Padre Pio Grotto

The Grotto

The Grotto is the first visible sign of the Home for the Relief of Suffering project. The shrine is nestled in a cathedral of trees and features Padre Pio's favorite painting - Our Lady of Grace. A beautiful altar is in place for the celebration of Mass on the grounds. Please join us in this call to build a peaceful, prayerful place in our suffering world.

This depiction of Our Lady of Grace is painted on the wall and ceiling behind the altar in the church of San Giovanni Rotondo, where Padre Pio had his ministry. This painting was Padre Pio’s favorite and he prayed daily in front of it. In the painting, Baby Jesus is reaching for his mother’s milk, which represents grace. We are also the children of Mary, and Jesus invites us to partake of this grace.
