Padre Pio has been called the most important Italian of the 20th century, and that would take some doing. He has inspired the country, popes, his followers and contributors. Look no further than the number of hostelries and monuments dedicated to him throughout Italy. The enormous hospital adjacent is the beneficiary of his good works. He is worth encountering on a temporal level. Now for the spiritual. Stigmata is a powerful concept and despite self conscious prattling cannot be explained away by Freudian interpretations. He seemed to have spiritual knowledge of the way of the world and meaning of events. Finally, very holy people who came to meet him, came away convinced he was a saint. Experience this place, his shoes, his crucifix, the bloody linen from his wounds with an open mind and heart. You will be rewarded.
