Padre Pio Feast Day

September 23rd is the Feast Day of Saint Padre Pio. I suppose that technically you're supposed to call him Saint Pio, but I can't think of him without the "padre" in front of his name. Maybe it's because he is a spiritual father to me.

I'm reading Man of Hope by Renzo Allegri. It's a terrific read, and meticulously researched. Probably the best introduction to San Pio out there.
