Francesca : “I was struck by the way they accepted themselves the way they were always beginning again trying to be better.”

Lorenzo : "A powerful message has been sent, but at the same time universal, from the simplicity of the experiences of these two guys. They can be an encouragement for each one of us, because they teach us to see the person in front of us as an occasion and not an obstacle. Thank you."

Rosamaria: " I read the story of Carlo Grisolia on and was very excited. If we had a little bit of Carlo and Alberto in each one of us … the world would be better and we’d manage to accept the daily problems."

Paolo : “ Like, Alberto, I’m in love with the mountains too. I’m convinced that knowing how to make the effort in the company of others on the ascent is the secret to living our lives in a great way. The next time I’m on top of a mountain, I’ll say a prayer to these two guys.”

Silvia: "For me they’re a door that constantly opens to God, a burning light that shines every time the darkness comes and I feel like abandoning everything and giving up loving.”

Lord, Jesus, crucified and forsaken who in the mystery of your life, death and resurrection have manifested your infinite love for us, we pray that you grant us to follow the example of Alberto and Carlo by growing in friendship with You and each other until we reach the fullness of the Christian life. Through their intercession, we ask you to grant what we ask. (Here mention your petition.) Amen.
