Let me start by introducing to you Padre Pio.
Padre Pio is a Catholic Saint famous for bearing the Stigmata (marks corresponding to the wounds of Jesus' crucifixion) and his miracle works. There are literally thousands of accounts that speak of his healing gift.
One of the most famous of Padre Pio's healings that got me, is that of a blind girl who had no pupils, from Palermo Italy named Gemma DiGiorgio. When she was seven, a nun took it upon herself to write Padre Pio on her behalf, and received a note saying that the girl should be brought to Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotundo.
That's exactly what Gemma's grandmother did: brought the girl to see the famous monk. Padre Pio heard the child's First Confession and gave her, her First Communion — then made the Sign of the Cross on her eyes. After the blessing, Gemma was able to see.
(I have read of Gemma's story from "Michael”, a journal of Catholic Patriots.).

Padre Pio is indeed a man of God and has been a devoted servant.
We are truly blessed to have been given a chance to visit the Padre Pio Church in Libis.
Upon entering the Church, we saw the walls adorned with chronicles of some of the numerous miracles attributed to him and thousands of petition letters seeking help and mercy, neatly stocked in piles.
It is a solemn place to be one with the Lord. And it is perfect for your young ones, the church has an area meant specially for children, with doves flying around freely.
It is really a very good place to teach kids of God's love and mercy.
