Happy Feast of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati!
(He's the smiling one above!)
Father, You gave to the young Pier Giorgio Frassati the joy of meeting Christ and of living his faith in the service of the poor and the sick. Through his intercession may we, too, walk the path of the Beatitudes and follow the example of generosity, spreading the spirit of the Gospel in society. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
