Carlo Acutis was an Italian Catholic teenager who is on the path to being declared a saint by the Catholic Church. He is best known for his devotion to the Eucharist, his computer programming skills which he used to create websites cataloging Eucharistic miracles, and for offering his sufferings from leukemia for the Pope and the Church before his death in 2006 at the age of 15. Carlo Acutis was beatified by Pope Francis in 2020, which is one step away from being declared a saint.
