A banner day with perfect weather! We spent the day in San Giovanni Rotundo at the churches of St. Padre Pio. We had Mass where he celebrated Mass and saw his body displayed in the glass casket.
Super exciting was watching a movie about his life, personally meeting one of his brother Cappuchins and being blessed on our heads with Padre Pio’s stigmata mitten and his crucifix. Our people kept saying “Wow!”
Then to Mount St. Michael to visit the cave where Michael the Archangel appeared four times and the only Catholic Church in the world not consecrated by a bishop since St. Michael said he consecrated it himself. Enjoy the day.
I put up two videos: one of the day’s adventures and one of my short talks telling a short biography of Padre Pio.
