Although many miracles may perhaps be attributed to the intercession of Blessed Frassati, the Church officially recognized the healing of Domenico Sellan in 1933. At the time, Domenico was 40 years old and suffering from a tubercular disease of the spine, paralyzed and nearing death. A priest visited him on December 28, 1933, and brought him a small prayer card of Pier Giorgio (whose cause for canonization was opened soon after his death.) Domenico was miraculously cured and lived another 35 years.
It wasn't until 1989 that the documentation of this miracle received final approval. Pier Giorgio Frassati was declared "Blessed" the following year on May 20, 1990. Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati...pray for us!
