Philippines: Padre Pio Church in Libis, Quezon City

I guess each one one us has his/her own sanctuary — a place you go to when you just want to keep still and be quiet. Having to live in a city, I sometimes find it hard to even hear myself think! Even the gazillion Starbucks spread across Metro Manila does not provide a breathing space since they are usually crowded with students and professionals alike. And no, I am not a homebody, so my room does not count as a sanctuary for me. I like the idea of driving towards a certain place that is not home, but feels like home to me. I was looking for a place where I can stay for as long as I want until I am finally able to sort myself out. Believe it or not, I finally found my sanctuary…and surprise, surprise — it’s not a spa, it’s a church! :)

For some reason, my hubby and I are always drawn to stop by the Padre Pio Church in Libis, Quezon City. Actually, it is officially called as the St. Pio Chapel…but I am stubborn and prefer to call it a church. Hihihi! Why? Because I think it is too grand to be called a chapel. When I first went there, I immediately appreciated its clean and simple facade, which was some sort of a replica of the church where Padre Pio has carried out his mission for many years — the Church of Our Lady of Grace in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy. Here, take a look at how similar they look:

When I entered the church, I was awed at how beautiful the interiors are. You can really see that every nook and cranny of the place was well thought of. In fact, it is the only church I’ve been to that has thoughtfully created a glass-enclosed room for families with small children. They call this special room as the Calandra Room. The glass was put there to minimize the racket that small children unintentionally make while inside the church.  Isn’t that nice?

Right on top of the Calandra Room is the Bishop Jesus Sison Memorial Hall. I think this is some sort of an audio-visual room; but on Sundays, since the church is really packed, they also allow churchgoers to go up there and participate in the Holy Eucharist by watching the celebration through a big white screen. Just like the church, this place is also air-conditioned.

There’s also a small outdoor area just behind the church, which is again thoughtfully equipped with wall fans, air coolers, tables, and chairs. There, you can also light candles on designated areas. You wouldn’t miss this part of the church, which they call as the Rev. Fr. Alessio Parente Patio, because you have to pass through this place on your way to the comfort room. And, to my delight, there are alcohol pumps right outside the toilets so that everyone can disinfect their hands after doing their thing. I am so happy with the people who thought of putting a disinfecting station in the church because even the biggest malls in Manila don’t give out alcohol for free! Oh, there’s a vendo machine there, too! Amazing!

Right next to the vendo machine is a glass door that leads you to the little store that sells anything and everything Padre Pio — from rosaries, to prayer books, to statues, to stickers, to magnets, etc. I just want to share with you that among all the things I bought there (there are quite a lot already), my favorite is a collection of Padre Pio books written by Fr. Marcellino Iasenzaniro. It has three volumes and basically the books talk about the personal experiences of people with Padre Pio and the answered prayers / miracles that they obtained through his intercession. It is such a blessing to read these books:

Lastly, they also have a special place for the church’s collection of angel figurines and live birds. They call this place the Garden Angel Aviary, and it is located at the right side of the church.

Truly, it is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever been to in my entire life. I suggest that you take the time to go there while there’s no Mass going on so you can read all the testimonials of Padre Pio devotees that are framed and hanged on the church walls. You can also write Padre Pio a letter and drop in one of their special boxes. I have personally obtained an answered prayer days (yes, days!) after I wrote to Padre Pio, my greatest intercessor. You can read about it here.

Now that we are based here in Paris, France…I find myself always missing my little sanctuary in the Philippines. I dare say that the Padre Pio Church in Libis is not just a place of worship, but a place where one can commune with his soul and with his God.

The chapel (“church” to you ;) ) is really great! In my book, it’s one of the best places to go for a spiritual experience. The Fr. Parente Patio (and the chapel near it) is especially a good place for finding that solitude you need :)

Some notes:

* The reason they can’t call it “church” is that only parishes and cathedrals (and any “higher” churches) can use the term “church”; a lesser church or any such church privately-built can only be called a “chapel”. I know, Catholic bureaucracy :-|

* There’s a similar “children’s room” in the newly-opened chapel at the SM Megamall. Don’t know if you’ve been there. The children’s room is discreetly placed near the entrance, to the left of the altar. The new Mega chapel, I think, opened just a few months ago. You may also want to check that out, too.

* Have you seen the video “The Last Mass of Padre Pio”? (I think they’re selling DVDs of it at the Padre Pio chapel.) I haven’t seen it myself, just saw excerpts from a TV documentary I saw…so I learned, the mass took place just one day before Padre Pio died :( And the excerpt I saw showed him to be so frail he had to be assisted by other priests to descend the altar. It’s such a moving scene.

Hi Monette,

I was reading your blogs and believe it or not i was getting goosebumps while reading it. I saw the feature in Rated K last Sunday (Sept. 13, 2009) my wife is the one watching tv then and I am listening music in my iPod and the Rated K feature caught my attention. Then yesterday my wife and I go to Libis immediately and you are absolutely right! The place was very very very nice “yong tipo bang makakalimutan mo lahat ng problema mo pag nandon ka at ayaw mo ng umalis”. I think I found a new friend in Saint Pio and a new friend again in you, because we both have the same faith in Him. Please contact me if it is ok with you my e-mail address is and my ym id is y2k_wiz. I’ll be expecting to hear from you soon. Have a nice day and God Bless.

Hi Pao!

