When Carlo Acutis became "Blessed Carlo Acutis" in Assisi on October 10, 2020, it was unlike any other beatification in history.

Why?

His mother, father, and 10-year-old twin siblings attended the beatification, along with several of his friends from junior high and high school!

Carlo died suddenly at age 15, but then appeared in a dream to his mother saying, "I will be beatified soon, and shortly after, canonized a saint."

Get this book--and dive into the amazing life of a teenage boy who died in 2006--and has already begun to intercede with miracles from Heaven!

You'll follow along, step-by-step, the methodical process the Catholic Church follows to determine who is in Heaven, and the miracles which revealed that Carlo was already there. 

Extensively researched and incorporating details from official Church documents and personal interviews with Blessed Carlo's mother, you'll learn:

  • What miracles astounded him so much that he created a website to share them with the world?
  • What simple habits did he incorporate into his life, plus the weaknesses he struggled with?
  • What did he call his "kit" for becoming a saint, which fits the lives of modern children and teens?
  • What was the miracle--7 years to the day of his death--which led to the beatification?
  • What still remains before the Church can recognize him as "Saint Carlo Acutis"?

If your child has ever wondered, "how does someone become a Saint?" then this is the book for them!

 

AND---if your child loved Holy Mysteries!, this is a great next book!

"Blessed Carlo Acutis" by Sabrina Arena Ferrisi is an intimate look into the life of a truly beautiful soul who brought joy to everyone around him and continues to minister to the world through his witness and his intercession in Heaven.  I greatly enjoyed the firsthand accounts of Carlo's life from people who were close to him and seeing all the photos of Carlo in the places, and with the people, he loved the most.  The book loses no opportunity to provide practical ways that readers can grow closer to Christ through Carlo's example including Carlo's "kit" for becoming a saint. I highly recommend this book to anyone getting to know Carlo as possibly the best written to date on this saintly teen who has much to teach young and old alike.

 "Holy Heroes has given Catholic families a gift in this book about Carlo Acutis. I thought this was going to be a great read for my four sons, and it turns out that this book is written for me, too. The story of Carlo’s life is shared beautifully, with photos and screen shots of his website included. The relevant information about saints, relics, and miracles answer questions kids and adults alike often have. I learned more about saints while reading it. I know this book will be read over and over in our home!”

-- Gina Fensterer, Author and Mother

"Outside of Christ, the saints are our greatest teachers. Bl. Carlo Acutis lived the Eucharistic life to the fullest, always using his time for God's glory. Here is a teenager, a modern day version of St. Francis of Assisi and Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati, who beckons us to become poured out like Christ for others. At the same time, Bl. Carlo reminds us to become "original" and not "photocopies" of other people. Those who read this book, especially our youth, will discover an ordinary soul who loved extraordinarily.”

-- Patrick O'Hearn, author of Parents of the Saints: The Hidden Heroes Behind Our Favorite Saints

We love Blessed Carlo Acutis and had yet to find a book that wasn’t written for babies and adults for my elementary age children. This book is perfect! My children have loved learning about one of their favorite Saints on a reading level that’s perfect for them. The pictures are so great and really bring this future Saint to life. Highly recommend this book!
