The Roman Catholic Church has counted among the blessed 15-year-old Carlo Akutis, who was fond of programming. The boy died of leukemia in 2006, but even during his lifetime and after his death he attracted the attention of the Church. There is already talk that in the future a teenager can be considered a saint as a “patron of the Internet.
What makes him so unusual is the fact that he was the most ordinary man. We tell people that the guy you should follow was very much like you.
Since he was 7 years old, Carlo went to masses every day and had the communion once a week. He bought sleeping bags for the homeless, he knew many tramps by names. He prayed for sinners, protected children, especially disabled children, who were bullied at school.
When he was 9 years old, Carlo was fond of programming – he took up textbooks, studied graphic design. The young computer genius developed websites of local religious organizations and developed a website with a full list and description of all Eucharistic miracles.
In 2013, a prayer service was held in Brazil in honor of Carlo, attended by a six-year-old boy with a split pancreas. It is known that the child prayed and touched a fragment of Carlo’s T-shirt, and three days later doctors stated: the anomaly has disappeared.
“The Vatican, represented by Pope Francis, today promotes the idea of digitalization of society. In fact, he has come into contact with large corporations, IT companies, banks and promotes their interests.
“Carlo Akutis did a unique thing – he used the Internet to reveal eucharistic wonders. The Eucharist is the center of religion itself, it is on the sacrament of the Eucharist that the Church stands, – says the expert. – The 15-year-old boy did not think about entertainment, not to correspond with friends, play shooters, and created, having some programming skills, a map of Eucharistic miracles and repeatedly distributed it. If we speak the language of the Church, it is nothing more than a testimony of Christ, that is, he used modern technology for evangelization.
