    "Hi, I am Robert Davi, and I want to ask you to lend your support to the Saint Pio Foundation. When I was a young man, I was facing death in a hospital when my mom and friends of my family got in touch with Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo, in Foggia, and I received then what I believe, and I think even the doctor said, to be a miracle. So through my

We are happy to announce our partnership with Tim Schmalz, an artist and sculptor devoted to creating art that glorifies Christ. His worldwide fame arose from his creation of the "Homeless Jesus", also known as “Jesus, the Homeless,” a bronze sculpture depicting Jesus as a homeless person asleep on a park bench. The original sculpture was installed at Regis College, University of Toronto, in early 2013. It has been reported by National Public Radio that a replica of this sculpture will be installed on the Via della Conciliazione, the street leading to St. Peter's Basilica. Schmalz visited the Pope in Vatican City in November, 2013 to present a miniature version of his statue. "He walked over to the sculpture,” Schmalz said, describing the Pope’s reaction, “and it was just chilling because he touched the knee of the Jesus, the Homeless sculpture, and closed his eyes and prayed. It was like, that's what he's doing throughout the whole world: Pope Francis is reaching out to the marginalized."
Tim has agreed to donate replicas of another his artworks to the Saint Pio Foundation. His sculpture "St. Padre Pio – I Absolve You" (please, see picture) represents Saint Pio as confessor and reveals the face of Jesus through the confessional window. It is our hope that these works of art will inspire our supporters to share a message of mercy and hope to all those that they encounter in their daily lives.

This sculpture is available in two sizes:

THE LARGER is 14 inches high, 7 inches wide, and 5 inches deep. Individual statues are available for a price of $200. For orders of a minimum of three (3) statues, the total price will be $500 (instead of $600).

THE SMALLER is 5 inches high, 2.5 inches wide, and 1.5 inches deep. Individual statues are available a price of $50. For orders of a minimum of ten (10) statues, the total price will be $400 (instead of $500).

Both items are composed of resin-stone and finished in Bronze.

To order your statue, send an email to info@saintpiofoundation.org or call (203) 416-1471. You can also request your statue by sending your donation and request to:
SAINT PIO FOUNDATION, 1011 FIRST AVENUE, ROOM 1350, NEW YORK, NY 10022.

The prices above include shipping within the United States of America. For orders outside U.S.A., please, contact us by email.

It was a wonderful trip! We are pleased to share the following pictures with you from all the pictures taken during that time (May 3rd to May 9th, 2016). They represent some of the most important moments that our group had while visiting Rome, Pietrelcina, San Giovanni Rotondo, Ruvo di Puglia, Polignano a Mare, Bari, and Alberobello.

And we are pleased to inform you that we are already taking reservation for our 2017 tour of Italy, scheduled from June 12th to June 19th. Next year’s tour will include a visit to Pietrelcina and San Giovanni Rotondo, and our guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of being hosted at the unique Borgo Egnazia Hotel, located in Savelletri of Fasano, in Puglia (see below the official promotional video of Borgo Egnazia Hotel). Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to have more info about next year’s tour. Thank you.
