Get To Know *Almost* Saint Pier Giorgio Frassati 

by July, Saints

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, mountain enthusiast, student, fun-loving, and passionate Catholic, was born in Italy in 1901 and died when he was only 24.

Born to a wealthy family, he used his privileged position to secretly support the poor. He led an ordinary life that most young people can relate to. He orchestrated pranks and parties, loved the outdoors, and 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 today’s youth.

“I would like to tell you that the canonization of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is now clear on the horizon and looming for the next jubilee year.”

Cardinal Marcello Semeraro (prefect of the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints)
“Towards The Heights!” | Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati Quote

“When you are totally consumed by the Eucharistic fire, then you will be able more consciously to thank God, who has called you to become part of His family. Then you will enjoy the peace that those who are happy in this world have never experienced, because true happiness, oh young people, does not consist in the pleasures of this world, or in earthly things, but in peace of conscience, which we only have if we are pure of heart and mind.”
