On the Air Again

I’m going to be a guest again on Cincinnati’s Catholic radio station, Sacred Heart Radio, on their live morning show called Son Rise. I’m on tomorrow at 8:15 am.

The topic this time is Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. The occasion is the fact that his remains are being transferred from Italy to Australia this month, to be present at next month’s World Youth Day celebration in Sydney.

Frassati — who lived a remarkable life in his teens and early twenties of service to the poor, nourished by a blazing love of the Eucharist, then died of polio at age 24 — has emerged as a popular patron of young people in recent years.

The radio station asked me to talk about him because he’s featured in my book, Saints for Our Times.
