What is Adoration and why should I sign up?
“A month before his death at the age of 24, Pier Giorgio Frassati and some of his friends had been climbing in the Val di Lanzo, where some difficult points had to be overcome by climbing or by using a double rope. On the back of the photo which shows him holding onto the rock gazing up toward his goal, he later wrote the words, "Verso l'alto" – or, in English, ‘toward the top.’ It is a short phrase which was the synthesis of his way of life: always seeking what enhances, that which carries us beyond ourselves, toward the best we can be as people, toward the best of ourselves. It is to strive toward perfection of life; in other words, toward sainthood. It means to strive toward the source of life: God.”
