Assisi: Today, Carlo Aquitas, who used his small life by using online technology to proclaim the Lord, will be declared blessed. The proclamation will take place today at 4.30 pm Rome time (8 pm Indian time) at the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. Cardinal Augustine Vallini, Pontifical Representative of the Basilica of Assisi and former Vicar General of Rome, will officiate. Although more people were interested in attending the ceremony, only about 3,000 people were allowed to enter amidst the Covid background. Mother Antonio Salsano will also attends the ceremony to bless her son.
Carlo was born on May 3, 1991 in London. Carlo was passionate about technology. At a very young age, Carlo had set up a vast online collection of the wonders of the world. Launched at the age of eleven, the venture has garnered international attention. At the age of eleven, Carlo wrote that the more we receive divine grace, the more we will become like Jesus and thus have a foretaste of heaven on earth.
Carlo’s exhibition of the Divine Mercy Virtual Library has taken place on five continents. Hundreds have testified that it has contributed to the in-depth study of the miracles of divine grace and to the renewal of faith. He was welcomed to heavenly abode on October 12, 2006, at the age of fifteen, after bringing many to divine grace. The decisive stage of the naming ceremony came when the Vatican approved the miracle needed to elevate Carlo Aquitas to the ranks of the Blessed Sacrament.
