An EWTN Classic Documentary Home Video narrated by Edmond Purdom on the
saint known as Padre Pio, who bore the wounds of Our Lord on his body
for over 50 years. Born into a humble, hard-working peasant family in
Pietrelcina, Italy in 1887, he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin
Friars at age 15, and was ordained a priest in 1910. Eight years later
he recieved the five wounds of Our Lord, thereby making him the first
stigmatized priest in the history of the Church. His heroic priestly
apostolate lasted for 68 years, characterized by long hours in the
confessional, extraordinary insight in the hearts of those who came to
him for counsel, and extreme suffering. He was canonized in 2002 by John
Paul II, 33 years after his death, and is considered one of the most
popular and beloved of modern-day saints.
