"Carlo Acutis" to become the first saint of the millennial generation.

Italian teenager Carlo Acutis, known as "God's Influencer", is set to become the first saint of the millennial generation.

Carlo Acutis died of leukemia in 2006 at the age of 15. Born in London, he grew up in Milan where he managed the website for his parish and later a Vatican-based academy. He also used his computer skills to create an online database of Eucharistic miracles around the world. Carlo Acutis died at the age of 15 from leukemia in 2006. He was beatified in 2020 after healing a Brazilian child of a congenital disease affecting his pancreas.

On Thursday, Pope Francis attributed a second miracle to Acutis, which involved the healing of a university student in Florence who had a brain bleed after suffering head trauma. This means he can be elevated to sainthood.

Acutis died in Monza, Italy, and was named a patron of World Youth Day in Lisbon. He was also advanced sainthood causes for six men and a woman.
