Testimony of Michael L. from USA

I first encountered Blessed Pier Giorgio at a Steubenville conference in San Diego. I found a shirt that had several saints on it and he was the only person I did not know. I looked him up and thought he was awesome! They say there is a saint out there that we can each relate to and Blessed Pier Giorgio is that for me. Pier Giorgio lived what seemed to be an ordinary life. He enjoyed spending time with his friends, family, loved sports and just loved life! But what made him extraordinary was his love for Jesus. This was the center of his reality, the One True Reality, and because Pier Giorgio saw this he became who the Lord truly made him to be, and because of this he was able to change the lives around him and change the world. He is the perfect example for youth. The Lord can work in your life if you only allow him. We are all starving for happiness and true joy in this life, and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati shows us that through love of Christ and love for others is the only way to find this everlasting joy. So please Pope Francis, we the youth and young adults of the world ask that you canonize our example Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, so that more in the world can see the impact that loving Jesus can have on their lives. Verso L'alto!

In Christ,
