The_Nativity_StoryMade in 2000, this movie was in preparation for the promotion of Padre Pio’s life in which at the time of its making, the Stigmatist has already been proclaimed as a beati. Two years later, the Saint was canonized by John Paul II and took only 7 years for the whole canonization process to be complete. This is the movie which tells the story of the true man we now call Padre Pio. Unpretentious and as it is, it is also about the story of the true nature of his sainthood, spoken in Italian and subtitled in English. Starring Sergio Castellitto as Padre Pio, directed by Carlo Carlei. The poor Italian peasant boy Francesco already has visions of Jesus and Mary as a child, but the Devil visits him too. He, Francesco, is quite certain that he will become a priest. After entering the Capuchin Order it becomes clear that Padre Pio (his new name) has powers which can not be explained rationally: he heals the sick, knows the names, problems and future of complete strangers. His prophesies the then unknown young Karol Wojtyla that he will become Pope one day. Padre Pio’s charity and extatic prayers make an great impression on the people. In 1918 the Wounds of Christ appear on his hands and feet- Padre Pio carries the stigmata. His followers multiply, and the cult that grows up arround him makes his holy order and the Vatican uneasy. Many within the church consider him to be an hysteric or a trickster, since he only shows his wounds the one time when they first appeared. Padre Pio suffers reprisals, he is no longer allowed to carry out his role as a priest. The ordinary people however continue to believe in him and his miracles. Just before his death in 1968 there is a reconcilliation with the grand Visitator of the Vatican, who recognises him as a Saint.

    Father Pio, Please remember us. You said before your death that you would be able to do much more after death. I pray for you that God through His Dearly Beloved son, the King of Divine Mercy, would forgive any thing against you. Please Father Pio, Remember us, and my son who I named after you. God be Praised.
