Bl. Carlo Acutis, the modern apostle of the Eucharist, continues his work of evangelization as his life continues to inspire devotion and art.
Acutis was a Italian Catholic teenager who died in 2006. He became the first millennial to be declared blessed on Oct. 10, 2020. A gamer and computer programmer who loved soccer and the Eucharist, he has been the subject of interest around the world.
This month, there is an exhibit about his life at a shrine in northwestern Italy, reported ACI Stampa, CNA’s Italian-language news partner.
At the Italian Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of the Gate, in Asti, an exhibit about Carlo Acutis is on display until June 27. The exhibit accompanies a relic of Bl. Carlo, which has been present at the shrine beginning June 6 and will remain until the end of the month.
