Feast of Blessed Pier Giorgio - Patron for WYD2013
Today (4 July) is the feast day of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, one of the intercessors for World Youth Day 2013 in Rio. Pier Giorgio Frassati was born in Turin, Italy on Holy Saturday, April 6, 1901. From a young age he developed a deep spiritual life which he never hesitated to share with his friends. In 1918 he joined the St. Vincent de Paul Society and dedicated much of his spare time to serving the sick and the needy.