Thanks for the notes! I’ve learned a lot…specially about Catholic bureaucracy…hihihi! :)

I wish I can visit the chapel in Megamall, but since I am on the other side of the world right now, I will have to wait until I get back home. Yes, Philippines is still my home…and despite the pollution, traffic, and corruption (sigh), I still miss it everyday.

I have to go and see where I can get the video you mentioned. It’ll be interesting to finally get to see Padre Pio in action. I am always intrigued why his Masses last for hours and hours…and they said that he’s really in pain during the Consecration part because he relives Jesus’ suffering at the Calvary every time he says Mass. And to take all that for 50 years??! My, my, my… :0

I’m happy you share my love for that little chapel in Libis. Say a prayer for me when you visit there, ok? I terribly miss that place. :(

Hi! I have always been fascinated by the many amazing stories about Padre Pio. Thus I was so happy when I heard and read that there is a shrine here in Libis dedicated to the saint. I’ve been working here in Libis for the past five years but have no idea whatsoever where to find the exact location of the shrine. Could you kindly help me out on this? Thanks

Hi Lynn,

The exact address of Saint Pio Chapel is RER Compound 188 E. Rodriguez Jr. Ave. (C-5) Bagumbayan, Libis Quezon City, Metro Manila 1110 Philippines. Please refer to this like for the direction and map: see you there and God Bless :)

If you’re commuting: you can take the MRT and stop at the Ortigas Center station. Walk to Robinsons Galeria and then take a bus going to Rosario (Pasig) or Taytay. Tell the bus driver you’re stopping at Rosario or C5. Stop at Rosario Junction (just after the overpass) and then cross the street. Take a jeep going to Citibank or Cubao. Stop when you see Honda Pasig and Floor Center…the Padre Pio Chapel is just between these two establishments (there’s a signboard with Padre Pio’s head shot on it :) Fare for both the bus and the jeep are just the minimum fare.

You can also try stopping at the Araneta Center-Cubao MRT station and take the Citibank/Rosario jeep…just that, I don’t know where in Araneta Center you can find the jeepney terminal :( I usually take the jeep from Eastwood going to Cubao, not the other way around.

Hello Monette,
I inform you that there is a Padre Pio prayers group in Paris.
It is animated by cappucini.
We pray the first saterday of each month.
I will not go for the two next months (because in november I will be in San Giovanni Rotondo with 20 others persons coming from France and 30 persons coming from Italy, and in october I will be in Italy to finalyse the coordination of this trip)
In june, I was in Doha for my job and I attended in a philippine mass. It was beautiful.

Hi Monette,

I guess the greatest miracle that everyone’s been praying for is change: change in your heart and soul. We have to change for good so that Padre Pio will bless us and hear our intercessions….How can our Lord hear our prayers if we will not change for good and live a simple life? I know everyone needs a miracle, but for me, the greatest miracle is change!!

Hello! I’m Italian, and I was surprised to learn that there is a chapel dedicated to Padre Pio over in the Philippines. Well, it seems far away from Padre Pio’s homeland, but I think despite their physical distance from one another Italians and Filipinos have a lot in common in a cultural sense! So I was wondering: does Padre Pio have a big following in the Philippines?


Comment from Angelita Corona
Time: November 19, 2009, 9:03 pm

I was blessed to join a pilgrimage to the Shrines of Italy last September. Included on the itinerary was a visit to San Giovanni Rotondo to view the uncorrupt body of St. Pio. I was ecstatic and tears welled in my eyes as I prayed and viewed St. Pio whose peaceful countenance only confirmed that He is now in the bosom of God Almighty. He had his resurrection after much sufferings, just like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My devotion to St. Pio began when my family and friends visited the chapel in Eastwood which is under the custody of Mr. Rodriguez (can’t remember his first name) whom we met then. He told us the long mystical story about how he started to build a shrine and got to be the custodian of St. Pio’s many relics.

As I entered the chapel, I felt POWER inside it.

As a reply to Emilia’s question if there is a big following in the Philippines, I must say there should be by now, because Mr. Rodriguez and his group are travelling all over the Philippines promotiong the devotion to St. Pio.

I came across your blog and very inspiring indeed. Thanks for this blog as this will surely help in encouraging devotions to a great saint our St. Pio.

hello!im also one of the devotees of Padre Pio. I make it a
point to pray his novenas everyday. I’m planning to see the St. Pio chapel this month. As im reading the comments in your blog, i cant help but cry. Cry because Padre Pio is so great that he helps a lot of people. Im one of them actually. I started my devotion just last November 2009. Believe it or not, Padre Pio answered my prayer that time in just one month. I prayed so hard for him to save my father in-law in Stage 4 Lung cancer. My faith did not faltered and i just trusted the Lord for it. Dec. 18, 2009 when his PETscan result was released, i was not surprised about how Padre Pio did it. He cured my father in law. and he changed my life. I promised him to share his words as long as i live. One more testimony that i wanna share to you is when a friend of mine was 2 months pregnant. Her ultrasound result shows that there is no embryo present in her womb. Her OB gyne told her that if in two weeks time still no embryo present, she’ll have a force abortion or “raspa” in tagalog. My friend told me about her case and i told her to pray for Padre pio and i too, prayed hard for it. On the second ultrasound there was already a heartbeat of the embryo. I know Padre Pio will grant it as long as you say it deeply and also make a change. A change to be a better person, a better christian.
For prayers and special intentions for Padre Pio, please email them to me at I will include them to my novenas everyday to Padre Pio,The most sacred Heart of Jesus, Our Lady, Mary Mediatrix of All Graca in Lipa and to St. Monica. I would love to hear from you.
I will do what i promised to Padre Pio.

