Free Read 2/13
Our free read this week is A Man of the Beatitudes: Pier Giorgio Frassati. In this inspiring biography, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati’s sister provides an account of her brother’s joyful and unassuming life of holiness, peace, and love of God and neighbor. The patron of students and World Youth Days, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is an example for all young people and for anyone striving to draw closer to God in daily life.
Pope St. John Paul II, who was influenced by Frassati as a young man and who beatified him in 1990, praised him as “a man of the eight beatitudes, a modern youth and great mountaineer who was keenly interested in the problems of culture, sports and social questions, as well as the true values of life.”
