Many times I have felt the pressures and challenges of being a young person in the Church and felt the desire to succumb to the societal norms around me. Many times I have seen the challenging road ahead of me that living my life for Jesus would bring then choose the easy and clean road of accepting an average faith life and not striving for more in my relationship with God. That all changed when I found a prayer card for Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati 3 years ago. The phrase 'verso l'alto' changed the way I live my life and it changed the way I look at salvation. After reading the many books describing his life full of humility and courage, and then through his own intercession, I have started to reach for the top in my faith and not be afraid to really give my all to God. Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati's intercession is what has led me to start taking my faith life seriously and to start truly climbing my mountain, and to not be lukewarm in my faith, but on fire.