I am based in NJ, USA and my family drive up to Barto, PA to visit his shrine.. and I do have the “testimonies” series by Fr. Iansenzaniro, too! I feel blessed to have found an intecessor in P. Pio and have since grown spiritually. I have come to understand God’s will for each of us and have found happiness with the realization that has dawned on me reading the books.

Hi, it is so nice reading all your testimonies here. I am so glad I found this site of Ms. Monette. I too had experienced a great miracle. Padre Pio granted not only petition, but petitions! I could say that I am not so religious but I do believe, and from then on, I became a great follower of Padre Pio. Sometimes, I cannot attend mass in Libis, I feel so lonely and sad. Iba talaga pakiramdam ko pag di ako nakasimba sa Padre Pio Church, as Ms Monette called it. Yes, I call it church too!! Pagpasok pa lang sa church, I feel something na parang naka-embrace agad si Padre Pio sa kanyang followers. And never na nagsimba ako na hindi ako umiyak. Ayokong umiyak but my tears just keep on flowing. Kahit ngayon nagbabasa ako ng testimonies nyo, my tears are falling. Believe me, Padre Pio is such a great patron. I have referred him to one of my friend, actually not just a friend, former boss actually. And you know what, she called up saying “it worked!”. Nung sinabi nya yun, umiyak ako nang umiyak, i couldn’t help it kasi I know I fulfilled a promise to Padre Pio. To share him to others who needed help. At meron pa….hope I could meet you all guys, in Padre Pio Church. We love you, Padre Pio!

I live in Imus, Cavite and I just dropped once at the chapel in Libis,
QC. I prayed inside the annex building at the right side of the parking place. We are less than 10 persons inside. I hold the hands of St. Padre Pio and I really felt the warmness and I felt the trembling during the moment.
I still have to go back there with my wife once I am fully recovered
of my two successive cancer operation, the removal of rectum and anus and the other one is the removal of a large tumor under my small intestine they called elieum.
It was jsut recently the first was May 24, 2010 and the next
one was June 8, 2010. As I am writing this comment I am still
in a private room at De La Salle University Medical Center in
Dasmarinas, Cavite. This is my one month and 2 days. Tomorrow
I will be discharged. I felt that St. Padre Pio helps me during my
first 7 hours and my second 8 hours operations. I survived.

my mother is seriously ill. 5 years ago she was diagnosed with heart failure. today she is still here.
but last month we rush her to emergency again because she finds breathing very hard. when we are inside the taxi with my father
i could barely hear the fainting sound of her breath. im so afraid. im so sad. i wanted to cry but i have to be strong.
4days after she was release from the hospital. but the doctors said we should be careful from now. because when this happens again
she might not make it anymore. now my mother is in our house. just siting there. wathcing tv. playing psp.
but you know i really felt sorry for her because she cannot do things she used to do. even climbing stairs is hard for her.
she cannot go to mall. she cant water her garden. when i got home i make sure that she never notice the disabilities her sickness made.
i talk. i laugh. we watch together. we play psp. when i have time i volunteer to cook, which she usually does.
i volunteer to water her plants. but when it,s night i feel sad. i feel alone. i want to cry. i pray. i ask if He hears me.
i just wanted my mom to be there when i got married. or see her grandchild from me. or to see her skin wrinkled or her black hair turned to white.
God can you hear me. im so depressed. please God allow her to be back to her normal life even just for another decades. please.

my friend says that i should try to visit the padre pio church. don’t know how to locate it since im just a homebody. im from Guadalupe makati. i like to just try. wondering if He can help me from my pain. they say faith only exist when there is no miracle… please help my mother..

good day ms.monette!

first and foremost i want to thank padre pio for leading me into your blogs about him. actually i was just surfing the net awhile ago to have some infos about the whereabouts of st.pio’s chapel when i accidentally clicked this link.

i’m so grateful after reading your blogs about your unexpected journey with padre pio. =) wish i could have the same exploration with padre pio.

-oh by the way ms. monette, me and my boyfriend is planning to visit st.pio chapel on december as our anniversary treat to each other. when i personally kneel infront of the relic that you had mentioned in your blog, i promise that i will include your name into my prayers.

i owe you a great thing, for without your blogs i shouldn’t be equipped with enough knowledge about our beloved saint.

thank you again ms. monette.=)

Hi Monette, I truly agree with how you described Padre Pio’s Chapel in libis. I also feel the same everytime I visit his place. It was introduced to me by I sales person in a religous store at Gateway, Cubao. Gladly, miracles in my life happened & continously happening. In my own simple way like sharing novena prayers, sharing the knowledge and experiences about Padre Pio I tried to help propagate devotion to him which eventually bring or increase our faith in God. I’m glad that some of my friends who had started their devotion also do the same in sharing & spreading devotion to Padre Pio. Lastly, Im so greatful to the person so had shared with me. Thank you Padre Pio for your love.

