The Medical Council of the Congregation for Saints’ Causes has expressed a positive opinion on an alleged miracle attributed to the intercession of young Carlo Acutis, who died of leukemia at age 15 in 2006. He was declared venerable in 2018.
The miracle regards the healing of a gravely ill boy in Brazil.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Carlo’s body was found incorrupt.
The youth is known for his interest in technology. One of Carlo’s most significant computer ventures was cataloguing all the Eucharistic miracles of the world. He started the project when he was 11 years old and wrote at the time, “The more Eucharist we receive, the more we will become like Jesus, so that on this earth we will have a foretaste of Heaven.”
The Catalogue of the Vatican International Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles of the World, of which Carlo Acutis first had the idea of producing the exhibition and helped to realize its fulfillment, can be obtained by contacting Eternal Life: www.lifeeternal.org 800-842-2871
