The tremendously popular saint, known simply as Padre Pio, was recognized as a means to miracles in his lifetime as he is today. Privileged to bear the wounds of Christ in his body, he was celebrated for life-long mystical experiences which include frequent confrontations with the devil, bilocation and prophecy. But what really made the humble Capuchin friar a saint was his devotedness to prayer and sacrifice and a personal drive for union with Christ crucified.
