Rare Footage of St. Padre Pio’s Last Mass (He Died a Few Hours Later!)

St. Padre Pio is one of the greatest saints of the 20th century. Known for his deep devotion to Christ, holiness, and wise counseling, he was also a wonderworker, with reports of healing, soul-reading, stigmata, levitation, and even bi-location.

Advanced in age, in the 1960s his health began to deteriorate. On September 21st, 1968, the day after the 50th anniversary of him receiving the stigmata, he suddenly started to feel very tired. He was supposed to offer a Solemn Mass the next day for pilgrims but asked his superior if he could do simply a Low Mass. Though his superior initially granted his request, the huge crowd of pilgrims who had come led him to change his mind.

Weak and fragile, Padre Pio offered a Solemn Mass. Little did he and those present know, but it would be his last Mass. In fact, he’d be dead within just a few hours of finishing.

That night, he laid down even weaker, and it became clear to those with him that he might be reaching the end. He made a confession, renewed his Franciscan vows, and mouthed “Hail Marys” clutching his rosary. By 2:30 am, he was dead.

Here are some clips of St. Padre Pio’s last Mass:

St. Padre Pio, please pray for us!
