Default Padre Pio

As some of you might know, today April 24, Padre Pio's body has been exposed to the public view in the cript of the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie at San Giovanni Rotondo until september 2009. Here is a picture of his incorrupt body that I found.



They placed a light silicon mask over his face since the experts judged that his face was not in very good conditions.

Rob,

Awesome photo. Thanks for posting it.

This quote: "L'attenzione dei mass media di tutta Europa, America e dell'Islam oggi è rivolta a San Giovanni Rotondo dove verrà esposta la salma di Padre Pio in una teca in cristallo nella cripta del convento di Santa Maria delle Grazie," from http://magazine.excite.it/news/8829/...ne-della-salma, states that in addition to the European and American media, the Islamic mass media was focused on this event as well. I wonder what their spin was.

Thanks for sharing. But I keep wondering, since the morticians reconstructed the facial part, is this still considered incorrupt or some sort of a miracle, does anybody has any idea?

An interesting article on bilocation.

''Without denying the fact of bilocation as a phenomenon, there is still some difficulty in explaining just what this event really is. By “bilocation,” do we mean that Padre Pio was present in two places at the same time? If yes, was he present both in his soul and in his body, or just in his soul? If just in his soul, was he materially present, having acted through a momentarily constructed physical body, or was his presence only a spiritual action visible only to the intellect ? ''

Fr. Sudac describes his own bi-location as really being in two places at one time, in body and soul in each place.

The soul is the form of the body, so the soul cannot leave the body other than in death. Body and soul are united as one person, so bi-location is not of the soul only. There can be no 'momentarily constructed physical body, for the same reason: the soul and body are thoroughly united as one person.
