Testimony of Lorraine S. from Canada

I read the book written by Bl. Piergiorgio's niece and was very moved by the story of his life. I then wrote a shortened version on my blog and gave the book to a young man that I sponsored for confirmation. When I taught catechism classes to Grade 5 students I featured Bl. Piergiorgio's story in one of the lesson times so that the children would learn about this young man who lived an extraodinary life in an ordinary time and place. I hope they have not forgotten about him. Blessed Piergiorgio Frassati is one of my favourite saints (St. John Paul II is another one). I am so thankful for their examples to us. I am a convert from a Protestant background.
