Testimony of Fr. Thomas-Marie from France

I knew the name of Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati when I was student and during the prearation of WYD of Köln in 2005. Later, when I entered in the Order of Preacher as novice, I learnt more about the testimony of sainthood of Bl. Pier Giorgio. I was touched by his energy (he was a great sportsman), his devotion, his charism of discernment and as spiritual adviser, but above all I stay very affected by his joy, his smile and his love for the poors. Today Bl. Pier-Giorgio keeps on being one of the saints who go with me in my way of life as disciple of Christ, as priest : the day of my ordination, as a gift, one of my dominican brother entrust my ministry to the intercession of Bl. Pier-Giorgio. May Pope Francis grant our request and declare Bl. Pier-Giorgio as a saint for being an example and an intercessor for all the Church and specially for the young people !!
