Description - Padre Pio by Colm Keane

Saint, wonder-worker, mystic and stigmatic Padre Pio has had a myriad of miracles and cures attributed to him and is remembered as Ireland s most popular intercessor. This book is crammed with testaments to his deeds. Scientifically inexplicable recoveries from cancer, depression, heart disease, trauma and brain damage are documented. Enigmatic revivals from blood clots, strokes, multiple sclerosis and life-threatening viral infections are recounted. Ordinary men and women describe visions and apparitions resulting in graces and favours being received from this Italian saint. Strange perfumes of roses, incense and tobacco are recalled. Supernormal coincidences are revealed. Early pilgrimages, including trail-breaking journeys to San Giovanni Rotondo by Irish men and women in the 1950s and 60s, are revisited. The floods of devotees travelling to his beatification in 1999 and canonisation in 2002 are recorded. Irish people who met him tell their stories.