I’m so glad I found this website. Today is the feast of Saint Pio. Here in Cagayan de Oro City there is a statue of St. Pio infront of the old Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. I visit and pray to him when I attend mass. Today I brought him roses and lighted a big scented candle before I went to mass. The officiating priest, Fr Mike said mass in the new church and mentioned that today is the feast day of St Pio and told the people to visit the statue of St Pio after the mass which many did, and lighted candles. Fr Mike went to the statue and prayed and sprinkled holy water on the statue and on us. I cried because I felt St Pio was happy to see his devotees visiting him. Added to my happiness was to hear the plan of transferring St Pio to a better location which is the site of the altar of the old church, a holy site. Now he will be enshrined infront of the new church where people can visit him and pray. I’m happy to learn about the church of St Pio in Libis. I will visit him there soon and hopefully my sick sister-in-law can come too. So happy to read comments from devotees of St Pio – we share the love to the Lord and St Pio. God bless.

hi everyone…
we usually attend sunday masses at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help in 13th ave, Cubao, QC, when my kababayan mentioned about Padre Pio’s chapel…and from then on I’ve been itching to go to this chapel and i have been bugging them about going too…i hope this afternoon we will finally be able to attend the mass there…
i can’t explain what moved me that eversince i heard about the chapel i haven’t stopped thinking and wanting to go there until i finally found time to search the net for directions and mass schedules and so i came across this blog…
i am thankful…Padre Pio must have probably drawn me to this blog to find answers as to the address and schedule…
honestly tho…i am in desperate need for spiritual intercession and i am hoping and praying that Padre Pio will also help me…
please also include me in your prayers, novenas to him…
i am a devotee to Mama Mary and i pray the Holy Rosary daily upon waking up in the morning…
thank you for this informative blog…
May God bless us always thru Mama Mary’s and Padre Pio’s help…

Hi! The first time I heard about the chapel of Father Pio in Libis was when I told my friend Sarah that my nephew (Jahns) is suffering from Leukemia. She told me to bring my nephew there. The second time was when we were in this restaurant in Festival Mall. I was with my husband Ed and my nephew. We went there from the hospital in QC (where my nephew had his check-up) for lunch. There we met the very kind hearted and handsome Congressman Dan Fernandez of Laguna (who happen to know my husband because of the different sports activities in our subdivision) and he also told us to bring Jahns to Father Pio.
According to him, everything he asked thru Father Pio’s intercession was granted. The following Sunday, We did visit the Chapel and its true, its so solemn there and you will really feel the holiness of the place.
We know that my nephew is now healed. He was touched by the healing hand of Father Pio.
Thank you Father Pio.
We are scheduled to visit again the chapel this coming Sunday.
Please pray for my nephew….for his complete healing.
Thank you for sharing your blog to us.

My first time at the chapel last oct 10 was unforgettable. The fragrant smell while holding the hands of the statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus caught my attention. There was a long queue for Padre Pio after the mass so we ( i was with my 2 adult children ) just went to Jesus instead for our “whispered petitions”. I thought the statue was scented or someone beside me wore the fragrance so i passed it as an ordinary thing. But when we were on our way to the garden to see the other statue of St.Pio (facing the store), the fragrance was there again. This time i went closer to the ladies who just passed us to see if the fragrance came from them. No, they were not even perfumed. So i asked my son, who was close to me at the image of Jesus inside the chapel, if he smelled anything sweet while we were there. He said no. I asked my daughter who was walking beside me if she smelled anything nice or sweet or fragrant. She said no. I was filled with joy & just sat there in front of St.Pio praising & thanking God for the beautiful experience. The scent was not strong but very nice& calming, nothing like any of the perfumes or colognes i’ve smelled.
I told my husband of my experience & he said Padre Pio is known for sweet smell. I didn’t know that. I was inspired to go back to the chapel yesterday. I already attended the 6am mass here in our subd so my visit will be for private devotion & curiosity. I went straight to the Sacred Heart statue & went really close to Jesus subtly sniffing for traces of the fragrance, then i went to St.Pio, prayed & out in the garden keenly focused on what my nose will pick up. I didn’t have a third serving of the sweet smell. I finally went inside the store, bought some copies of the novena which i gave to my prayer group, and 3 beautiful roses for Jesus, Mama Mary & Padre Pio. They will see more of me there.
May God’s grace abound in us.

It is a very beautiful place. You can feel God listening to you as you pray. At times when you think or feel that you no longer know how to pray, for whatever reason, visit the chapel, it will settle your mind, quiet your thoughts and help you to refocus.

Thank you St. Padre Pio for the numerous blessings received through your intercession.

May the Lord continue to bless the families that have started and propagated the devotion to St. Padre Pio. I have seen the chapel growand its devotees swell. God bless you always.

we visited the place last 16 Nov. 2010, yes its a very nice and holy place to meditate. Of course I was so excited because i’ve already heard about the beauty of the place bec. of the my office mates who are frequently attending masses there. And very true as if all corners are in order. I was with my sisters/brod in law and two of them are suffering from serious illnesses. After praying we lined up at the place where you can touch the hands of Padre Pio. I experienced a wonderful feeling when i touched his hands and i cried, i cant explain my happiness. Of course, we promised we’ll be backed to attend the mass. My request was granted right there. I will bring my family and friends. again thanks to my friend who recommended to visit the place.

Hello there! many thanks for this post…yes, Padre Pio’s chapel is also my sanctuary…esp. when things got so difficult in my office, I use to just go down from my building and escaped to Padre Pio’s chapel until I feel okay…It seems that once you enter the chapel, you have a feeling that there is someone who is happy that you are there…And I miss it so much now when I resigned from my job…I miss the smell of roses whenever you come and pray..I miss Padre Pio’s presence there…Most of my important prayers were answered, esp about my job. Actually not just the important and urgent prayers but the fun ones too. Because of so much stress, I prayed that I can attend one of the fanmeetings of a Koreanovela actor that I really like to see out of the country. I did, in Singapore and never in my wildest dreams I hope to see that actor soon outside of Korea! And when I see him, I think of Padre Pio and it’s nice to know, Padre Pio got a fun side too…Ah missing him and the chapel!

