The Pope's Traditional Masterstroke to bring Crowds to the Jubilee

So...the 2016 Mercy Jubilee was not the popular success that had been foreseen. What was the solution?

The Pope had the Capuchins bring to Rome from different points of Italy two of the most popular and traditional saints of the 20th Century, great Apostles of Penance and Confession: Sts. Padre Pio and Leopold Mandic.

And the crowds suddenly appeared for the venerable Relics!

Hail Tradition!
