“To always be close to Jesus, that’s my life plan.” — Carlo Acutis
Born May 3, 1991, Carlo Acutis, was an exceptional young man. Outwardly, he looked like an average teenager. He wore Nikes, played video games, and liked sports. A gamer, computer programmer, and soccer enthusiast, Carlo also was a person of great faith. He loved the Lord and the Eucharist. As a teenager, Carlo was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia. He offered his sufferings for Pope Benedict XVI and for the Church. He stated, “I offer all the suffering I will have to suffer for the Lord, for the Pope, and the Church.” Carlo died at the age of fifteen. He has become a truly inspiring role model to many. This prayer card makes a special, inspirational keepsake or gift. Constructed on heavy cardstock, this lovely two-sided prayer card features a full color image of Carlo on the front and the official prayer on the back.
