He bore the Stigmata...the real and visible wounds of the crucifixion. He was reputed to be capable of bilocation: the ability to be in two places at one time. His charisms were numerous and sensational, and quickly made Padre Pio the subject of world-wide interest. Yet in spite of these spectacular abilities, the most remarkable of his miracles must have occurred in the confessional... Hundreds and thousands of pilgrims awaited their turn at the confessional of Padre Pio. In many instances, it wasn't uncommon for these people to wait for as long as fifteen and twenty days to have their confessions heard. Was it because he had a special grace which enabled him to penetrate consciences and stimulate his penitents to rise up and live in God's grace and love? Whatever the reason, he took sinners to his bosom and showed God's love and tender compassion. His entire priestly life was dedicated to the task of winning souls for God.
