Visit of Pilgrim Relic (Relic of the Saint’s Heart?) of Padre Pio to all the 16 Archdioceses of the Philippines throughout the Year 2018 :  (still to be scheduled and arranged with individual archdioceses) the year 2018 is the 100th Year of the Stigmata of Padre Pio and the 50th Year since his death in 1968.  Padre Pio is a model of parish priests when he was Parish Priest of San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy and he is also a consecrated person, a Franciscan Capuchin.  So Padre Pio or more accurately St Pio of Pietrelcina would be a good role model for the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons.
