Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati: An Ordinary Christian
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati: An Ordinary Christian
Maria Di Lorenzo
[Paper Back]
ISBN:9780819811622
£11.99

Athletic, handsome, and always good for a laugh, Pier Giorgio Frassati was the charismatic leader of a band of rowdy friends. He smoked, pulled pranks, relished extreme sports, fiercely debated politics into the night....and secretly gave away his wealth to help the poor: a mother unexpectedly widowed, a homeless invalid, a boy without warm clothes....and plunged eagerly into intense experiences of Eucharistic prayer.

An inspiring biography that captures Frassati's spirit, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati: An Ordinary Christian explores the adventuresome personality and forthright love of a man who succeeded in wresting holiness from everyday life.

This inspiring biography sheds new light on the all-too-short life of the young man John Paul II has called "a man of the Beatitudes."
