That certainly is fascinating, and if anyone has a link I would appreciate it as well. The more I learn of St. Pio, the more he amazes me :-)
Well I'd love to have a link, too, and would be happy if someone could find one. Padre Pio was truly a man of God.
If you are still doubting the prophecy how about considering this tidbit on top of the 18 May 1920 birthdate of JPII correpsonding to the largest partial solar eclipse of the century, and on top of the extremely rare "hybrid" solar eclipse (Saros 129 series eclipse) on the 7th day after his death (meaningfully NOT the day of his death), the day of his funeral; so how about this tidbit which seems to also correspond to St. Malachy's prophetic puzzle "De Labore Solis" ("From the labor of the Sun"):
Krakow, Cardinal Wojtyla's pastoral diocese, is also the place where Copernicus toiled and labored on his theory that the Sun was the center of the solar system.
