Padre Pio statue for the garden in faux granite. He is the first stigmatized priest in the history of the Catholic Church and bore the Stigmata for over 50 years, the longest of any stigmatic. He spent long hours in daily prayer and suffered intensely, both physically and spiritually until he went to his eternal reward. He was said to have Supernatural powers and converted many people, he was able to read souls and was instrumental in many physical cures. There are testimonies that these cures are continuing to this day through prayers to Padre Pio. Plugged at base to allow for easy filling of gravel, stone or rock to provide extra weight. Comes with filling instructions of this hollow cast statue and how to care for your statuary.
