Brandon Vogt interviews Abp Peter Sartain on Pier Giorgio Frassati. I’ll be speaking at the Frassati conference at St Mary Star of the Sea in Seattle on Saturday, Oct 19.
As for “partying,” he knew how to enjoy life and desired to help others enjoy life, too. We have to be leery of thinking of his “partying” in 21st century terms. Here we’re talking about the way he enjoyed social time with his friends. He was a jokester and wanted others to enjoy themselves. He wanted to encourage their friendship because he knew that true, faith-filled friendship is a gift of God. He also knew that joy is a sure sign of a person in love with God.
