Saint Padre Pio Mass and Blessing with Relic

Each month here in Bridge street we have a mass in honour of Saint Padre Pio.     It takes place at 10.30 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month.     At the end of that mass you will get an opportunity to bless yourself with a relic of Padre Pio.

The relic we have here in the Priory is one of Padre Pio’s gloves.    When he received the stigmata,  thousands of people came to see him, but many of those only came out of curiosity.    They just wanted to see his wounds and be able to say that they saw them.    So his Superiors gave him instructions to cover up the wounds.    The wounds on his feet were already covered by his shoes and of course the wound in his side was covered by his Capuchin habit.    He got a number of little gloves – light fingerless mittens- to cover the wounds on his hands.   It is one of these that we are privileged to possess here in Bridge Street and you can bless yourself with it.   If you are unable to attend you can call in to the shop next door to the church any day during the week and ask for a blessing.
