Loved your post(#28)! Right on target.I've also heard it said that for a stigmatist,any stigmatist to have the marks of Christ exactly where the Lord's were would be asking too much or something like that.

"Many people said Padre Pio was able to predict events in their lives or knew what they were about to confess."

We could have used him at the Dallas bishops' meeting and as the lead investigator for sex abuse.

Hilary was one of Devils he was wrestling with. Unfortunately she is still around to plague us.

In all seriousness, read something about the guy. If anybody ever was a saint, this guy was.

to Thomas: "Take your finger and examine my hands.

I believe I read somewhere that Aramaic doesn't have a separate word for wrist -- their word for hand includes both.

Even more amazing than the celebration is that the thread got this far without hijacking to the Whore of Babylon theme.

I wish they had reported that Padre Pio also foretold that our present Holy Father would one day be Pope.

In 1947, Pio predicted the election of a "foreign" pope who would resign the papacy and die in his home country.

I was just flipping through a book I have on Padre Pio and found a quote: "In the spiritual life one must always go on pushing ahead and never go backwards; if not, the same thing happens to a boat which when it loses headway gets blown backwards with the wind."

The Shroud of Turin has the wounds in the wrists. 25 posted on 6/16/02 12:27 PM Pacific by Codie

Interesting.

The Shroud is probably the only Roman "relic" the authenticity of which I am willing to consider might possibly be legitimate... it's purely conjecture, but I'm willing to consider the possibility that the Glorification of the Incarnate Shekinah might have left "afterburns" on the fabric in question. Is the Shroud genuine? I dunno, and I don't intensely care. But it's certainly an interesting piece of fabric, IMO.

Of course, if "the Shroud of Turin" really is the Burial Shroud, then "stigmata" of the hands is either a fraud or a medical curiosity... not truly "stigmata".

I don't get how stigmata appears in the center of the palm, since crucifiction, necessarily, involved piercing the wrist. I musta missed something.

I have a copy of Ruffin's book with me right now. On page 150 (end of Chapter 12) it says:

When asked why his wounds were in the center of his hands and not in the wrists...Padre Pio replied, "Oh it would be too much to have them exactly as they were in the case of Christ."
