Luigi Giussani: November 2009 Archives

The Christian event is the answer to the demand for the infinite which is the heart of man. So that man may walk along: "homo viator," a man who draws near by the movement that has been put into him, that has been brought forth in him by the Mystery which makes all things and of which he is made aware by the encounter, the encounters of life.

Monsignor Luigi Giussani, Founder of Communion and Liberation
Monsignor Giussani, with his fearless and unfailing faith, knew that, even in this situation, Christ, the encounter with Him, remains central, because whoever does not give God, gives too little, and whoever does not give God, whoever does not make people find God in the Fact of Christ, does not build, but destroys, because he gets human activity lost in ideological and false dogmatisms. Fr Giussani kept the centrality of Christ and, exactly in this way, with social works, with necessary service, he helped mankind in this difficult world, where the responsibility of Christians for the poor in the world is enormous and urgent.

(Pope Benedict XVI, Funeral Homily for Msgr Luigi Giussani, 24 February 2005, Milan)
