Finding Frassati

And Following His Path to Holiness

$18.95

About this item

His friends called him an explosion of joy. Mountain climbing, music, practical jokes and political debates were among his many passions. With film star looks, common sense intelligence, and amazing athleticism, Pier Giorgio Frassati had every reason to pursue worldly success. He chose to focus on higher goals instead.

Identified as “The Man of the Eight Beatitudes” and recognized as one of the most fascinating and relatable saintly examples of the 20th century, he was devoted to the Eucharist and the Blessed Mother and led a mostly hidden life of charity that ultimately cost him his life at the age of twenty-four. When his body was exhumed in 1981, it was found to be perfectly incorrupt. He was beatified in 1990. All three popes since then have commended this dynamic young Italian’s life to the Church—and especially to younger Catholics.

Author Christine Wohar, a noted expert on Frassati, has created this practical guide to Pier Giorgio’s short but spirited life. Writing in a simple, accessible style, she presents 40 reflections on aspects of his personal life and spirituality. Prayers and concrete action steps are included to help you make this future saint’s habits and methods your own.

Simple and profound - just what I needed!
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati has been a guide to me over the past few years of my young adult life. This book is the perfect read to continue that journey as it teaches me more about him in an everyday kind of way. I also love reading about Christine Wohar's personal encounters with PG and his family through the course of her own journey. Ultimately, this book takes everything I love about Pier Giorgio and offers it to me in little chunks for each day.

Personal, practical, and easy to access
Christine Wohar’s book felt like an invitation to join her on her journey to learning more about Pier Giorgio, and the prayers and actions included along the way were welcomed challenges to take the witness of Georgio’s life and let it have an effect on my own. This book is a great read for anyone who wishes to grow in holiness and to have a deeper insight into the life of the young blessed Pier Giorgio.
