As a child, Francis often experienced godliness and ecstasy. After completing three years of public primary and secondary education in 1897 at the age of 10, Francis felt a calling from God and was drawn to the simple life of a monk. After he expressed his desire to be monastic to his parents, they took the child to visit the Capuchin Franciscan convent in Morcone, 13 miles (21 km) north of Pietrelcina, to find out if Francis could be ordained. The missionaries say they are willing to accept Francis, but not until he has more education. To help pay for his education, Francis’ father sought work in the United States to give Francis more academic education. On September 27, 1899, the prescriptions received the sacrament of confirmation. The prescription then passed the educational requirements set by the previous order. On January 6, 1903, at the age of 15, Francis joined the Capuchin Franciscan order, received the order’s robes, became a novice friar, took the name Fra Pio, and took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. There is much speculation as to why the name was chosen, but it is generally accepted that it is in honor of Pope Saint Pius I, whose reliquaries were found in the Chapel of Saint Annes, where Pio was baptized.
