  1. Profound words, Piergiorgio, the man of the eight beatitudes, has always been one of my favorite Vincentian Family Saints.

  2. Ich habe noch nie zuvor von Giorgio Frassati gehört, obwohl Turin, seine Heimatstadt und Ort seiner Wirkkraft kaum 3 Stunden Autofahrt von mir zuhause liegt. Ich mag diese ruhige Art seines sozialen Handelns, seiner Naturverbundenheit und sie Vorstellung seiner Beerdigung als einer Demonstration des Dankes an einen so früh verstorbenen Wohltäter.
