Padre Pio in Piazza Petrolo

Updated: Oct 14, 2019

As we know, Padre Pio is one of Italy's most beloved saints. My nonna is constantly praying to Padre Pio and there's an unspoken sense of calm knowing I have his blessing. In the year 2000, a group of Castellammarese formed the committee called "La Speranza" and they collected donations from the locals in order to purchase a statue of Padre Pio that now sits in Piazza Petrolo. The statue was commissioned to "Pantaleone Arte Sacre" of Palermo and hand chiseled using the technique of "lost wax". The satue sits upon a marble base donated by mayor Giuseppe Ancona, and on the base reads:

"Two things in the world will never be abandoned, the eye of God that will see you wherever you go and your mother's heart that will always follow you" - Padre Pio
