Anniversary of the Canonization of Padre Pio

11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Let us prayerfully gather to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the canonization of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. In one of the largest ceremonies in history, Pope John Paul II canonized Padre Pio of Pietrelcina on June 16, 2002. More than 300,000 filled Saint Peter’s Square and nearby streets. They heard the Holy Father praise the new saint for his prayer and charity. “This is the most concrete synthesis of Padre Pio’s teaching,” said the pope. He also stressed Padre Pio’s witness to the power of suffering. If accepted with love, the Holy Father stressed, such suffering can lead to “a privileged path of sanctity.”
