We celebrate his feast day on Sept. 23. Padre Pio (1887–1968) — the Italian friar, priest, stigmatist, and mystic — is one of the most famous of our 20th-century saints. We can chalk that up to his stigmata — the wounds of Christ visible on his hands, feet, and side.

Dear St. Padre Pio,
I am seeking and knocking, hoping for your divine intercession in our family. Praying a special intercession for our son Ryan, in his marriage. Also praying my son Ron who in need of a full time job in law enforcement. Please keep my sons close to you and St. Michael. Please I'm begging for your intercession. St. Padre Pio pray for our family and the whole world.
Amen
