Sanctuary of Saint Leopold Mandić at Padua
Sanctuary of Saint Leopold Mandić at Padua. Father Leopoldo Mandic was born in Montenegro in 1866 and reached Padua in 1909, where he remained until 1942, the year of his death. The faithful continue to pray to him in the chapel next to the church of the Capuchin convent of Padua, which has been dedicated to him and where his remains are interred. The tomb and the small confessional cell which, according to his prophecy, survived the bombing that destroyed the church on 14 May 1944, have become pilgrimage sites.
