Carlo becomes Saint!

The Life of Carlo Acutis

Carlo Acutis was born on May 3, 1991 in London and moved to Milan at a young age. Early on he showed a deep love for the Catholic faith, which inspired even his mother to deepen her faith. At the age of 11 he started a website that Eucharistic wonders from all over the world cataloged.

Carlo was known for his kindness and generosity, especially towards the homeless. He called the Eucharist “my highway to heaven”. He was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006, but despite his illness, he continued to practice his faith and inspire others. Carlo died at the age of 15 on October 12, 2006.

Beatification and Canonization

In 2013 the process of his beatification started. On October 10, 2020, Carlo was beatified by Pope Francis and is known as the “patron saint of the Internet”. We are delighted to announce that on May 23, 2024 the canonization process for Carlo Acutis started! His beatification was already a wonderful milestone, and now we are at the beginning of his canonization process. View the translation of the Vatican message.
