Pietrelcina, The Caphel of Saint Francis
Padre Pio da Pietrelcina: The Caphel of Saint Francis.
That small hut for me became a real small church”: these words were said later on by Padre Pio. Just right in the place where there was the small hut of hay, Mercurio Scocca, childhood friend of Padre Pio, lived in the large farm near that of Padre Pio’s family in Piana Romana. In 1958, there began the construction of the church dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi. It is now a large shady street with pine trees which brings one to this place dear to Padre Pio, and destination of more and more numerous pilgrims.
