I recently made a pilgrimage to the sites connected with Bl. Pier Giorgio, especially Turin, Pollone, and the Oropa Shrine. Before this trip, I knew little about Bl. Pier Giorgio except for what looked to me like the "patron saint of having a good time" in his photographs. During the pilgrimage, though, I got to know a saint who was truly moved by God's grace to give witness to the life of grace before us. Learning the story of his family, it became clear that the impetus to prayer, evangelization, and works of charity came directly from God. We need his intercession now, more than ever, to bring God's grace into the life of our young people.
