Padre Pio was also known to have the gift of bilocation: the ability to be in more than one place at a time. Though he almost never left his monastery, a bishop saw Padre Pio at the beatification of St. Therese. Padre Pio was also seen at the tomb of Pope St. Pius X.
In 1916, an Italian General Cadorna suffered a terrible defeat in battle. Under his leadership there had been many casualties, and he was relieved of his command as a result. The General picked up his gun, and was about to commit suicide, when Padre Pio simultaneously appeared in front of him in his tent. Padre Pio told him to lay aside his gun. After the war was over, the General, who had never before met Padre Pio, visited the monastery in San Giovanni Rotondo. He immediately recognized Padre Pio as the monk who had appeared in his tent.