Thank you Padre Pio for all answered prayers! In less than 3 months of daily visit to St. Pio’s chapel in Libis, through St. Pio’s intercession, the Lord has blessed my daughter with all the graces that she needed most during her “adventure” in New Zealand. We only prayed for a job but she was blessed with a good job from the number 1 company in Auckland.

Thank you Padre Pio for coming into our lives! Thank you to the people who prayed for my daughter.

We will remain devotees for the rest of our lives.

As every night I went to the office, I began curious and I was wondering when can I visit that church since our schedule is night shift till morning kinda felt tired and sleepy…and surprisingly one of my co worker asked me if I knew saint pio’s church since they already visited the church and they ask me if I want to go there??
and i said “YES”…they will accompany me to go to Saint Pio Church.
As I entered the door I was amazed how beautiful the church is..I could smell the scent of the roses and diffrent flowers..the big statue of St. Pio which I prayed and hold his left hand, lots of letters with prayers/request to him.
I thank God for knowing St. Pio Church, and someday I will bring my Family and my Mom to St. Pio Church.

Padre Pio and his Chapel in Libis really changed our lives, dati po hindi naman kami pala simba, pero iba talaga ang dating sa amin ng Chapel sa Libis, napakagaan ng pakiramdam, everytime nagpupunta kami doon. Actually every Saturday ang visit ko after office, half day lang kasi ako pag Saturday and before ako umuwi ng Laguna, dumadaan muna ko sa kanya, from Makati to Libis to Laguna, yan po ang routine ko every Saturday.

My first visit to His chapel was last September 19, 2009 and since then every Saturday na ko nagpupunta and minsan Sunday pag may time lumuwas ng Manila.

January 2, 2010 our first visit after New Year, humiling lang po ako na sana sa 2010 ay mabago ng kahit konti ang aming pamumuhay, matagal na rin kasi ako nagwowork (15 years na to be exact) pero ganon pa rin, halos sapat-sapat lang ang sinusweldo ko para sa pamilya and sa pang araw-araw na pangangailangan.

Saturday, September 4, 2010 – I can’t really imagine, nagpa bless ako ng brand new car, tinupad nya ang wish namin na mabago ang takbo ng buhay namin kahit konti lang, actually hind lang kokonti ang binigay nya, sobra sobra pa, nag resign na po ako sa dati kong work October 2010, ngayon full time na ko sa aming business and truly, he gave so many miracles to our lives, kaya ngayon sineshare lang namin ang mga blessings na natatanggap namin. Super thankful talaga kami Saint Pio.

Ngayon every Sunday na kami nagpupunta para magsimba, sineshare ko rin ang Chapel sa ibang mga nangangailangan ng miracles. God bless us all.

Last January of this year as promised to myself I bought a statue of Padre Pio after I was able to decide to consult another pedia surgeon for my daughter hernia .Padre Pio gave me courage to overcome the worries and fear of having our one yr old and 10 mos old daughter undergo operation On February 05, my daughter was successfully operated. Thanks you so much also for the pedia surgeon and the pedia anis who have helped me overcome my worries.I know they are god send .And now I know Padre Pio has been helping us our daily trials in life.thank you so much Padre Pio for your help.

I went there at 12nn.. i was surprised, mesmerized with the place, so quiet and at peace. when i was getting near the place i was teary eyed, but i controlled myself since i was with my 2 co workers who introduced padre pio to me. sobrang iba ung pakiramdam, ang gaan na parang gusto kong umiyak ng todo, gusto kong ilabas ung nasa loob ko para maging maluwag ang pakiramdam after. ibang iba talaga. as if parang bagong ako ung lumabas parang ganon. ang sarap ng pakiramdam to had a chance with padre pio.. bumili ako ng novena and sabi daily daw un idadasal.. ill start the prayer today…

I also experienced Padre Pio’s miracle, he healed me from a rare illness, the nerve at the lower center portion of my brain was damaged. I had difficulty walking and moving my arms and neck. The doctor told my husband that the damaged nerve can not function again. My feet and hands were trembling and it was so painful. A friend gave me a novena of Padre Pio and told me say the novena everyday. I was on sick leave for almost 3 months. In less than 2 months, I was able to walk and move my arms and neck again. Papa Pio performed a miracle me through a dream, he placed his hands on top of my head and he let me touched his wounds. Last May 12, I reported back to office. Last June 17,my family traveled from Davao to Manila purposely to visit and thank Our Lady, Regina Rosarii and Papa Pio. On June 19, my family attended the 12 noon mass at St. Pio Chapel in Libis.

Thank you very much Mama Mary and Papa Pio for giving me another chance to live a normal life again.

Thank You Lord! I found this site. Thanks Ms Monette and Mr Rollie B. for the very inspiring thoughts and experiences you’ve shared.

I am one of the millions of devotees of Padre Pio. Just want to share something; I’v read one time about his life since his boyhood…though i forgot some. He’s really a miraculous man of God. As far as I remember he performed his first miracle at the age of 13. I was so fascinated and that made me curious about him (that was way back in early 90’s – my college years).

“No Small Miracle”, Me and my wife been married for almost 6 years and still hoping and praying for a baby. Years come and go. Yet, we kept on knocking at Padre Pio’s huge photo in our calendar together with Our Lady of Perpetual Help to help us pray to God to grant us a baby.

