The Patron Saint of The Internet

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

A cooler contingency of Catholics is campaigning for Carlo Acutis to become the Patron Saint of the Internet. Acutis died of leukemia in 2007 and the campaign to earn him sainthood began as soon as the 5-year obligatory wait was up.

To achieve sainthood, one must have performed verified miracles. Acutis is said to have performed at least one by healing a boy in Brazil.

By why the saint of the Internet? He was known to have been web-savvy and enjoyed video games.

If there can be a Patron Saint of accountants (St. Matthew), why not a Patron Saint of the Internet? God knows the Internet could use some sanctification!
