Relics of St. Padre Pio coming to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

On All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1, Father Joseph Tuscan, a Capuchin Franciscan priest, will celebrate the 5 p.m. Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Fort Wayne. Father Tuscan will use the chalice used by St. Padre Pio. After the Mass, Father Tuscan will give a presentation at 6 p.m. on Padre Pio and will show several of his relics, which the faithful can see and venerate.  Besides Padre Pio’s chalice, there will be a reliquary with blood from Padre’s Pio’s stigmata, a pair of his gloves and his altar cross.

As we celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints, we are blessed to have the relics of one of the saints of God whose life of holiness inspires us in our journey of faith and whose intercession helps us to live holy lives.
