Pier Giorgio Frassati was born in the early 20th Century. His mother was the painter, Adelaide Ametis. His father was Agnostic, yet embraced Pier’s religious calling. Pier was not a great student, but he excelled as an athlete, hiker, and mountain climber. His medal shows mountainous terrain on the horizon. He studied Saint Catherine of Siena and Thomas Aquinas. He was a volunteer who worked as a member of the Young Catholic Workers Congress. Pier often administered to the sick, infirm, and contagious. He had a fearless soul. He became a Dominican Tertiary, helping the poor and promoting Eucharistic Adoration. While caring from those afflicted with the plague, he contracted the virus himself and died at age of 24. He was extremely attractive, dynamic, and full of joyful charisma. Many say he was  “put in relief the beauty of his life.”  Due to his penchant for making people laugh and embrace happiness, he was nicknamed the “Terror” due to his escapades. Pope John Paul II was the celebrant offering Pier the Decree of Heroic Virtues. Pier died in 1925 at age 25. He was buried in Turin and later found to be incorrupt. He lies at the Cathedral of Turin where thousands flock to visit. Now beatified by Pope John Paul, Blessed Pier Giorgio “Jerome” Frassati is on his way toward saintly canonization. © 2020
