I made a post a while back about a young man in Italy who was in the process of possibly becoming a Saint. We are extremely happy to inform our readers that Carlo Acutis’ cause has moved further along when on July 5th Pope Francis authorized The Congregation for the Causes of Saints to promulgate the decree which advances Acutis’ cause and names him Venerable.
Carlo Acutis was born on May 3rd, 1993. He was raised in Milan and gravitated to computers. He remarkably created a website that catalogued every Marian apparition which led to the birth of the international exhibition: The Eucharistic Miracles of the World.
Acutis passed away on October 12th, 2006 at 15 years old. He was an extremely pious young man and would attend church daily to receive the Eucharist. He frequently said the rosary and dedicated his life to his love of God.
What an amazing example of a young man willfully choosing to lead a moral life in a world rife with temptation. Carlo Acutis should be an example for young men and women throughout the entire world.
Please share this so that Carlo’s cause can be seen to the end with his beatification.
