We journey to San Giovanni Rotondo, a small town in the region of Apulia in southern Italy. The name of the city is forever linked with one of the most popular contemporary saints, Saint Padre Pio. Here, we examine the question of why St. Padre Pio received the stigmata, and its significance for our own spiritual lives.
