Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati Giveaway

I like to occasionally give away things in honor a saint or blessed's feast day, especially if I have a special devotion or gratitude to that particular saint. I'm pretty sure y'all know how much I admire Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati by now so it should come as no surprise that I will be giving away a couple of books written by his sister, Luciana Frassati. The giveaway include the books My Brother Pier Giorgio: His Last Days and A Man of the Beatitudes: Pier Giorgio Frassati (which I hope to write a review for some time this weekend) as well as some prayer cards.

Just like the St. Dymphna giveaway, all you have to do is DM (on twitter) or email me the answers. The winners will be randomly selected and notified on Sunday morning. The contest starts as soon as this post goes up and ends at the end of Bl. Pier Giorgio's feast day (Saturday night at 11:59 p.m. PST). Sound good? Great. :) (Oh, and for the record, I am willing to send it anywhere as long as you tell me where to send it. Yes, even if you're in Australia or somewhere in Europe.)

1) Who beatified Bl. Pier Giorgio?
2) What was the date of his beatification?
3) He is often called "a man of the Beatitudes." What are the 8 Beatitudes?
4) Which order did he join, at the age of 21?
5) True or false: His body was found incorrupt in 1981, 56 years after his death.

Good luck to all!

That's all for now. I need to get ready to visit dad. He's finally at the convalescent hospital where my mom works. He was doing very well yesterday, acting very silly/funny from the anesthetic they gave him prior to the dialysis, but he's been in a lot of pain today. Hopefully they'll get something stronger for him since the medicine they gave him earlier didn't do the job. I hope he feels better soon. Did I mention he's been able to eat solid foods and drink liquids again? That's always a good sign! :)

Again, good luck to all! Thanks for your continued prayers for my dad, especially those who've begun novenas and prayers to Bl. Pier Giorgio for his intercession. :D God Bless!

P.S. Look out for a St. Maria Goretti giveaway that I've been wanting to do since last year. :)
