Thieves target St Pio's relics

THIEVES have attempted, but failed, to steal relics of St Pio of Pietrelcina from the Capuchin cemetery in San Giovanni Rotondo, the town where the friar lived and ministered.

Italian police said thieves entered the cemetery chapel on Sunday night by breaking a window. St Pio is not buried with his Capuchin confreres in the cemetery but rests in a shrine dedicated to him nearby.
