Pope Francis - words on Carlo Acutis

At the end of the Angelus, the Pope recalled that on Saturday, Oct. 10, Carlo Acutis was beatified in Assisi, the first millennial to be raised to the altars.

Words of the Holy Father after the Angelus:
Yesterday, in Assisi, Carlo Acutis, a 15-year-old youth fascinated by the Eucharist, was beatified. He did not ease into comfortable immobility, but understood the needs of his time, because he saw the face of Christ in the weakest. His witness indicates to today's young people that true happiness is found by putting God in first place and serving Him in our brothers and sisters, especially the least. A round of applause for the new young Blessed millennial!
