Padre Pio's church

Photobucket

Under those arches was where I was standing when I took the previous post's photo. This is the Chapel dedicated to Padre Pio, the Italian monk famous for his his stigmata. On one occasion they displayed a pair of his bloodied gloves there. Too bad I didn't get a photo of the interior. I've heard mass here before and the chapel looks nice from the inside, very warm and inviting. As I suppose all chapels ought to be.

I like their brown tones, especially that brick arch! Warm welcoming churches are the best :D

Hi, thank you for sharing interesting places around the metro. I really appreciate you taking the time out to show what others (me including) fail to see.

Re. the chapel, this is not Padre Pio's chapel but that of the Holy Family. Padre Pio's is outside Eastwood complex and is proximate the main road.
