By announcing, on July 19, 2018, that he would canonize the young Italian layman Nunzio Sulprizio (1817-1836) on October 14, during the Synod of Bishops on Youth, Pope Francis gives a model to young people.
A young orphan, Nunzio was raised by his maternal grandmother until he was nine. At the death of the latter, he is gathered by an uncle, who exploited and mistreated him mercilessly. As often as he could, Nunzio took refuge in front of the Tabernacle to be in the company of Jesus.
Afflicted by gangrene in one leg, he was sent to the Hospital of the Incurables
