Testimony of Jacob N. from USA

Dear Pope Francis,

Let me first and foremost state might admiration for the way you are living out your pontificate! It is truly inspiring to see your servant's heart at work ministering and loving the poor, forgotten, and destitute; the witness you are making of what genuine love-in-action looks like is incredible!

Now, onto the business at hand, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati! Frassati holds a near and dear place in my heart for a number of reasons. Ironically enough, my deep respect and admiration for Pier is only about 2.5 years in the making, but it has truly been a pround 2.5 years. Blessed Pier Giorgio is the namesake and inspiration for a Catholic Young Adult Men's Household myself and a couple other friends started 2.5 years ago. Since then we have formed a Men's group of nearly 15 people that has been meeting every Monday for over two years now. The purpose of the Frassati Household and the Frassati Fellowship Men's group is to foster Brotherhood, Accountability, and growth in the Virtuous Beatitudes with Bl. Pier Giorgio, the man of the beatitudes, being our role model! 

All of that being said, I want to express my deepest convictions that Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati be Canonized a Saint because I can attest that his example and intercessions for myself and my friends have been profound and in some ways nothing short of miraculous in today's day and age.

Verso l'Alto!

Gratefully in Christ,
Jacob Niemeier
