OF ST. PIO OF PIETRELCINA CAPUCHIN PRIEST
Known as Padre Pio
ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
Monday, 17 June 2002
Brothers and Sisters, 1. It is a great joy for me to meet you again the day
after the solemn canonization of the humble Capuchin of San Giovanni Rotondo.
Dear pilgrims and devotees, I greet you with affection who have gathered in
Rome in such large numbers for this special occasion. I first of all greet the
bishops, priests and religious who are present here. I want to pay special attention
to the Capuchin Franciscans who in communion with the whole Church praise and
thank the Lord for the marvels he has worked in their exemplary confrere. Padre
Pio is an authentic model of spirituality and humanity, two characteristic features
of the Franciscan and Capuchin tradition. I greet the members of the "Padre
Pio Prayer Groups" and the representatives of the family of the "Home
for the Relief of Suffering", that great institution for the treatment
and the care of the sick that came forth from the new saint's charity. I embrace
you, dear pilgrims from the noble land that gave birth to Padre Pio, from the
other regions of Italy and from every part of the world. By your presence here,
you witness to how widespread are devotion to and confidence in the holy Friar
of the Gargano in the Church and on every continent. 2. But what is the secret
of such great admiration and love for this new saint? He is first of all a "friar
of the people", a traditional characteristic of the Capuchins. He is also
a saint who is a miraculous healer, as the extraordinary events which are part
of his life attest. However, above all Padre Pio is a religious who is deeply
in love with the crucified Christ. He even shared physically in the mystery
of the Cross during his life. He liked to link the glory of Tabor with the mystery
of the Passion, as we read in one of his letters: "Before exclaiming with
St Peter "Oh how good it is to be here', it is necessary first to climb
Calvary, where one sees only death, nails, thorns, suffering, extraordinary
shadows, abandonment and fainting" (Epistolario III, p. 287). Padre Pio
made his journey of demanding spiritual ascesis in communion with the Church.
The temporary misunderstandings he had with one or other ecclesial authority
did not put a brake on his attitude of filial obedience. Padre Pio was a faithful
and courageous son of the Church and in this situation following the shining
example of the "Poverello" of Assisi. 3. May this holy Capuchin to
whom so many people turn to from every corner of the earth point out to us the
means to reach holiness which is the goal of our life as Christians. How many
faithful in every social condition, from the most diverse places and the most
difficult situations hurried to ask his help! He knew how to offer them all
what they needed most, which they were often groping for without being fully
aware of it. He passed on to them the comforting and enlightening Word of God,
enabling each person to draw from the sources of his grace through his diligent
dedication to the ministry of the confessional and the fervent celebration of
the Eucharist. So it was that he wrote to one of his spiritual daughters: "Do
not be afraid to come to the Lord's altar to be fed with fleshoftheImmaculateLamb,because
no one will better reconcile your spirit than your king, nothing will warm it
more than his sun, and nothing will soothe it better than his balm" (ibid.,
p. 944). 4. The Mass of Padre Pio! It was an eloquent reminder to priests of
the beauty of the priestly vocation. For the religious and the lay people who
flocked to San Giovanni Rotondo even at the early morning hours, it was an extraordinary
catechesis on the value and importance of the Eucharistic sacrifice. Holy Mass
was the heart and the source of his whole spirituality: "There is in the
Mass", he used to say, "the whole of Calvary". The faithful who
crowded round his altar were profoundly impressed by the intensity of his "immersion"
in the Mystery, and perceived that "the Father" participated in his
person in the Redeemer's sufferings. 5. St Pio of Pietrelcina presented himself
to everyone - priests, men and women religious and lay people - as a credible
witness to Christ and to his Gospel. May his example and intercession spur everyone
to greater love for God and concrete solidarity with his neighbour, especially
those who are in greatest need. May the Blessed Virgin Mary, whom Padre Pio
called by the beautiful name of "Our Lady of Grace" (Santa Maria delle
Grazie), help us to follow in the footprints of this religious who is so beloved
by the people! With this hope, I cordially bless you who are present here, your
loved ones and all who are committed to following in the spiritual footsteps
of the beloved saint of Pietrelcina.