Last December 2010, (1st wk)… When we were in Surabaya, Indonesia… What a BIG…BIG surprise! Really, an answered Prayer. My wife is carrying a healthy baby boy that time… No “preggy” signs or “morning sickness”. The Baby is already 5 months, even the Doctor (male OB) in Mitra Keluarga Hospital is quite amazed. He is also asking us for any signs… but only dizziness. Now, our baby boy is almost 5 months old.

Hopefully, when I get home my wish is to bring my family to Padre Pio’s Church in Libis.

Mga kapwa ko devotos, ilatag at ipagkatiwala niyo lang po sa kanya lahat ng ating hinihiling at Siya (Padre Pio) ang mas malapit sa Panginoon, siya ang gagawa ng paraan sa tamang oras at panahon. God bless us All.

Good day to all, i feel so blessed and thankful at naka attend ako ng mass during Padre Pio’s feast day.sobrang trapik akala ko di ko maabutan ang 12n mass,pero habang nasa jeep ako nasabi ko sa sarili ko “di ako pababayaan ni Padre Pio na di makaattend ng mass”,and unti-unting nag move ang mga sasakyan.sakto pagdating ko sa chapel the mass many things to thanks kaya gusto kong makapunta lagi sa chapel ni Padre first,wala talaga akong idea about Padre Pio (nakakahiya nga e, may brother pa naman akong priest) hindi kase ako wide reader.sori.pero bakit ba naman napakarami kong friends ang nag-aaya sa akin magsimba kay Padre Pio.sabi ko saan yun?sa libis nga daw.sabi ko sa sarili ko malayo sa place ko kaya di ako nakapunta.then, one time napagkuwentuhan namin ng twin sister ko,kase may nag-aaya din sa kanyang magsimba duon.napansin ko bakit laging nababangit sa akin si Padre Pio,naisip ko siguro may call sa akin na pumunta ako sa chapel niya.nauna akong nag visit then,na discover ko maraming pumupunta duon may mga sakit.naikuwento ko sa twin sister,di ko alam na siya pala ay 10 days ng suffering from severe menstrual pain.and her doctor said,if it is continous bleeding she might be undergoing an operation.kaya naisipan niyang magpunta kay Padre Pio the day before going to doctor.mahigpit niyang hinawakan ang kamay ni Padre Pio at nagdasal na sana ay huminto na ang menstruation niya at mawala na yun severe pain.pag-uwi niya ng bahay bago siya matulog nagdasal uli siya kase nararamdaman uli niya ang severe pain at lakas ng menstrual flow niya, sabi daw niya “sige na po,Padre Pio pagaling na ninyo po ako”.pag gising niya kinabukasan. Grabe, sobrang napakalaking himala,parang walang nangyari, wala sakit ni katiting siyang nararamdaman.wala ng menstrual flow parang gripong na off.immediately,she called me up at natatarantang nagkuwento.sabi ko para lalong kang makasiguro magpunta siya sa doctor niya for check-up.she went and the doctor said,…”you’re ok, nothing to worry. after a month she go back to her doctor for her monthly check-up and the doctor said, everything is normal…again,nothing to worry.hanggang ngayon di pa siya makapaniwala sa nangyari sa kanya.God is good talaga! Patnubay tayo ng ating Panginoon.Thank you.

Good day everyone..

Una kong nalaman about Fr. Pio,sa isang retreat house sa batangas,when my step-son had his recollection ang retreat sa school nila.May chapel si Fr.Pio dun and before the mass ipikilala samin si Fr.Pio at yung mga healings nya at sabi ng pari na lahat daw ng humihiling kay Fr.Pio ay natutupad kaya nagtry ako dahil namangha,humanga at naniniwala ako na pakikinggan nya ako,ipinagpray ko sa kanya na sana maaprove yung resident visa ng husband ko sa canada kasi during that time impossibleng maapprove dahil ginigipit kmi ng first wife nya sa documents for my stepson,pero after ng ilang months approved..sobrang saya ko at ng buong family gusto ko sanang bumalik para magpasalamat at humiling ulit ng favor sa kanya pero napakalayo,pero nabalitaan ko na may chapel sya sa Libis pero di ko nman alam kung saan kaya hinanap ko sa google at nakita ko tong page n to..this week makakapunta na ako kasi matagal ko n tlga gustong puntahan para magpasalamat…lalong lumalim ang faith ko sa PANGINOON at kay Fr. Pio after reading comments above..salamat po Fr. Pio..and God bless us all always..

Padre Pio is one of my favorite saints. My mom told me about his center in Eastwood and visited the place. It’s very peaceful there. That’s where I hear mass every week kahit malayo sa bahay namin. The mass goers are disciplined. The lectors, commentators, lay ministers are well organized. It’s my little place of heaven on earth.

Dear Ms. Analou,

Hi Ms. Analou, good day! I’ve stumbled upon this blog while searching for Padre Pio. And I’m so grateful & thankful to Ms. Monette for making this one & to everyone who shared their very powerful & amazing testimonies with Padre Pio.
Thank you & GOD bless you all! ^_^

Ms. Analou, I hope your now in good condition by now but if you still need further treatment, I highly recommend you to take Green Barley-a Total & Super Food which is also known as a “Miracle Food”. It was mentioned in the bible 37 times, was used for food & medicinal purposes. There are already many people who had experienced GOD’s miracle through green barley such as patients with cancers, mass, rare health condition & those who were in critical conditions in the ICU. Praise be to GOD they were all healed!
If you want to know more regarding green barley, you may visit this links–>

For more details, please feel free to contact me at my cp#: 09335425265.

