Asking Pope Francis to Canonize Pier Giorgio Frassati

Asking Pope Francis to Canonize Pier Giorgio Frassati

[lead dropcap="yes"]I’ve had a devotion to Bl. Giorgio Frassati for over two decades and built the first web site dedicated to him (which now exists as part of this site).[/lead]

This past May 20 marked the 27th anniversary of the beatification of Pier Giorgio and in that time, devotion to this remarkable young man has spread throughout the world.

Now, the Spirit has moved those closest to Frassati to ask the Holy Father to move to the next step, to canonize PGF, perhaps at the upcoming Synod on Young People in October 2018. This is part of the cause for canonization, showing evidence that devotion to the blessed has spread throughout the Church, which it most certainly has.

To that end, they have asked everyone to go to to sign the letter to the Holy Father and then to spread the word to let everyone know to do so. I hope you’ll join me in this effort.

  • Has there been a miracle yet? Maybe praying for a miracle is a good way to move the Canonization forward. I know that I give out holy cards to and bless those I know who are sick with a relic of Bl. Pier Georgio Frassati begging for a miracle.
