The Pope Made a Surprise Visit to Pray at the Relics of Padre Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic
Last edited 8th February 2016

After having lunch, in his home in Santa Marta, Pope Francis went to St. Peter's Basilica to pray to the relics of Padre Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic. He was accompanied by Monsignor Fisichella. He appeared without warning, to the surprise of the hundreds of pilgrims who were in the basilica. Upon arrival, he stopped standing in front of the relics of Padre Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic. Then he sat down next to some nuns and friars and joined them in prayer as one with the pilgrims. Even he carried in his hand a picture of Padre Pio and read a prayer repeatedly. He was very concentrated during his prayer, while the visitors in the basilica, shocked to see the Pope there, did not stop taking pictures. When finished, he walked back home to Santa Marta.
