Saint Padre Pio's relic to be on display in Bacolod
Some of the relics of St. Pio, fondly called as Padre Pio, is set to be on display in Bacolod from August 14 to 23. The churches and chapels that will house relics will be announced soon. The last time St. Pio’s relic was brought to the Philippines was in 2015. That’s why it would be great to witness the relic especially for Catholic devotees. When he was still alive, Padre Pio became well-known for his stigmata which he bore for 50 years without complaint, but joy in his heart. Other schedules will be on Aug. 29 in Greenbelt, Aug. 31 in Greenhills, Sept. 1 in Alabang Hills and Sept. 5 to 8 in Quezon City .
