“As a citizen of San Giovanni Rotondo and as a friar I think that the request to expose the heart of Padre Pio all year round is without logic. It is not a requirement that we have and no pilgrim has ever asked to pray on the heart of the Saint. Here in fact, his body is already in the sanctuary. I see a need to make controversy and this is very negative for the town of San Giovanni Rotondo: these are unsubstantiated requests that do no good for anyone “. The Minister of the religious Province of Sant’Angelo and Padre Pio of the Order of the Capuchin Friars Minor Maurizio Placentino says this to the Adnkronos, replying to the request of some committees to exhibit the relic of the heart of Padre Pio all year round.
