"Padre Pio died right on the cusp of the "Renewal" movement which has subsequently swept the Church. One wonders what a man who so reverently loved the mass would have made of the "new" mass, particularly as it exists in the US."
I read years ago that he requested a Papal permission and was granted permission to say the Mass as he always had said it when the changes were started.
Thank you for posting this article. There is a Padre Pio Shrine in Barto, PA, if any are traveling near there this summer.

Really? Where is Barto anyway? I live in NJ, but I work in PA and wouldn't mind visiting if the opportunity presented itself.
