紀念日 / Memorial date
Blessed Carlo Acutis
Carlo Acutis was born to a wealthy Italian family in London. His parents were not especially religious; but Carlo showed great interest in religion at a young age. Those closest to him considered him a “computer geek” on account of his passion and skill with computers and the internet. He was passionate about evangelization.
He applied himself to creating a website dedicated to cataloguing each reported Eucharistic miracle in the world.
Developed leukemia, offering his suffering both for Pope Benedict XVI and for the Church. The doctors asked him if he was in great pain to which he responded that “there are people who suffer much more than me.” Died on October 12, 2006 from the M3 subtype of fulminating acute promyelocytic leukemia.
Almighty God, who grants Blessed Carlo deep love for the Eucharist, and
that he made use of technology wisely to spread the Gospel.
Through Blessed Carlo’s example and prayers, help us,
especially youth, make good use of our lives
given by you for your glory and for the salvation of humankind.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
