Sep 23 – Homily – Fr Jacinto: St Pio of Pietrelcina
Padre Pio is the first priest to receive the stigmata, which he bore for 50 years shedding a pint of blood a day. Padre Pio shared in the victimhood of Christ to bring souls back to God in the confessional. He prayed 100 rosaries a day, calling it "the true weapon".
