Saint Pade Pio and the Child Jesus

Saint Padre Pio had an overwhelming devotion to the Child Jesus. Throughout his life, we see photos of the Saintly Franciscan and images of the Child Jesus. In all these photos, it is very obvious from the way he holds these little statues, how much he loves the One Whom they represent. On a pilgrimage, we brought to San Giovanni Rotondo, in July 2002, two weeks

Overview

Saint Padre Pio had an overwhelming devotion to the Child Jesus. Throughout his life, we see photos of the Saintly Franciscan and images of the Child Jesus. In all these photos, it is very obvious from the way he holds these little statues, how much he loves the One Whom they represent. On a pilgrimage, we brought to San Giovanni Rotondo, in July 2002, two weeks after his Canonization, as we walked through the exhibit hall, which showed photos of his life, we noticed more and more photos of Padre Pio with the Child Jesus. There is also in that exhibit hall, right near his cell, a statue of the Santo Bambino, enclosed in glass, and a large blowup of the photo of Padre Pio holding the statue, which is right beside the statue.
We have also seen many photos of Padre Pio with children. There are books with him and children on the covers of the books. The look in his eyes gives away the great love he had for them. When we researched his life, we found that he gave children the same importance as Our Lord Jesus did. They were the future of the world, the future of our Church. He also considered them little Angels of God.
