Antonia Salzano, Blessed Carlo Acutis’ mother, prays after installing the relic of her son in the new shrine dedicated to his life on Oct. 1. Her hands were the first to hold him and the last to touch his earthly relic.
‘Through Carlo, Jesus is doing a lot of miracles, healings and conversions. This is a time when we need saints because the darkness is all around us, and young people have so many dangers. … Carlo is a sign of hope. He passed over all these things, too. He was not polluted by it. This is possible for everybody. Our children can still be holy.’
