We All Know Padre Pio, But Who Is St. Leopold MandiÄ‡?
The bodies of two saints now lie on view in the Vatican at the request of Pope Francis for the Jubilee of Mercy.Â One is Padre Pio (St. Pio of Pietrelcina)Â who is the world-renowned stigmatic priest from Italy. The other is St. Leopold MandiÄ‡. Pope Francis asked the Capuchins to bring the relics of St. Padre Pio and St. Leopold to Rome for AshÂ WednesdayÂ and for the commissioning of the â€œmissionaries of mercy.â€
