Patron Saint of the Internet? Carlo Acutis to Be Beatified

I think Carlo Acutis should be formally named the patron saint of the internet. I wrote about it when his beatification was announced.

Ven. Carlo Acutis is the ideal candidate for the patron saint of the internet. He created a database of Eucharistic miracles on a website so people could find out about them all while he was still a teenager. If you’ve seen a traveling exhibit with displays on different Eucharistic miracles, this is based right off his site.

On Friday, Pope Francis approved a miracle in his case and this allows beatification to be scheduled. As he is the first saint to have extensively used the internet and the first saint who is most known for something he did online, I want to propose him as the patron saint of the Internet.
