The Pope declared that a London-born teenager who died of leukemia in 2006 is qualified to become the first millennial saint.

Carlo Acutis posted about the teachings of the Catholic church online and reportedly became known as “God’s influencer.”

Acutis, 15 when he died, was beatified in 2020, which is the first step toward officially becoming a saint.

He has been credited with healing Brazilian child of a “congenital disease affecting his pancreas,” according to a report.

Pope Francis on Thursday credited Acutis with a second miracle involving the “healing of a university student in Florence who had a brain bleed after suffering head trauma.”
