Jubilee Year 50th anniversary of the death of Padre Pio and first centenary stigmatization of San Pio da Pietralcina

The first jubilee concerns precisely the centenary of the stigmatization of Padre Pio da Pietrelcina, which took place on the morning of September 20, 1918 in the choir of the church of the Capuchin convent of San Giovanni Rotondo.
On the other hand, the other anniversary is linked to the 50th anniversary of Padre Pio's blessed transit , which took place in San Giovanni Rotondo, at 2.30 on 23 September 1968 at the age of 81. Naturally, to underline the two Jubilee anniversaries, a great organizational machine has already been set in motion, aimed at gathering, once again, the spiritual heritage that this humble Capuchin friar left to the Church and to the world.
