I heard about Bl. Pier Giorgio on Facebook in Autumn 2017. I knew several young people with troubled lives and I turned to him for prayer. I was delighted when our Bishop announced a couple of months later that he would be making a pilgrimage to Turin to dedicate our youth to his prayers.
I could not attribute any one development to his intercession but I continue to turn to him as I feel his physical and spiritual energy are needed more than ever. I am delighted that we are going to visit Turin this summer and I will visit his tomb and his home town.
Whether or not he is made a saint at this time, his care for the poor, his passion for social justice and his animated prayer life are a wonderful inspiration.
