I met Pier Girorgio at a Koinonia retreat in college. I went to a small Jesuit school that didn't offer many solid retreats, so my sister invited me to her smaller university in the country for Koinonia. The patron for the retreat was Pier Giorgio. This was a time of major conversion for me. Since then, my love for this young man has grown as I have seen his influence in many areas: my ability to find God in nature, growth in being devoted to God and respectful to those who have different priorities, and appreciation for why it matters to always make time for Christian fellowship. We are not made into saints in isolation, and he has helped show me that. One of my friends even organizes a Frassati in the Fall hiking/lunch event for young adults. His intercession and example have been so fruitful!
