I have been very blessed to be spiritual friends with Blessed Pier Giorgio for the past 24 years. I took his name for my Confirmation saint and was first introduced to him through a traveling photographic display that came to Franciscan University when I was 19 years old.
Since that time I have looked to him as a role model for holy masculinity, courage amidst life's challenges and devotion to Our Lord and His bride. I go to Blessed Pier Giorgio frequently asking for his intercession.
Blessed Pier Giorgio is an outstanding example for young people and Christians who want to live a dynamic Faith life. His July 4th feast day makes him special also to the American people.
