Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati: Journey to the Summit
Posted on August 14, 2011 14:43 Article Rating
The cover of our Encountering the Saints book on Pier Giorgio Frassati really stands out.  My first reaction was, “This guy looks soooo cool!  I want to be his friend!”  I’m sure this was the cover artist’s intention.  So often, saints and blesseds look, well…saintly!  (No offense, Saint Francis of Assisi.)  What they’ve done seems like so far of a reach for us.  But Pier Giorgio looks like a cool guy!
