Pier Giorgio Frassati: Letters to His Friends and Family

by Pier Giorgio Frassati
     
 
For Catholics who associate sainthood with miracles and spiritual phenomena, the story of a young man who lived an ordinary life seems rather... well, ordinary. And at first glance that is what it was: days that revolved around a routine of home, school and friends; weekends spent skiing in the mountains or swimming at the beach. But his letter reveal greater depth

Overview

For Catholics who associate sainthood with miracles and spiritual phenomena, the story of a young man who lived an ordinary life seems rather... well, ordinary. And at first glance that is what it was: days that revolved around a routine of home, school and friends; weekends spent skiing in the mountains or swimming at the beach. But his letter reveal greater depth with their frequent references to St. Paul, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, peace, prayer, friendship, charity, family life, life with God, etc.

Meet the Author

Pier Giorgio Frassati was beatified by Pope John Paul II on May 20, 1990. On that occasion the Pope said: "Faith and charity, the true driving forces of his existence, made him active and diligent in the milieu in which he lived, in his family, in the university and society... Entirely immersed in the mystery of God and totally dedicated to the constant service of his neighbor: thus we can sum up his earthly life!
