Beatified in 1990 by Saint Pope John Paul II and named "The Man of the Eight Beatitudes," Pier Giorgio teaches us that holiness is possible for everyone. Always "Toward the top!"
Get to know Pier Giorgoi:
Will Pier Georgio be named a saint?
Perhaps. Consider Kevin Becker's incredible recovery from a coma and life-threatening brain injuries through the intercession of Blessed Pier Georgio (although it has not yet been Vatican-verified as an "official miracle").
"O merciful God,
Who through the perils of the world
deigned to preserve by Your grace Your
servant Pier Giorgio Frassati pure of heart
and ardent of charity, listen, we ask You,
to our prayers and, if it is in Your designs
that he be glorified by the Church,
show us Your will, granting us the graces
we ask of You, through his intercession,
by the merits of Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen."
+Maurillo, Archbishop of Turin
