You are invited to attend an evening highlighting the life of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, whom Pope St. John Paul II called "The Man of The Beatitudes."Join us as we hear the gripping testimony from our guest speaker Kevin Becker, who experienced a miraculous healing through the intercession of Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati. We also welcome Christine M. Wohar, the President of FrassatiUSA, as she speaks to Frassati's spirit of Catholic Action.
Please Note: Children 10 and under are admitted for free to the event. No childcare will be provided.
Kevin Becker is a young adult that lives in NYC. In 2011, he fell from the second floor of a house, fracturing his skull in five places and damaging every lobe of his brain. Doctors thought he would not make it, unresponsive for 9 days. His family prayed for the intercession of Bl. Frassati and in less than three weeks after his injury he walked out of the hospital tossing a football with his brother. Not only was he completely healed, he says that he’s better than he was before his injury. The records of Kevin’s case have been sent to the Vatican; and his recovery may well be the miracle that leads to Frassati’s canonization.
Christine Wohar is a graduate of the Vanderbilt University School of Law and holds an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. She was introduced to Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati by her parish priest (Fr. John Sims Baker) in 1996. Ten years later, she met one of Frassati’s nieces in Rome and made a life-changing decision. Working closely with the Frassati family, she founded FrassatiUSA -- a non-profit organization that works to promote the spirituality of Pier Giorgio and to further his cause for canonization.
You will be inspired by this powerful story of Kevin Becker's incredible recovery from a coma and life-threatening brain injuries. This unprecedented recovery has been submitted to the Vatican for review as evidence for Bl. Pier Giorgio's canonization. Join us in praying for the canonization of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati! Verso l'alto! To the heights!
