Orbiter's right, Bun. If Padre Pio had the wounds of Christ, he had them in the wrong place!
Stigmatas appear on the hands, the feet and the side where Christ was pierced. Take it up with the Pope.
The Shroud of Turin has the wounds in the wrists.

Thanks for the pix! I was listening to Cadena Cope, a radio station in Spain (owned by the local bishops' council, I believe) where they had a great discussion of this. It was a round-table and I tuned in after they had introduced the participants, unfortunately, so I don't know their names. But in any case,one of them was discussing the role of touch and physical existence in the Church, and he said that "saints are a way of touching God." A great way of expressing it!.
Another participant said that renewal is going to come to the Church, groaning under all of its problems right now, through this "choice for God" that the saints make.

No they want answers NOW or until they cause a flame war, whichever first.
They should write the Pope if they are this interested, you are right.
