The life and times Padre Pio of Pietrelcina are remarkable, at times downright paranormal and always fascinating!
Who was Padre Pio?
He has been a Catholic saint since 2002, but before that he was a controversial Capuchin Catholic Priest and he bore the Stigmata - the wounds of Christ
Beginning 6 years before his death, on September 20th, 1928, in a monastery hidden high in the hills of Southern Italy, something very strange happened to PadrePio.
Alarmed by the unexplainable events which began to follow, the Church ordered his immediate confinement. But even the thick stone walls of his cell could not contain the phenomenal forces that surrounded him.
In a very short time, the entire countryside was keenly aware of his presence. And now, the World will know...

Author's Note: This story is based on the true facts of Padre Pio's life. Some of the events herein are composites of events that have been documented by numerous and reliable sources.
Readers who are doubtful, or those who wish to delve further into the books on Padre Pio of Pietrelcina's life, numerous writings about this remarkable Capuchin friar-priest are listed at the end of this book.
Since many of the people involved in Padre Pio's life may still be alive, some of their names have been changed. A few of the characters are also fictitious.
The person who reads this novel and then explores other books on Padre Pio further will discover that the real life of Padre Pio is far more remarkable and fantastic than any product of this writer's imagination.
Many of the anecdotes are difficult to believe, and I present them as a reporter, for you to determine believability for yourself. However, these stories have been researched, in an attempted to be disproved by many, including the Vatican. Though some could not be verified, they could not be disproved.
I now respectfully submit my story of Padre Pio, The Capuchin... a story of Sex, Horror & Violence against Unyielding Faith!