I’ll pray for you tonight with the intercession of Padre Pio.
As his motto goes: “PRAY, HOPE & DON’T WORRY”.
BELIEVE na magaling na po kayo & be HAPPY! :)


Love & Light,

Green barley, can also be of big help to your mom rather than have her take synthetic medicines for her maintainance, it is the best natural alternative for her to regain her good health.

When I was reading all your stories about Padre Pio, I decided to take a visit since I am working in Eastwood, it’s just a walking distance for me. I was wandering around when I saw the eskinita to the old wooden replica of Padre Pio, I walk in and was looking around when I looked at him, he was like looking at me, and I feel strange, so I prayed in as far as 2 meter from him, then a lady went ahead of me, and hold his hands and prayed, I said to myself, maybe I should do the same then, when I held his hand, my tears came running and all I was able to utter to him was “Thank you” I was crying so much that I stopped when I noticed that there was a person behind me. I found peace after that incident. I never felt like flying before, at that time, I feel like flying and elevated from where I am standing.

Same day, Friday the 13th of April 2012

It’s payday and went to withdraw money to pay for my house rent, unluckily I got debited for 10K, I was talking to Padre Pio on my way to work as I need the money to be credited on monday, I remembered his words, Pray, Hope and don’t worry. I called the bank to report the said incident, and was informed that it will take 5-15 working days to have it credited back to my account. I was telling him, “Best Friend, Ikaw na bahala mag pray kay Lord ha.” then, I freed my mind from worrying. At work, I checked my Internet banking so I have a documentation of what had happen to my money. And Padre Pio heard my prayer, it was credited back to my account. I was so excited and happy this day so I decided to write this blog.

I saw a signage there and it says something like: don’t pray with your lips, pray with your heart. =)

Thanks Monette.

Thank you Padre Pio! I love you bestfriend!

Let me share to you a very touching and wonderful experience I had while attending Mass this afternoon at Padre Pio Church in Libis.
I promised a friend that I would send her a Novena and Holy Oil from Padre Pio.
After securing the Novena and the Holy Oil, my sister in law and I went to get some Holy Water. After that, we went to look for a place to seat. The main church was full of people so we went to the chapel. There we found a place where four people can seat. I asked my sister in law to stay there while I called my husband, my mother, my mother in law, my daughter and my son. Since only four people can seat, we asked my husband, my daughter, my mother and mother in law to take the seats.
My sister in law, my son and I stood near the door. There was an air-conditioner near the door so we stood there. The Priest who came all the way from Caloocan got caught in the traffic. I had some time to light some candle and pray for my intentions.
We went to stand near the door again. In front of the small chapel was a monitor so we can see and listen to the mass in the main Church.
I looked at the table neatly covered in white. Then I looked at the whole altar and saw a man standing at the right side of the altar. He was also patiently waiting for the priest. He was not moving an inch. I looked at his clothes and his feet. I noticed there was no shadow and his feet were glowing, somewhat floating.
I asked my sister in law who was standing behind me if there is somebody standing on the right side of the table. She answered “wala” or nobody’s there.
So I asked her to go to my place positioned her from an angle where I saw the man. Then she said now I see the man.
Just to make sure she was not bluffing me, I asked the lady beside me if there is somebody standing on the right side of the table. She said I do not see anybody. Then I positioned her to the same angle where I saw the man. As I held her, she was at first hesitant. I told her don’t worry I will not do anything to you. Just stand here, on my place and tell me what you see.
After a few seconds the lady exclaimed, I see Padre Pio. Suddenly a cold wind came out of my body. The lady, my sister in law and I had goose pimples.
Indeed I was right. I saw Padre Pio. He was attending the Mass with us.
Thank you Padre Pio for the wonderful experience. I know my prayers and intentions are answered. Thank you for the opportunity you have given me to see you.
As I promised, I will continue to be of service to others, to spread your Novena and help others pray for their intentions.
You have not failed me. You always answered my prayers.
I cannot thank you enough.
To Goya, I told you I will light a candle and pray for your husband. I know with Padre Pio’s apparition this afternoon, my prayers for your husband has been answered.
To all the people I prayed for and the intentions I asked, I firmly believe they have been answered.
Have faith, trust in the Lord with all your heart!

Thanks for this blog.. I really appreciate it. I heard about Padre Pio’s Church (chapel) as i call it too from my sisters and daughter who devotedly visited the church once in a week. So, when i went home last July, i asked my sister to bring me there. The experience i have upon touching his hands is unexplainable. i can feel the flesh of a live person. i shed some tears and from there, i know, my prayers were already answered. i was researching of Padre Pio’s life history as i contemplate and motivated to know him well. And i have the feeling, it was his works that drove me to know him more. Thanks to people who introduce Padre Pio to me. God Bless..

My supervisor knows about it and just told me this morning to go to St. Pio’s chapel in Libis and stories of Padre Pio’s and his gratefulness.

