I was so blessed to be able to pray a chaplet in front of the body of sweet Bl. Pier in a church in Poland for World Youth Day. A song was playing in the background with the words "I give it all to you God, trusting that you'll make something beautiful out of me." These were the same words I echoed as I overlooked the beauty of God's creation in the Tatra mountains-- the favorite of St. John Paul II. Bl. Pier was with me in those mountains as I slowly discerned my vocation as a youth and would later go on to teach English in Spain and study at Franciscan University of Steubenville. We must continue to climb higher to find our identities and callings in Christ. Verso l'alto!
