St. Padre Pio - Micro Profile:

Pio of Pietrelcina O.F.M. Cap. commonly known as Padre Pio, (May 25, 1887 – September 23, 1968) was a friar, priest, stigmatist, and mystic of the Roman Catholic Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. Padre Pio became famous for bearing the stigmata for most of his life, which generated much interest and controversy around him. He is now venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church.

Pio was born Francesco Forgione, and given the name of Pius (Italian: Pio) when he joined the Capuchins. After his beatification in 1999, he was canonized by Pope Saint John Paul II on June 16, 2002.

In Mangalore, devotion to St.Padre Pio has grown tremendously in the last few years. A srine dedicated to the saint is at Jail Road, behind the PIO MALL now a place of pilgrimage. A life like replica of his body preserved in Italy attracts the people of Mangalore and surrounding areas.
