On June 14, 1921, a priest knocks at the convent in San Giovanni Rotondo.
He is in his early forties and wears a simple cassock, but he is no ordinary
priest. He is Bishop Raffaello Carlo Rossi, future cardinal and the Apostolic Visitor
sent by the Holy Office to secretly investigate Padre Pio.

The Bishop Inquisitor remains with the Capuchin Brothers for eight days,
interrogating and recording depositions. He also interviews Padre Pio himself
and examines the mysterious wounds of Christ that he bears on his body.

After gathering all the evidence, the Inquisitor sketches his own evaluation of
Padre Pio, which includes his reasons for believing that the stigmata are of divine
origin. He sends his report and the depositions to Rome, where they stay buried
for nearly a century. Now, forty years after the saint's death, these exceptional
documents are published in their entirety, thanks to the skillful research of
Father Francesco Castelli.

The documents in this book reveal every aspect of St. Pio's life from his amazing
supernatural gifts to his health. In his depositions, he admits, under oath, to the
phenomenon of bi-location and to other supernatural charisms, and for the first
time tells the detailed story of his stigmatization.
Also included are letters from his spiritual father and a chronology of his life.
Illustrated with black and white photos.
