Blessed Carlo Acutis

Published on July 6, 2024

First millennial Saint Pope Francis and the Consistory of Cardinals voted to approve the canonization of the first Saint from Generation Y, those born between1981 and 1996 commonly known as millennials. Blessed Carlo Acutis will likely be proclaimed a Saint during the 2025 Jubilee, possibly along with other canonizations.  Born to Italian parents in London, England, in 1991, Blessed Carlo was a web designer who died from leukemia at the age of 15 in Monza, Italy. He was known for his devotion to Eucharistic miracles and Marian apparitions, which he catalogued on a website he designed. According to the Peroratio, Blessed Carlo was “welcoming and caring towards the poorest, and he helped the homeless, the needy, and immigrants with the money he saved from his weekly allowance.”

Quote from  Blessed Carlo Acutis  When we face the sun  we get a tan,  but when we stand before Jesus in the Eucharist we become saints. By standing before the Eucharistic Christ, we become holy.”
