Growing up in a poor family in Italy, Padre Pio faced numerous health issues. He had a deep spirituality & decided at age 5 that he would dedicate his life to God. When he entered the Capuchin friars at age 15, he chose the name Pio after Pope Pius I whose relic he often saw at his local chapel. One day, while praying, he felt pain in his hands & feet, & saw the stigmata, the wounds of Christ, forming. The wounds bled, & continued to weep but never became infected & smelled of roses. This miracle gained him a lot of unwanted popularity which he used for good to open a hospital. Padre Pio was most known for his piety, charity, & the quality of his preaching. He famously advised, "Pray, hope, and don't worry."
