Celebrating Blessed Pier Giorgio's Birthday

This is the second time in the last five years that Pier Giorgio's birthday falls on one of the most profoundly holy days in the Church year -- Good Friday.   A special Way of the Cross was prepared in 2007 for this occasion.  This year, the international celebration of Pier Giorgio's birthday will again incorporate these prayers.  The invitation to pray and information about how to add your name to the list of those around the world joining in this celebration can all be found on the FrassatiUSA website in our Prayers/Meditations section.  You can also download a .pdf version of the Way of the Cross with Blessed Pier Giorgio from that section and share it with your friends.  Click here to get started by reading a short note from Pier Giorgio's niece Wanda Gawronska.  I will be having lunch with Wanda on Tuesday and will hope to have an update on the two miracles from the U.S. that are currently being investigated.  Whenever I travel to Italy, I bring all of the intentions of the friends of Pier Giorgio -- that is, all of you! -- with me to all of the holy places that I visit.  This trip will be no exception.  May Blessed Pier Giorgio intercede for you during these final weeks of Lent.  Verso l'alto!
