The Miraculous Power of Carlo Acutis: Here's the Official Prayer for the Future Saint's Intercession

Carlo Acutis is set to become the first millennial saint!

The Vatican broke the exciting news last week.

Blessed Carlo Acutis is known for his deep love of the Eucharist and Blessed Mother. He launched an entire website dedicated to Eucharistic miracles and attended daily mass. You can find more on Blessed Carlo Acutis here.

According to ACI Prensa,

“The miracle of the healing of the child Matheus caused him to be proclaimed blessed on October 10, 2020 in the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi, in the presence of his parents Andrea Acutis and Antonia Salzano.On May 23, 2024, Pope Francis approved a new miracle attributed to his intercession, for which he will be proclaimed a saint: the inexplicable healing of Valeria Valverde, a young Costa Rican woman who was on the verge of death due to an accident.”

In addition to the recognized miracles leading to his beatification and, eventually, his canonization, people shared the power of his intercession in their lives across social media when the news broke of his future canonization.

Seeking the intercession of our saintly brothers and sisters in heaven is a practice deeply rooted in scripture and Christian tradition. As Catholics, we believe that canonized saints–individuals recognized by the Church for their exceptional lives of holiness–have a special role in delivering our prayers and petitions.

Below you will find the official prayer requesting the intercession of future Saint Carlo Acutis:

Oh God, our Father, thank you for giving us Carlo,
a model of life for young people
and a message of love for all.
You have made him fall in love
with your son Jesus,
making the Eucharist
his “highway to heaven.”

You have given him Mary
as a very beloved Mother,
and you have made him,
with her Rosary,
become a singer of her tenderness.
She welcomes his intercession for us.
He looks above all at the poor,
whom he loved and helped.

[Grant me also, through his intercession, the grace I need…]

And make our joy full,
leading Carlo among the saints
of the universal Church,
so that his smile continues
to shine for us and for the glory of your name.


Pray an Our Father, a Hail Mary, and a Glory Be.

Imprimatur + Domenico Sorrentino Bishop of Assisi Nocera Umbra Gualdo Tadino Foligno