It was November 7 of this year, one morning when I was pouring my heart out in front of the image of Sacred Heart of Jesus, It was a time in my life that I need healing for my body, soul, mind and spirit. I was praying and begging with full of tears in my eyes for God to send me an angel to help me overcome the the heavy burden that I was carrying. I have this prayer book that I used to pray every morning and ask for intercession of many Saints. But that specific morning, I only prayed for the intercession of one Saint, St. Padre Pio. God in His great goodness did not only sent me an Angel but a Saint. That same day, God was telling me to visit his Shrine in Libis, So, I filed an undertime from work and attended the 5:30pm mass in Libis, Padre Pio was there to welcomed me. When I entered the Chapel, eventhough it was full of churchgoers, you can feel the serenity of the place. His image near the altar caught my attention, I just kept on gazing at him and just felt peaceful. After the mass, and I went on to touch his relic and his image near the altar. I cannot really find the words how to describe it but when I touched his hand, it’s as if I am being lifted off the floor, as if I am light as a feather. I know right then that my healing has begun. First my physical healing, as all my Lab Results are Normal! my SGPT and SGOT for my liver is back to Normal and my T3, T4, TSH are all Normal values as well, Praise God! Emotionally I am still a healing in progress but I know in God’s own perfect timing, He will grant me the desires of my heart of finding a good and righteous husband. When I am whole again and when my heart is ready to love. But I never felt more happier. God has opened so many doors and opportunities in my life that Blessings just keeps on pouring in abundantly into my life including my Family. All I can do is thank God for giving me powerful intercessors in heaven…Nanay Maria, Tatay Jose and Tatay Pio! Praise be to God! For God’s greater honor and glory! Tatay Pio, I know you will be there to welcome me to when I come and visit you again. I’ll be with Jerry. :) I love you Tatay Pio!

I was introduced to Padre Pio by my best friend Mat bec. she knows that i am carrying a heavy load and sabi niya Padre Pio will help me. The moment i stepped in the church, ibang-iba ang pakiramdam ko. Napa ka solemn ng atmosphere and i found peace inside me. It’s a miracle indeed. From then on, i attended mass regularly kay Padre Pio but what makes it more fulfilling is that I am attending mass with my whole family. Mabait talaga si Lord, through the intercession of Padre Pio, gumagaan ang bigat na dala ko at alam kong hindi niya ko pababayaaan. I will spread the word about the goodness of Padre Pio. Very inspiring ang mga testimonies na nababasa ko dito. I love u Padre Pio. God bless us all.

Padre pio is my guardian, if ever i have problems padre pio came in to my mind. Yes, i was with st. pio”s church in libis and how i wish to be back there but i am in cagayan de oro city right now.. i am inviting everyone if they have much time to visit the church at libis and you can experience the holy spirit is within. As he said ” he will not enter the door in heaven until all his spiritual children will arrive. May God bless Padre Pio!

I cried from the testimonials I read about St.Pio. I think I also receive his intercession. The first time I visited this church out of curiosity and word of mouth. The moment I entered the chapel, I felt different, serene. And out of curiosity again I never expected I was in queue to held Padre Pio hands at the left side of the altar. I wrote a letter and placed it at the petition box. It’s my time to held Padre Pio hands when I start crying. I know from that time he is with me and listening to my petitions. I am so lucky because I was the last devotee to help his hands because the mass was about to start. I am praying for good health for my love ones specially my mom who was in pain walking, also for continuous blessings, guidance, career growth, a partner in life that will truly love and deserve me and also for financial assistance. I am also praying to be successful applicant for Qatar Airways. I always pray and hopefully by 2nd/3rd week of this September they will call those who succed. I am praying that I am one of them.

St.Padre Pio, allow me to get this career and work overseas. Amen.

There is a Padre Pio Shrine at San Pedro Sto. Tomas Batangas. I am encouraging everyone to visit the place. There are a lot of devotees visiting the place esp. every 23rd of the Month at 9am and 6 pm mass.

Pray, Hope and Dont Worry.

Hi Aileen,

Thank you for taking the time to alert me that someone has indeed copied my post verbatim. It’s so sad. I already put in a request for her to take down the copied post as a courtesy to a fellow blogger like me.

Happy holidays to you, Aileen!

I will meet my old friends tom Dec 29, 2013 at St. Pio Libis it came- out as we texted just to see each other and I suggested that it will be in a church where we haven’t been to. I heard about St Pio during my high school days, one of my classmates gave me a St Pio picture, and after 20 years, I watched on TV and read that some famous personalities went to St Pio and telling everyone that it’s a nice place. I was surprised to know that there’s St Pio Chapel located in Libis Quezon City (I was not able to watch the Rated K episode) because I heard before that it is in Batangas.. As I want to gather information, I googled about St Pio-Libis and I came across FB page of St. Pio I called their landline and asked for the church direction. . Then today I found this blog and I read some posts here on church directions. I’m teary-eyed reading testimonials here. My mom passed-away last August 2013 I wish I knew the place before then and was able to bring her there… Padre Pio, please be with my mom Tasing. I’m still in grief. Please pray for me. Please also pray for me to get a new job soon I’m on my late 30’s. Thank you so much. Pray..hope..Don’t worry..

Hope n pray ko po sana na mapagaling ni Father Pio ang granddaughter kong c Baby Cassandra. She was prematurely born last Oct. 21, 2013 and only 8 months old now. She is being treated at home due to her poor health and needs continuous medication. She has a standby oxygen at home because of her weak lungs. We were there at Sto. Tomas, Batangas last July 5, 2014 for healing, and will continue to go there so that she will be cured. We come from Bocaue, Bulacan and left the house at 6:00 am last July 5, and we arrived at exactly 9:00 am. More Power to ur Parish Church and we thank you for all the assistance extended to my Granddaughter Cassandra. We will be there on Saturday, July 19, 2014 for her continuous healing and GOD BLESS US ALL. Thank you very very big and see u all there at Sto. Tomas.
