The Saint of the New Millennium

In an era when educated persons say “we must see in order to believe,” Padre Pio is God’s answer! Here is the humble friar whose existence exemplified Franciscan humility and yet coexisted continually in the presence of the supernatural—the priest who lived in two worlds simultaneously.
