This is how Padre Pio died, according to nurse who was with him

The only words the friar repeated were “Jesus, Mary, Jesus, Mary.”

“I can’t think of anything…”

As soon as Padre Pio had died, the nurse was called by a nun to return to the hospital, since he was the only nurse on shift in his unit. On the way, Miscio met a journalist who wanted news about the friar. “I said to him … what should I tell you, right now I can’t manage to think of anything.” Miscio was shocked by Padre Pio’s death.

Pio Miscio and Doctor Scarale are currently the only two people still alive who were present at St. Pio’s death.
