Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati

As a young man in Italy, Pier Giorgio loved mountain climbing and hiking in the outdoors. He was cheerful and friendly, ready to listen to all he met. He never complained about his personal struggles or told people how much he helped the poor. When he was only twenty-four, he died of polio. No one realized how many friends he had, especially among the poor, until large crowds came to his funeral.
