If you are curious about the stigmata...

... here are some links you can check out.

The Catholic Encyclopedia gives the official story, or at any rate the official story as it was in about 1913. Since the online edition dates from the beginning of the century, it does not include the most famous stigmatic of the twentieth century, Padre Pio.

If this omission worries you, Padre Pio has his own homepage.

You may also be interested in the account of someone who claims to have met a stigmatic recently at a conference...

Or perhaps a dose of skepticism is in order.
