While attending a retreat the week after Pier Giorgio's feast day, the retreat team found a bunch of resources on Pier Giorgio. I never got to see these, but was intrigued about what the team was telling me about him. He was young, loved the mountains and outdoors, and served the poor in so many ways. Prompted by this I then read a few books about him and articles about his motto "Verso l'Alto". Since then I have begun a devotion to him, and have started praying for his canonization.
