Saint Pio was born in a small farming town in Pietrelcina in Italy on 25th May 1887. As a young boy, he had already shown signs of extraordinary gifts of grace. At the age of five, he dedicated his life to God. As a young boy he was able to see and communicate with his guardian angel, Jesus and the Virgin Mary. On August 10, 1910, at the age of twenty-three, Padre Pio was ordained to the priesthood. The celebration of the Holy Mass was for Padre Pio, the centre of his spirituality.  Due to the long pauses of contemplative silence into which he entered at various parts of the Holy Sacrifice, his Mass could sometimes last several hours. The marks of the stigmata, the wounds of Christ, appeared on Padre Pio’s body, on Friday, September 20, 1918, while he was praying before a crucifix and making his thanksgiving after Mass. He was thirty-one years old and became the first stigmatised priest in the history of the Church. With resignation and serenity, he bore the painful wounds in his hands, feet, and side for fifty years. In addition, God endowed Padre Pio with many extraordinary spiritual gifts and charisma including the gift of healing, bi location, prophecy, miracles, discernment of spirits, the ability to abstain beyond man’s natural powers from both sleep and nourishment, the ability to read hearts, the gift of tongues (the ability to speak and understand languages that he had never studied), the gift of conversions, the grace to see angelic beings in form, and the fragrance which emanated from his wounds and which frequently announced his invisible presence. His work day lasted roughly 19 hours, only slept a few hours each night, consumed 300-400 calories a day and never took even a day's holiday in 51 years.
