The Man of the Beatitudes Pier Giorgio's work was not confined to mere political struggle and revolt. He was against violence, but was prepared to fight and die, if necessary, to defend Christ. He repeatedly wrote and advocated the following: "When all accept Christ' voice and teaching, we will be able to say we are all equal, and every difference between human beings will be annulled.' The Beatitudes have come alive.! 2000 years have passed since the Savior gave us this how-to-live in the world if we would grab onto the rope and scale the mountain of life to God's goal for us - eternal life with Him in Heaven. His words, Verso l'alto, Upward!, ring forth over the continents and will live on touching all, helping all! This story is ageless, and timeless, as those, Pier Giorgio, even now, is calling us to love - our neighbors, as Jesus loves them and us. Pier Giorgio will not be silenced. If you stop and listen, you can hear him even now. Scenes from his home in Italy the Shrines he visited the place of his death and from World Youth day. Discover his beautiful quotes and writings. His motto - Verso l'alto "Always upward!"
