Bl. Pier Giorgio has always had a presence in my life especially in youth ministry. At every place I have been to, parish-wise or youth related has always had the intercession of Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati, especially for young men. There is not a single group of young men who are seeking to follow the Lord in radical discipleship who have not asked for his intercession in their activities and growth in holiness.
Now that I am a priest, I have seen, personally, how the witness of this man's life inspires young people to constantly pursue the adventure of holiness. Bl. Pier Giorgio's life tells young people that holiness, sanctity, Life in Christ does not mean being sad or reclusive, but being fully alive, being leaven in the world and utilizing the zeal of youth for the greater glory of God.
