he was endowed, he was really a living saint.
