A classic documentary narrated by Edmond Purdom on the saint known as Padre Pio, who bore the wounds of Our Lord for over 50 years. Born into a humble, hard-working peasant family in Pietrelcina, Italy in 1887, he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin Friars at age 15, and was ordained a priest in 1910. Eight years later he received the five wounds of Our Lord, thereby making him the first stigmatised priest in the history of the Church. His heroic priestly apostolate lasted for 68 years, characterised by long hours in the confessional, extraordinary insight into the hearts of those who came to him for counsel, and extreme suffering. He was canonised in 2002 by John Paul II, 33 years after his death, and is considered one of the most popular and beloved of modern-day saints. Running time: 124 minutes. Format: PAL Region 2 DVD. A 'multiregion' dvd player is required outside Europe.
