Pier Giorgio is so special to me!
I learned about him 4 years ago and my devotion has since grown greatly!!
I got to go on pilgrimage to Turin in 2015 and it was so powerful to pray in front of his tomb, visit sites that he frequented and climb his favorite mountains.
I have since then prayed to him specifically with my student leader group at Benedictine College and we deemed him our groups' patron saint and ask his intercession in all our planning of campus events.
I got to pray with Pier Giorgio again at WYD 2016.
I love his adventurous spirit, his love of the poor, the mountains, community, young people, and his joy/sense of humor and his striving for greatness!!!
I have been praying for his canonization for quite some time and really really hope to attend it!!!
