There is a beautiful story on  the Feast of the Epiphany, the oldest of the Christmas feasts. There is a beautiful story about a little boy who prayed with great intensity to Padre Pio, asking for a toy train. “If you can help me to get a train, I will bring you a box of candy when I see you again,” the boy prayed. It happened that the boy’s father was a police officer. In the town where they lived, it was the tradition to give police officers and other public officials, a gift on the Feast of Epiphany. The police officer was given a toy train which he gave to his son. When the boy’s aunt took him to San Giovanni Rotondo, Padre Pio greeted him and said, “Now, did you bring me a box of candy?”
