A Tree of Immeasurable Size
Tree Room at National Centre For Padré Pio
" ... Jesus said to me: Do you remember what I manifested to you in 1906 while you were ill? Yes, I remember. Jesus had said to me in locution: From far away a priest will come, symbolized as a big tree which was to be placed in the Friary. This tree which was so big and well-rooted was to cover the whole world with its shadow. Whoever took refuge with faith under this tree, so beautiful and rich with leaves would gain true salvation. Whereas, whoever despised and derided this tree, Jesus threatened with chastisements. Now He tells me that this tree is Padre Pio who, coming from far away is rooted in the Friary by the Will of God, and taking refuge under it are those souls guided by him who obey with faith and will go on; whereas, those who despise, deride and ridicule him will be chastised ·by God ... "
Lucia's vision of the "Tree of Padre Pio" has been recreated in the new Saint Pio Museum in Barto, PA. The Perpetual Wall of Names shows the branches of Padre Pio 's Tree spread far and wide around the museum. The names of Padre Pio's devotees and spiritual children (living and deceased), whose generosity and love are making the museum possible, are inscribed on the leaves and reside in the shade of its branches. Encased in the trunk of Saint Pio's Tree is a piece of the Tree of the Stigmata from the Forgione Family farm in Piana Romana (Pietrelcina), where Padre Pio was marked with the invisible wounds. Each name that is added strengthens this tree; enables the mission of the museum; and assures the promise of Saint Pio to "stand at the gates of Heaven until all my spiritual children have entered." Let us not forget that Saint Pio's promise is the Will of Jesus as revealed in 1906.
