​An Italian Teen Who Died Aged Just 15 Could Become Patron Saint Of The Internet

Italian schoolboy Carlo Acutis taught himself how to programme and built up a website cataloguing miracles from around the world.

Now, the Vatican has credited Carlo with his own miracle - the 2013 healing of a six-year-old Brazilian boy who had a rare condition.

The youngster was reportedly close to death, when a priest began to pray to Carlo on his behalf and has since made a full recovery.

Carlo's mother, Antonia Salzano, told the Los Angeles Times: "The boy was vomiting and risked dying. Then, on the third day of prayers, he started eating."

She added: "We get news of miracles attributed to Carlo all the time.

"One woman was cured of her cancer after attending his funeral, and I heard of two more a few days ago."

Antonia said her son, who was born in London, was a normal teenager, but that he also had 'a special spiritual life and gifts on the Internet'.

Carlo, who died in 2006, will be beatified in Assisi, Italy, later this year, which is the final step before being made into a saint.
