Francesco Forgione, later known as Padre Pio, (May 25, 1887 – September 23, 1968), canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2002 as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, was an Italian Roman Catholic Capuchin priest. Here’s the photograph when he celebrated the Holy Mass.


Bread of Life -Extracted from John, Chapter 6:


35 Jesus answered them (the Jews): I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever hunger; no one who believes in me will ever thirst.


37 Everyone whom the Father gives me will come to me; I will certainly not reject anyone who comes to me,


40 It is my Father's will that whoever sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and that I should raise that person up on the last day.


44 'No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me, and I will raise that person up on the last day.


45 It is written in the prophets: They will all be taught by God; everyone who has listened to the Father, and learnt from him, comes to me.


47 In all truth I tell you, everyone who believes has eternal life.


48 I am the bread of life.


50 …the bread which comes down from heaven, so that a person may eat it and not die.


51 I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.'


53 Jesus replied to them (the Jews): In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.


54 Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day.


55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.


56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in that person.


57 As the living Father sent me and I draw life from the Father, so whoever eats me will also draw life from me.


58 This is the bread which has come down from heaven; it is not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this bread will live forever.

Extracted from 1 Corinthians, Chapter 11:

23 For the tradition I (hereinafter referred to “Paul”) received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread,


24 and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, 'This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.'


25 And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.'


26 Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord's death until he comes.


27 Therefore anyone who eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily is answerable for the body and blood of the Lord.


28 Everyone is to examine himself and only then eat of the bread or drink from the cup;


29 because a person who eats and drinks without recognizing the body is eating and drinking his own condemnation.


30 That is why many of you are weak and ill and a good number have died.


31 If we were critical of ourselves we would not be condemned,


32 but when we are judged by the Lord, we are corrected by the Lord to save us from being condemned along with the world.
