Pier Giorgio Frassati: A saint in his every day life.

WANDA GAWRONSKA Pier Giorgio Frassati's Niece "When Pier Giorgio was a boy, he saw a begging woman out on the street, who was carrying a baby. He called her over to his doorstep, took off his shoes and gave them to her, for her son.â? He was very athletic and loved to ski and take hikes in the mountains. It was during those moments in nature when he was able grow in his faith. WANDA GAWRONSKA Pier Giorgio Frassati's Niece "John Paul II said that Pier Giorgio turned his  life into a wonderful adventure. Young people can learn from his faith, since he was able to find passion in every day things.â? Pier Giorgio died suddenly at age 24 when Polio was at its height in 1925. Despite the time, his life continues to inspire thousands of young people, which is one of the reasons he was named an intercessor for the coming World Youth Day in Rio. OFL AM -JM -BN
