Pilgrimage to Assisi

Mar 23, 2023

Father Martin Nguyen, Pastor of Holy Family Parish in Orlando, kneels before the remains of Blessed Carlo Acutis while on a pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy. Father Nguyen traveled to Italy to obtain a relic for his parish but said the pilgrimage had other purposes: “to inspire our youth by the example of this young man who achieved holiness through simple acts of kindness and devotion, who dressed in jeans and t-shirts, and who allowed the Eucharist to be his ‘highway to heaven;’ and to promote greater devotion to the Eucharist among the faithful, for Carlo had a tremendous love for our Eucharistic Lord.” (COURTESY)
