The purpose of this ministry is to encourage people to pray the Rosary, learn more about St. Padre Pio’s spiritual life, his love for the Blessed Virgin Mother Mary and Our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave him the gift of the stigmata. He also received the gift of reading souls in confession and converted a multitude of people. He also had the gift of bi-location, where he would be seen in two separate places at the same time. Through his intercession many miracles have happened throughout the world and also here at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Sarasota, FL.
