"Pray. Hope. Don't worry. God is merciful and will hear your prayers."
~St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Padre Pio, also known as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina was a friar, stigmatist and mystic and has been venerated as a saint of the Catholic church. Born Francesco Forgione, he was given the name of Pius (Pio) when he joined the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin.
Padre Pio became famous for exhibiting stigmata for most of his life, thereby generating much interest and controversy. He was both beatified in 1999 and canonized 2002 by Pope John Paul II.
Known as the patron saint for mystics and psychics, we've created a candle in his honor. Our St. Pio of Peitrelcina is lightly scented with Rose essential oil to reflect his deep love and devotion of the Blessed Mother. This candle is crowned with Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and Star of Anise.
St. Pio of Peitrelcina can only be purchased at Strange Brew, located at 2703 Elmwood Avenue, Kenmore, NY 14217, or through our website here.
As always, 25% from the purchase of this candle through our website will be donated to a charitable cause. If you have a particular charity in mind, please send us a message once you've placed your order and we'll make sure your donation is sent there, otherwise we will pick one for you. Donations are made every Monday night and posted on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
***Candles burn best (and longest), when you allow a wax 'pool' to extend completely to the glass, otherwise your candle will tunnel straight down and the life of your candle will diminish greatly. Ceiling fans and floor fans can also affect the way your candle burns.**
