The Scent of Padre Pio, the Odor of Sanctity
Padre Pio gave off a captivating scent – not all could smell it, only certain privileged people. Padre Pio’s perfume could have different strengths and fragrances.
It wasn’t something constant, and it could increase drastically or disappear at a moment’s notice. Some of his most devoted followers even asked Padre Pio directly about the scent.
Padre Pio answered that it was a gift the Lord had given, not as a benefit to himself, but as a way to draw other souls to God.
The Scent or “Odor of Sanctity” primarily came from the blood from the stigmata – Even today, years after his death, those who call on Padre Pio in prayer may, at times, feel his presence through that perfume.
