          Rome, 13 (NE) Under the name «Padre Pio», a cd-rom about the life and works of Father Pio of Pietrelcina was recently put to sale in Italy. The compact disc is the first one carried out in Italy about the capuchin friar, and it narrates the Venerable friar's life with numerous interviews and inedited pictures. Father Pio´s life is a testimony of sacrifice taken with happiness, of prodigies carried out with detachment and with humility, of intense prayer, of the apostolate of the reconciliation of thousands of penitents who made long lines to be confessed by him, as well as of virtuous life already proclaimed by the Church.

          The great example of Christian life manifested along the life of the capuchin friar attracts every year thousands of devotes to the Sanctuary of San Giovanni Rotondo where the religious man is buried. In view to the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000, it is expected that an unprecedented number of devotes pilgrim to this sanctuary in the region of Foggia, Italy. On December last year, nearly 30 years after God had called him to His presence, the Holy See recognized the heroic virtues of who had received in his body the stigmas of Our Lord.
