A truly remarkable account of the famous German mystic and stigmatist visited by so many GIs after the Second World War. She did not sleep and lived without food or liquid except for daily Eucharist from 1926 to 1962.
Father Charles Mortimer Carty worked with the radio and the press for twenty-four years in the twentieth century. He and Father Leslie Rumble of Australia founded the St. Paul, Minnesota-based Radio Replies Press, through which they distributed thousands of Catholic books and pamphlets. Father Charles wrote the bulk of Padre Pio: The Stigmatist while living at San Giovanni Rotondo, visiting the saint. He afterwards toured the United States and gave sermons on St. Pio. He died during one of these tours on May 22, 1964, in Pennsylvania
