I was introduced to Blessed Pier Giorgio as a college student. I had become involved in the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), a campus missionary organization that looks to Bl. Pier Giorgio as a tremendous role model. In those years since, I have asked for his intercession numerous times, in particular, on behalf of college students and young adults who are struggling to find their path in this world. His example has personally challenged me to persevere as a Christian in the face of widespread apathy, to have hope, and to see the underprivileged as brothers and sisters.
