FINDING FRASSATI
AND FOLLOWING HIS PATH TO HOLINESS
– Christine M. Wohar
Forword by Bishop Philip Egan

“I, too, in my youth, felt the beneficial influence of his example and, as a student, I was impressed by the fore of his Christian testimony.” – Pope St. John Paul II
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, commonsense 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 twentieth-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 forty 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.

Paperback. 192 pages.
