He has been such a good spiritual big-brother to me. He found me in college when I was beginning my journey back to the Lord. It was the summer before my senior year, and I was working with my brother out on a glacier in Alaska, giving dog-sledding tours. Over the course of the summer, I read about his life and his desire for holiness, and as I gazed upon the snow-capped mountains of the Yukon Territory, I felt my heart set ablaze for the love that this man had for God. It has been 10 years since I "met" Pier-Giorgio that summer, and he has been a constant companion ever since.
