  • By Luciana Frassati, sister of the Blessed. An eyewitness account of the life of Pier Giorgio Frassati (1901-1925), a handsome, athletic and fun-loving young man from a prominent but troubled Italian family, who was beatified by Pope John Paul II. From a privileged background, he turned to a life devoted to working with the poor, and was a courageous witness of Christian faith and charity to many others. Deeply spiritual, Pier Giorgio sometimes spent entire nights in Eucharistic adoration before going mountain climbing early the next morning! He died of polio at the early age of 24. Fascinating reading. Contains photos. 170 pp. Softcover.
