Prayer to Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

Prayer to Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

Blessed Pier Giorgio, you taught me how to lead
an unselfish life and to keep those who suffer
close to my heart. You had good times with your
friends and you really enjoyed sports. But you
always kept God and love and kindness to others 
as your highest priorities.

Help me when I try to imitate you and I
Stumble. Help me when I lose my grip in trying
to climb always closer to God.

I want to be an apostle of Jesus just like you.

This past year I read two books about Pier Giorgio, both were excellent reads and inspired me. This Prayer comes from this book in the Encounter the Saints Series:

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati 
Journey to the Summit
Encounter the Saints Series Book 18
Susan Helen Wallace 
Ray Morelli (Illustrator)
Pauline Books and Media
ISBN 9780819811653

The Other was this one:

Blessed Pier Giorgio FrassatiAn Ordinary Christian
Maria Amata Di Lorenzo
Robert Ventresca (Translator)
Pauline Books and Media
ISBN 9780819811622

I highly recommend both books and praying this prayer!
