…To be beatified at the Papal Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi on Saturday, October 10
The tomb of #CarloAcutis was opened Saturday morning in Assisi after the Holy Mass officiated by the Bishop of the Diocese. The body of Carlo Acutis was found intact and incorruptible after 10 years of burial and has been put on public display for the glory of God!
For the first time in history you will see a saint dressed in jeans, sneakers and hoody. Holiness is not a distant thing but very much within everyone’s reach because the Lord is for everyone.
Carlo Acutis was an Italian Roman Catholic teenager. He was best known for documenting Eucharistic miracles around the world and cataloging them all onto a website that he himself created in the months before his death from leukemia.
Born: May 3, 1991 – Died: 12 October, 2006
Pope Francis declared him to be Venerable on 5 July 2018; the same pope approved a miracle attributed to him which enables Acutis to be beatified.
Acutis will be beatified at the Papal Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi on Saturday, October 10 at 4 P.M. Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, will preside.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
