One of the many toursit spots in Bohol is the Baclayon church. But aside from being one of the oldest stone churhes in bohol and in the country, Baclayon church is also noted for another “attraction”. You can see an image in one of the walls/pillars of the Baclayon Church.
It is the image of Father Pio.
Padre Pio, a humble Capuchin priest from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, was blessed by God in many wonderful and mysterious ways. The most dramatic was the stigmata. Padre Pio bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years!
Among his other gifts were perfume, bilocation, prophecy, conversion, reading of souls, and miraculous cures. People are still being cured through his intercession in ways that cannot be explained by medicine or science.
More important, if less spectacular, are the spiritual healings that take place in all parts of the world! Padre Pio is a powerful intercessor.
But no one can’t explain how the image of Fr. Pio appeared there. But it has started to be one of the things that can’t be missed in your Bohol tour.
