A Padre Pio evening


Yesterday we went to St. Mary's in Alexandria, Virginia to hear Fr. Ermelindo DeCapua give a talk on Padre Pio. Fr. DiCapua lived with Padre Pio for the last three years of the saint's life. He brought a precious relic, one of the gloves that covered Padre Pio's stigmata and blessed us all with it. Rocky estimated that there must've been about 600 people in attendence. Fr. DiCapua is touring America and raising funds for a home for sick old priests to retire to.

Dymphna: Do you know if Fr. DiCapua is touring, and coming to Canada to give that talk as well? I would really like to attend. Website link?

I don't know if he's coming to Canada but he is touring. Looking at his previous travels it seems like he's sticking to the East Coast of the US on this trip.

Thanks for the information, Dymphna. I will do some checking myself.

Dymphna,

My wife and I are deeply attached to St Pio.
We just built a chapel on our property called St Pio Chapel.
We have a second class relic of St Pio that we will set upon the altar.

Do you know if Father Capua is coming to North Carolina?

please e-mail me at:

if you know.

Thank you so much and God bless you and yours.
