Testimony of Joseph from USA

I used to dress up as Blessed Pier Giorgio when I was a kid. He was an athlete and a shining example to his peers in school. To me he shows me that it is possible to be a great saint no matter how hard the circumstances or how old you are. By the age of 18 he was financially taking care of hundreds of the poor. His father was an atheist and he would sneak out early in the morning to go to daily mass, come home and sneak back in through his window and pretend like he was waking up for the first time. He is everything I strive to be as a disciple of Christ.
