#3: Holy Water through Marian Devotion with Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

A third way that we can become “holy water” for Christ like Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is through devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati had a deep devotion to the Virgin Mary, and it played a significant role in his life. 

In one of his letters to a friend, Pier Giorgio wrote about the importance of Mary in his life. He said:

“I cannot help but love our heavenly Mother with all my heart. She is the most perfect example of humility and charity, and it is through her that we are brought closer to her Son… In Mary we find everything that is pure, noble, and holy in human nature. Mary is the key to our spiritual life. She is our guide and our protector, and she leads us closer to her Son.”

Indeed, Pier Giorgio saw Mary as the best example of what it looks like to live as “holy water” for Christ – pouring forth Jesus’ abundant life to others with perfect humility and purity of soul. 

Pier Giorgio’s devotion to Mary was also evident in his personal prayer life. He often prayed the Rosary, and he encouraged his friends and family to do the same. In one of his letters, he wrote: 

““The Rosary is a powerful tool for strengthening our relationship with God and the Blessed Mother. It helps us to meditate on the mysteries of the faith and to grow in our love for Jesus and Mary… Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today.”

Pier Giorgio’s love for Mary was not just a personal devotion; it was also an inspiration for his work with the poor. He saw Mary’s example of love and service as a model for his own life. In one of his letters, he wrote:

“Mary is the perfect example of charity and service to others. It is through her that we can learn how to love others as Jesus loves us… Mary is the true star of evangelization, who shows us the way to bring Jesus to the world.”

In conclusion, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati shows us that Marian devotion is an enormous help in living as “holy water” for Christ in our pursuit of the Sea of Galilee way of life. May we too be inspired to imitate Blessed Pier Giorgio in his great love and deep devotion to the Virgin Mother of God.
