"May it become [...] habitual to perceive in all things - in everything, from the boughs of the tree to the hairs of the person you like -- the presence of the Mystery that became a man in flesh and blood... Getting used to seeing this in everything is a history that God allowed you to begin."

Servant of God Father Luigi Giussani

As the 2012 elections draw near, we are all encouraged to evaluate where we stand and where we're heading as a country, since we all belong to one nation that has a common good. Particularly in this moment, when so many of our fellow countrymen suffer from unemployment and economic distress, we know that many long for improvement in their lives. All the same, we don't believe this election will magically solve the gravest problems that America faces. Legislation, policies, and programs--no matter how perfect--depend on the freedom of flawed human beings like us.

Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete

Michael Sean Winters' op-ed pieces aren't always to my liking. But so what. We all don't have to agree, do we? There are time writes that he does write some informative articles. Since a friend sent me this NCR article on a friend, Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete, I thought I would post it here for others who may have missed the original June 28, 2012 posting.

Winters writes, "Msgr. Albacete introduced me to many of the people I now consider dear friends. Of course, there are the good people of Communione e Liberazione, who have a charism for friendship." Yes. He did. Thanks be to God for Lorenzo.

In case you've not read Msgr. Albacete's book, God at the Ritz, please do so. You'll find it good, challenging and helpful for the spiritual life.
Call of St Matthew brugghen.jpgLast Sunday many of the communities of Communion and Liberation around the USA met for a "Beginning Day". We met in NYC to hear the national leader of CL, Chris Bacich, make a presentation, to listen to Father Julián Carrón's presentation and to pray the Mass. About 100 CL in NY attended. Notes on the Day later. But in the meantime, expect a journey, not a miracle; journey in faith is made in experience of what Jesus gives us to live.

Father Julián Carrón's text is available here: Life as Vocation 2012 eng.pdf

Our work in the School of Community and in the life of the community only is made possible if we beg the Holy Spirit to guide our steps. Our prayer, then, is Veni, creator Spiritus, mentes tuorum vista, imple superna gratia, quæ tu creasti pectora.
