Thanksgiving With Padre Pio and St. Michael

Monte Sant'Angelo
November, 1995
Thanksgiving often brings back memories of years ago when I took my then two sons to San Giovanni Rotondo for a Padre Pio pilgrimage.  (We were stationed in Naples, Italy, and my husband was sent to the U.S. for a time.)  While there, we worked in a side trip to Monte Sant'Angelo, a nearby sanctuary where St. Michael the Archangel once appeared to a bishop.  The site of the appearance, a cave, now holds a beautiful chapel, down a long set of stairs.  In the photo above, the boys are pictured at the entrance to the steps descending to the St. Michael Chapel.
