This chaplet begins with a nickel silver medal of Padre Pio, followed by three sets of 5 (15 total) 6mm Egyptian lapis beads and ends with a Sacred Heart / Immaculate Heart medal. Each bead is capped with lead-free Tibetan silver and wrap-looped with nickel silver wire for maximum strength and durability, then the 3 bead sections were joined with sets of 3 lead-free Tibetan silver beads. This chaplet will last for generations of normal wear and prayer and would make a beautiful gift of faith for anytime of the year, especially wonderful for an expectant mother. Anyone need a Baby Shower gift? I'll include a St. Pio prayer card, chaplet prayer instructions and an organza pouch with your purchase.

A Brief History:
At age 15 he entered the novitiate of the Capuchin friars in Morcone, Italy and joined the order at age 19. He was ordained at age 22 on August 10, 1910. He received the stigmata for the first time in 1918 while praying before the cross, the first priest to ever experience this event. His fame spread by the end of WWII as soldiers returned home with stories of the priest and people began to make pilgrimages to see him. He was said to be able to read the consciences of those who held back in confession, was able to levitate, bilocate and even heal by touch. In 1956 he founded the House for the Relief of Suffering Hospital in San Giovanni Rotundo. The miracle that led to his canonization involved curing the son of a doctor who worked at the hospital. This happened in the year 2000. The boy had gone into a coma with all his internal organs shutting down. A prayer group, consisting of the boy's mother and Capuchin friars of Padre Pio’s monastery, prayed over the child. In the morning he awoke from the coma and talked of seeing 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.
