 Our Description

"Very well made, with a subtlety that's often lacking in religious features, this is a vibrant, soulful work that stands comparison to a more familiar series like Jesus of Nazareth. - DVD Times

"Castellitto's soulful performance conveys an accessible blend of humor, sanctity and tough love.  Beautifully shot, with picturesque Italian vistas, the film eloquently captures Padre Pio's simple spirituality of uniting one's life with Christ-especially in suffering."-U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Office for Film and Broadcasting

Sergio Castellitto (Mostly Martha) stars as the famous Italian saint, Padre Pio (1887-1968).  Like Saint Francis of Assisi, Padre Pio had the stigmata: the wounds of Christ visible on his body.  Throughout his life, he performed miracles and healings, caring for both the physically sick as well as those with spiritual illnesses.  Filled with gorgeous scenery from the Italian countryside, this film follows Padre Pio's life from a young boy through his death.  Director Carlo Carlei (Flight of the Innocent) captures the humility, humor, and common sense of  St. Pio, as well as showing the persecution he suffered from both satanic  attacks and misguided Church officials who distrusted him.  Winner of the Audience Award at the 2001 Los Angeles Italian Film Awards.

Profile
    Born to a southern Italian farm family, the son of Grazio, a shepherd. At age 15 he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin friars in Morcone, and joined the order at age 19. Suffered several health problems, and at one point his family thought he had tuberculosis. Ordained at age 22 on 10 August 1910.

    While praying before a cross, he received the stigmata on 20 September 1918, the first priest ever to be so blessed. As word spread, especially after American soldiers brought home stories of Padre Pio following WWII, the priest himself became a point of pilgrimage for both the pious and the curious. He would hear confessions by the hour, reportedly able to read the consciences of those who held back. Reportedly able to bilocate, levitate, and heal by touch. Founded the House for the Relief of Suffering in 1956, a hospital that serves 60,000 a year. In the 1920's he started a series of prayer groups that continue today with over 400,000 members worldwide.

    His canonization miracle involved the cure of Matteo Pio Colella, age 7, the son of a doctor who works in the House for Relief of Suffering, the hospital in San Giovanni Rotondo founded by Padre Pio. On the night of 20 June 2000, Matteo was admitted to the intensive care unit of the hospital with meningitis. By morning doctors had lost hope for him as nine of the boy´s internal organs had ceased to give signs of life. That night, during a prayer vigil attended by Matteo´s mother and some Capuchin friars of Padre Pio´s monastery, the child's condition improved suddenly. When he awoke from the coma, Matteo said that he had seen an elderly man with a white beard and a long, brown habit, who said to him: "Don´t worry, you will soon be cured." The miracle was approved by the Congregation and Pope John Paul II on 20 December 2001.
