Padre Pio, relics of whom, including his mitten, will go on display in Limerick this evening
Speaking to the Leader, organiser Fergal Golden said that there are number of relics touched, worn, and blessed by Padre Pio on display.
According to Mr Golden, there are three distinctions of relics. First-class relics are parts of the Saint’s body, so a mitten that was worn on his left hand, and a heart bandage when he bled from a side wound are on display.
Second-class relics are items worn by a Saint, such as a Habit, and third-class relics are items touched by a Saint.
