On Sunday, a group of those inspired by Padre Pio began reading the entire Bible at key places in the life of the saint of Pietrelcina. They will continue to do so until the Vigil of Pentecost on May 22.
The group is making stops at San Giovanni Rotondo, the Church of St. Mary of Graces, the cell where he lived his last years, the church and crypt of St. Pio and at the Home for the Relief for the Suffering.
According to SIR news agency, the initiative is being promoted by the Capuchin Friars Minors of San Giovanni Rotondo in collaboration with RAI Vaticano, Tele Radio Padre Pio and UNITALSI.
Tele Radio Padre Pio will broadcast the event, making it available via satellite to three continents.
