Millennial Saints

Post by Pyrrho »

https://www.npr.org/2020/10/12/92304005 ... nial-saint
A teenage computer gamer and programmer from Italy who devoted the final years of his life to the church until his death in 2006 was beatified over the weekend, making him the first millennial to be put on the path to Catholic sainthood.

A portrait of Carlo Acutis, who died of leukemia at age 15, was unveiled at the beatification ceremony at the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi. In it, he is wearing a red polo shirt and his curly hair is ringed by a faint halo of light.

Acutis has been called the "patron saint of the Internet." He created a website to catalog miracles and managed sites for local Catholic organizations.

Aren't Saints supposed to perform miracles?

I know that they have ways of fudging that requirement. Someone will claim that a witch turned them into a newt, and they prayed to him for help and--miraculously!--they were no longer a newt.
Acutis' first miracle was proclaimed in 2013 when the Vatican says he interceded from heaven to save the life of a Brazilian who was suffering from a rare pancreatic disease.
Yes, of course. Must have been heavenly intercession. No other possible explanation.

I love the façade of investigation of said miracles.

Harder to get away with it though.
