The incorrupt heart relic of Padre Pio arrived in the Philippines on Friday. It will be taken around the country for veneration in the next 20 days. Padre Pio’s heart relic will visit Sto. Tomas in Batangas, Manila, Cebu, Davao and Lipa City before leaving on the 26th.

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina became famous for exhibiting stigmata – bodily marks and wounds corresponding to the wounds of Jesus Christ. On September 20, 1918, the stigmata started appearing on Padre Pio’s body and continued until his death. He would later be beatified in 1999 and canonized as a saint in 2002, both by Pope John Paul II.

The visit  of Padre Pio’s heart relic coincides with two very special occasions for the saint this year. It was 100 years ago, on September 20, 1918, when the beloved priest’s stigmatization began. And it has been 50 years (September 23, 1968) since his death.

The incorrupt heart relic was accompanied by a motorcade to the National Shrine of St. Padre Pio in Sto. Tomas, Batangas upon its arrival on Friday, where a welcome mass was celebrated. It will stay at the shrine until Sunday after which it will visit Manila, Cebu, Davao and Lipa City.
