Blessed Pier Giorgio more found me than I him. People were posting a lot about him on Facebook and I didn't know why. A friend gave me holy cards of him and then I ended up climbing my first 14er on July 4th (his feast day). I knew all this couldn't be coincidence and I knew that I was supposed to get to know him better. He helped me see the beauty of God's creation and that climbing a mountain is like living life. His motto "Verso L'alto" has really inspired me to "keep climbing" and live life everyday to the fullest. I often fail in that, but I know that with his intersection I can become a saint. Bl. Ppier Giorgio, pray for us.
