A Catholic magazine once found that far more Italian Catholics prayed to Padre Pio than to any other icon of the faith, including the Virgin Mary or Jesus.

I love St. Padre Pio, and as a Catholic will pray to Saints, but that statement is one of the more bizarre I have encountered.

I doubt that the central contention is accurate, although the statement with the detail, "A Catholic magazine once found ..." could be factually true. One can't ever take media's "findings" at face value.
