Verso L'Alto, Toward the top, made famous by the words written by Pier Giorgio Frassati, now Blessed Pier Giorgio, on the back of a photo taken by a fellow mountain climber. Giorgio physically defended the faith at times, first with anticlerical Communists and later with Fascists. He was beatified by Pope John Paul II May 20, 1990. How could I not be happy? As long as faith gives me strength, I am happy. A Catholic could not be other than happy. The goal for which we were created involves a path which has its thorns, but it is not a sad path. It is joy, even when it involves pain. *NOTE: At this time we are unable to include personal messages to item recipients. We are planning to offer this service in the future and will note when we are able to do so. Thank you and God bless!
