Lidia Arena, la ragazza guarita da Padre Pio quando era bambina.

Gelsomino Del Guercio - published on 06/11/22

"Suddenly and inexplicably, something happened and the child was healed. She was cured of the illness she had."

Today, Lidia Arena is a talented 20-year-old dancer, but when she was two years old, she was at great risk of dying.

This was recounted by her parents, Maurizio and Francesca Arena, originally from Giarre (Sicily), during a Sicilian meeting of the Padre Pio Prayer Groups which took place in the cathedral of the city of Catania.
