Saint Padre Pio, a 20th century Italian priest known for his piety and powerful preaching as well as receiving the stigmata, the bleeding wounds of Christ, on his hands and feet.
He is the patron saint of adolescents as well as stress relief. Padre Pio was canonized by Pope John Paul II and his Feast Day is celebrated on September 23.
St. Padre Pio is sewn up in a linen/cotton blend, with felt and hand stitched detailing in the halo and face. His face and hair are made with 100% merino wool felt, resists pilling and will stay soft!
He is made to last and is sure to become a treasured part of any child's collection. Would make a great First Communion, Baptism, or Patron Saint feast day gift!
