Padre Pio


For John, BLUFIn our lifetime.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



My wife and I try to do "Evening Prayer" before we go to sleep.  Sometimes we join with others around the world doing Evening Prayer and sometimes we just fall asleep.  Last night we did it and it turned out to be the Feast Day of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina.  When we were stationed in Naples, Italy, then Padre Pio was still alive and living in San Giovanni Rotondo, on the other side of the peninsula from us.

One of the things about Padre Pio is that he had the stigmata.

Per Wikipedia he is the Patron Saint of "Don't Worry, Be Happy Day" (22 January).
