About this Episode

“All people are born as originals but many die as photocopies.” - Venerable Carlo Acutis

Colin unpacks this quote from Carlo Acutis, a fifteen-year-old boy who died from leukemia in 2006. Carlo was normal kid who loved computers, film, and comics.

He also loved God, Mary, and the Church, and showed his love by doing three simple things: going to mass, going to confession, and praying the Rosary.

If we want to become the person God has planned for us to be, we can follow Carlo’s example and stay close to Christ and the Eucharist.


Go to Mass, go to confession, pray the Rosary.
