Prayer to Blessed Carlo Acutis
Blessed Carlo, You knew the power of technology and used it to proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ.
You also knew the dangers of technology and were intentional in your efforts to guard your heart against them.
You used the gifts you had in this world to bless others through radical charity, through seeing Christ in the face of those ignored by society, through the witness of friendship, and through your natural aptitudes with technology.
In our world so broken by abuses of technology and which so often ignores or attacks human dignity, please intercede for us to God the Father so we may see the human dignity of everyone we encounter and ask for guidance from the Lord whenever we may be tempted to violate that dignity in our online interactions.
Blessed Carlo Acutis, pray that we may treat our ever-evolving connections with developing technology as an opportunity to see the grace of God at work, even in the complexities of our modern world. Amen.
