Why this name?
«Father Eusebio, get the weapon from my pocket». Father Eusebio didn’t understand and Padre Pio pointed to the pocket of his habit where he kept his rosary. His closest spiritual sons knew well what the rosary meant to Padre Pio. Cleonice Morcaldi writes: «the night before he died he was at his usual place, on the porch, with the weapon in his hand». This is where the name “Army” comes from.More
