MANILA, Philippines – Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu celebrated Padre Pio’s birthday by remembering her time in Italy.
Earlier today, on her Instagram account, Kim posted photos of herself in the Padre Pio Church in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, when she visited in 2019.
“I remember the first time I visited the Padre Pio Church in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, where his body is laid,” Kim said.
A follower of Padre Pio, Kim said she was very grateful to hear Mass and to see the Father’s relic up close.
“As a devotee, I am very grateful to hear Mass and even to see his relic up close. It was a feeling I will cherish forever, ”she said.
“I spent hours and hours in the surroundings wherever I go, I felt his holy presence, this time I had so many questions in my head that I saw a saying in a wall in front of me where I was (sitting) it said, ‘All the things that we have prayed will not be given to us there. It takes time, or there is more than we prayed for. Pray, hope and don’t worry, ”she added.
She advised her disciples to come closer to God and she hopes that the life of Padre Pio inspires theirs as well.
“Be closer to God and may the life of Saint Padre Pio inspire you to follow and honor Jesus,” she said.
