I first met Pier Giorgio when I was 12 at a Catholic youth summer camp I attended. He was the patron of my small group. Ever since then my devotion to him has grown and I have developed a strong friendship with him. The fire that Bl. Pier possessed in loving his faith and everyone around me inspires me daily. As I have grown through my teen years he is always my go to patron, whose intersession I ask for daily. Through his intercession I have been inspired to climb mountains- both literally and figuratively. To become active in embracing the beauty of God's creation as a young person, and also accepting and scaling the mountains and trials God places in my life- and doing both with the love and joy that Blessed Pier exemplified. I love Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati!!!
