St. Padre Pio, Relics Coming to the Vatican.
My Aunt Sue and I prayed together to St. Padre Pio. God took her to Heaven February 15, 2015. Today would have been my Aunt Sue’s 79th Birthday.
The body of Padre Pio will be on display for veneration at next month’s Ash Wednesday Mass in the Vatican, where a group of priests will be sent out as “Missionaries of Mercy” for the Jubilee Year.
Pope Francis “has expressed his keen desire” for the relics of the Capuchin saint to be exposed during the Feb. 10 Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, said Archbishop Rino Fisichella, president of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.
