Saint Pio - The Scent


I was at a Padre Pio day in a religious centre in Clonfert Galway, Emmanuel House of Prayer. The day began with prayers and a talk. They had a relic of Saint Pio there.

After the talk they put on a cd about the life of Saint Pio. The very second the video began I got a scent. My daughter was beside me and I asked her if she noticed the scent but she said no.

The man doing the day (Eddie Stones) asked after a while if many had got the scent. I would say 10-20% of the people there got it. I got the scent right up my nose - no doubt about it at all - not just a vague whiff.

I met Eddie another time and asked him if he had expected it - he said they had not. He is a healer. He is there about 20 years under the permission of the bishop. It was the site of a very big monastery.

They also have a relic of Saint Faustina the Polish nun. She advocates the Mercy Chaplet. Most people who receive the blessing from her relic are 'struck down'. It is a most unusual experience.

You don't feel any panic you seem to float to the ground. I have had it a number of times now.

They also have a really nice circular oratory which is very peaceful.

I believe St Faustina brought my daughter's fiancee through a serious operation. I was in the chapel holding her relic as he was on the table. He had a remarkable recovery. I can only give one explanation. My daughter was offered a scholarship while I was there another time praying for her health. It wasn't what I asked for but...

What a beautiful experience to have! I know of both Padre Pio and Sr. Faustina and have often prayed to Padre Pio and occasionally recite the Mercy Chaplet. I had Padre Pio appear to me once, and it was a very humbling experience for me.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience!
