“If we earnestly endeavor to love Jesus, this alone will drive all fear from our hearts and soul will find that instead of walking in the Lord’s paths, it is flying.” St. Pio

St. Pio Statue Tour

The life-size statue of St. Pio is on his second tour of churches in the region before being installed on the Casa USA campus in Howell, MI, where he will remain permanently to greet devoted pilgrims & his spiritual children.

The statue is a one-of-a-kind depiction of Padre Pio created to sit under a magnificent tree on the property in Howell, MI. 

On September 7th, 1910, in the first year of his ministry, Padre Pio received the first stigmata while sitting beneath a magnificent tree in Piana Romana, Italy.

St. Pio shared the experience in a letter to his spiritual advisor, 

“In the center of my hands, a red spot appeared, about the size of a coin, and with it, an intense pain in the soles of my feet.”

This pain in his hands and feet was the first occurrence of the stigmata, even though they were not visible at the time.

It was not until September 20, 1918, that Padre Pio received the visible stigmata after he celebrated morning Mass.

The statue is based on one of the few photos of St. Pio when he was younger.
