WGR11846 - Pier Giorgio Frassati: A Man for Our Times, Part 1


(Program 11846)
Guest:  Michael J. Lichens for Odile Haumonte

Pope John Paul II called him the “man of the eight beatitudes. “His friends called him an “explosion of joy.” An avid athlete accomplished in a variety of sports, he was handsome, a jokester, a music enthusiast, a political debater, and a saint-in-the-making whose funeral mass was packed with family, friends, and hundreds of the poor. He died at only twenty-four, but the mark of his holiness was imprinted on many hearts. And continues to be so nearly one hundred years later. Join us as we discuss Pier Georgio Frassati: A Man of Our Time.
