Testimony of Jufre G. from the Philippines

I came to know Bl. Pier while searching the internet for a saints who cloud be a role model for the youth. Upon reading his life story, I realized that one does not need to perform miracles or great things to be holy. He made me realized that holiness can be achieved in doing ordinary things with great love. He is a model of how to be charitable to everyone without seeking for any reward
and it inspire me to perform small acts of kindness to those I meet. His great devotion to the Holy Eucharist and the Blessed Mother is another thing that I admire as well, especially his vigils before the Blessed Sacrament.
Bl. Pier is one of those who helped me to discern what kind of life God is really calling me to. At present, I am a member of the Franciscans of Our Lady of the Poor (FLP) and studying Theology at the Inter-Congregational Theological Center in Novaliches, Quezon City. Through signing up, I wish to express my gratitude to God and to Bl .Pier for the many blessing I have received, especially my vocation, and will continue to receive through his powerful intercession.
