Among those eagerly anticipating the canonization is Antonia Salzano, the mother of Carlo Acutis. In an intimate interview with Currents News, she shared her memories of raising Carlo, from the snowball fights to the superhero costumes and birthday celebrations. To her, he was just an ordinary child, now on the path to sainthood.
