Special Message From...

Antonia Salzano
Mother of Blessed Carlo Acutis

Carlo Acutis, a Catholic Italian teenager who died of leukemia in 2006 at the age of 15, was beatified Oct. 10, 2020 in Assisi. Carlo is primarily remembered for his dedication to the Eucharist and Eucharistic Miracles. His efforts to collect the stories of every Eucharistic Miracle onto a single website ultimately led to the production of the Eucharistic Miracle Banners which will be on display during the conference.

Pope Francis referred to Carlo as a model of holiness in a digital age. Carlo’s life should teach today's young people how to properly use and enjoy technology, including the internet and social media.

“To always be close to Jesus, that’s my life plan”
