Thank you for posting these additional details. The stories surrounding St. Pio are filled with extraordinary gifts and charisms, yet he remained a simple and humble servant.

What's interesting to me in this Year of the Priest is to see how these great saints gave such incredibly holy service as simple parish priests.
Of course, the Cure d'Ars is another one who spent long hours in the confessional, had wonderful holy gifts, and yet lived and died the pastor of a tiny parish in a small, humble French village.
