Here's another reason July 4 is so special!

Independence Day in the United States also happens to be the feast day of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, who died 95 years ago at the young age of 24. If you don’t know this young Italian, today is the day to learn a little more about him and introduce him to your family. If you have heard of him, you’ll no doubt appreciate a little reminder as to why Pier Giorgio should become one of your go-to saints.
