Visitors to Assisi can once again see Blessed Carlo Acutis, the first millennial to be beatified in the Catholic Church, dressed in jeans and tennis shoes through a viewing glass on his tomb.
Archbishop Domenico Sorrentino removed the panel covering Acutis’ tomb on June 1, reopening it for permanent public veneration.
With the lifting of Italy’s former travel restrictions for tourists, many international pilgrims will now have the opportunity to see the young Blessed for the first time.
The archbishop of Assisi-Nocera Umbra-Gualdo Tadino said that he hopes that all who come to pray at the tomb will “open themselves to the light of the Gospel and have a profound experience of faith."
