Cardinal Agostino Vallini, the papal legate for the Assisi basilicas, said during his homily for the late teenager: 'Carlo used the internet in service of the Gospel, to reach as many people as possible'.
He has been nicknamed 'the Patron Saint of the Internet, ' after he created a website to record miracles, as well as also managing various sites for local Catholic organizations before his death.
Acutis was born in London in 1991 but spent his life in Milan, Italy, before passing away from leukaemia at just 15 years of age. Already as a small youngster, he confirmed a powerful spiritual devotion that shocked his non-practicing dad and mom. His mother told the Corriere della Sera newspaper that from age 3 he would ask to visit churches they passed in Milan, and by age 7 had asked to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion, winning an exception to the customary age requirement.
She said he used his savings to buy sleeping bags for the homeless and volunteered at a soup kitchen.
People stood in line to pray before the tomb of Carlo Acutis, located in Assisi's Sanctuary of the Spoliation in the Church of St. Mary Major.
His curiosity prompted her to study theology in order to answer his questions, renewing her own faith.
Carlo Acutis, 15, died in 2006 in hospital in Monza, Italy.
As Acutis once said: "When we face the sun we get a tan. but when we stand before Jesus in the Eucharist we become saints".
Disaster Risk Reduction: Rep nudges government to put in place strategic framework

He had been set on the path to sainthood later Pope Francis declared a miracle attributed to Acutis: The recovery of a 7-year-old Brazilian boy by a rare pancreatic disease after coming into contact with an Acutis relic, a bit of one of his T-shirts.
"I was convinced that he was a saint while living. He healed a woman from cancer, praying to the Madonna of Pompeii", his mother told Corriere.
Carlos will officially become a saint if the Vatican verifies that he carried out a second miracle.
He asked to be buried at Assisi because of his love for St. Francis of Assisi. His whole physique, clad in a tracksuit and sneakers, was on show for veneration at a refuge from the city, and his coronary heart goes to be displayed in a reliquary on the St. Francis Basilica.
On Saturday, he was beatified at a ceremony in the town of Assisi and moved one step closer to sainthood.
Acutis advised his mum he would current her many indications of his existence after departure.
"Earlier than he left us, I informed him: If in heaven you discover our four-legged mates, search for Billy, my childhood canine that he by no means knew", the mom stated. "1 day she obtained a name from an aunt who had been oblivious of the mother-son pact, stating" I watched Carlo in a dream tonight.
