We don't need all these things that often put up a block between us and Christ. It is in the simplicity of things that you find the true joy of being a son or daughter of God”.

If You Want the Pope to Make a Saint Who is “One of Us”, This is What You Can Do

Last edited 30th July 2017

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, mountain-enthusiast, student, fun-lover and passionate Catholic, was born in Italy in 1901 and died when he was only 24. Born to a wealthy family, he used his privileges position to secretly support the poor. For all intents and purposes, he lead an ordinary life of a young person. He orchestrated pranks and parties, loved the outdoors, struggled with his parents, his studies and the direction of his future, all the while demonstrating his deep love of Christ and the Eucharist. A short paragraph of writing cannot do justice to the extraordinary ordinariness of his short life. He is an ideal role-model and intercessor for young people.
