In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan… as we shiver into another year, its pages blank and ready to be written, January brings us hope and new beginnings. Perhaps a new book could bring inspiration, comfort or a challenge. “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.” Charles William Eliot (1834–1926)

Carlo is an 'unexpected saint', because he had all the characteristics of today's young people: a passion for life and IT, sport and friendship, and he also had a profound faith. Fascinated by eucharistic miracles, he began creating what would eventually become a website to catalogue and share the information with others.
