Catholics invited to make their ‘Pledge of Devotion’ to Padre Pio

Catholics are encouraged to venerate and profess their pledge of devotion to Padre Pio de Pietrelcina on September 14 to 23, 2017.

Devotees seeking healing and other petitions may visit the image from 8:00am to 5:00pm at the Radio Veritas chapel located at the second floor of Veritas Tower, 162 West Avenue cor EDSA in Quezon City.

Faithful who will pledge their devotion will receive a certificate and a small image of Padre Pio. Prayer request, petition, thanksgiving and other intentions of his devotees will be offered at the Holy Mass and rosary prayer at the Our Lady of Veritas Chapel. Also, their names will be announced in the different programs of the station.

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina was a friar, priest and mystic famous of bearing the stigmata for most of his life. A member of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, he was endowed with many extraordinary spiritual gifts and charisms including the gift of healing, bilocation, prophecy, miracles, discernment of spirits, the ability to abstain beyond man’s natural powers from both sleep and nourishment, the ability to read hearts, the gift of tongues (the ability to speak and understand languages that he had never studied), the gift of conversions, the grace to see angelic beings in form, and the fragrance which emanated from his wounds and which frequently announced his invisible presence.

They are encouraged to give a PHP500.00 donation pledge in support of the social communications ministry of the Catholic Church. Pledges can be picked up by the staff from the Religious Department along with their prayer intentions or deposit it to the following Radio Veritas bank accounts:
