Photo of Padre Pio's remains in Italy. Beside this frame are several testimonies of successfully granted intentions pasted on the wall.
Vera M. Calandra Center - Ms. Calandra championed the canonization of Padre Pio and she was founder of the U.S. Shrine to Padre Pio in Norristown. She took her morbidly ill daughter to the stigmatic monk in Foggia, Italy when the child's doctor said she wouldn't survive (they removed her bladder). The monk kissed the child's hand. Later that year, Padre Pio died, while the child grew up healthy and lived a full life.
The incorrupt body of St. Pio (left) in Italy, wearing a "silicone mask" (because the face was "deteriorating", but the chin was perfect and the rest of the body was well-preserved). In fact, his hands "looked like they had just undergone a manicure," according to Archibishop D'Ambrosio. Padre Pio (right) constantly covering his arms because of his bleeding wounds which continuously embarrassed him.
