Here's a neat story about Padre Pio:

When my father-in-law was a young man, he was very devout (as he was for the rest of his life). He was an altar boy. One morning he went to Mass a little early in order to spend some time in prayer before the service.

He was surprised to see a Priest already there as he was early, but he hurried up and helped the Priest put on his vestments, and get ready. When they were finished, the Priest turned and offered his ring to be kissed, and my father in law kissed it with great devotion. Then the priest left.

As my father in law went back to his pew, the Nuns whispered excitedly to him that the priest was none other than Padre Pio. He was known for bi-location.

My father in law was very modest about this story, but it was known throughout the family. And he was a man of very great integrity.
