The Church's first millennial Blessed has stirred the hearts of so many pilgrims, near and far.
Such a large number of pilgrims are seeking the chance to pray before the relics of Blessed Carlo Acutis that the bishop of Assisi has extended the public viewing through the weekend.
Carlo Acutis became the first member of the millennial generation to be recognized as Blessed, with a beatification ceremony in Assisi on October 10.
The young computer whiz and his simple wisdom has caught the attention even of the secular world, with outlets such as NPR and the Associated Press covering his beatification.
Blessed Carlo’s remains will be open for viewing until Monday, to accommodate those who can visit over the weekend.
