Blessed Carlo Acutis — on his way to becoming the first millennial saint — is a wonderful example of the “everyday holiness” that we can all strive for. Inspire young and old to remember him and ask for his intercession with these three die-cut vinyl stickers. They are easy to peel and stick to packages, notebooks, suitcases, lockers, laptops … or wherever you could use a reminder that anyone can strive for sainthood! This is a great little gift for any young Catholic in your life.
Carlo Acutis was a little “different” at school, in the pizzerias, and on the soccer field. What set Carlo apart was his constant pursuit of holiness. In addition to his fun hobbies, he spent time teaching catechism classes and serving in soup kitchens. Carlo loved to attend daily Mass and frequent Eucharistic adoration. The Word of God and the Eucharist were the center of his life. Carlo’s unwavering devotion to the Eucharist inspired him to tell the story of Eucharistic miracles through a website he created just for fun.
Carlo died from a sudden and violent illness in 2006 at the age of fifteen. In less than a decade, his story spread across Italy and around the world. After Pope Francis declared him venerable in 2018, his beatification was celebrated in Assisi on October 10, 2020. The next step will be canonization, making him the first millennial saint.
Superheroes are everywhere — in movies, on television, and in video games. It’s exciting to think about these extraordinary people with amazing powers who save us from evil and are a force for good in the world. But did you know that God has real-life superheroes of his own? They started out as ordinary people. Then something (God!) happened to them, and they changed.

Getting the keys to the family car has been a symbol of independence ever since there were cars. You’re not a kid anymore, and you can make your own choices — speed, route, direction, destination. It’s a fantastic journey that can take you nearly anywhere, as long as you follow the signs.
That’s a lot like your spiritual life. You can take the wheel of your faith, get out there, and go. And just like a good road trip, your spiritual life can be full of adventure, joy, and exhilaration. But there are also signs to watch out for and hazards to avoid.
