Carlo Acutis was beatified on 10th October in Assisi. His positive use of the internet, highlighted by Pope Francis in Christus Vivit makes his beatification particularly appropriate for the times we are living through.
As Carlo was born in East London his beatification is of special importance to the Church in England and Wales. The CYMFed has produced resources to be used in schools: these include a video message from Cardinal Vincent, reflections and Carlo’s life story brought to life through a short animated film and a prayer for young people. These are now available on the CYMFed’s You Tube and Vimeo channels and also on the CYMFed website.
