Parents of boys engaged in sports and who think manliness and Godliness don't mix, owe it to your sons to introduce them to the life of Pier Giorgio Frassati. Though a century and a continent removed, Pier Giorgio shared the same idealism and interests as our current young men. As a teen, he protested Italy's entry into World War I. He had parents who didn't understand him. He struggled with his studies. He loved to climb and ski and hike and sports were his passion. But his other passions were the love of God as expressed in his daily attendance at Mass and all-night Adoration, and his special love of, and personal sacrifices for, the poor. At his death, at the age of 24, he was personally financially responsible for 120 poor families. His life is an incredible read for any young man.
