Luigi Giussani: February 2012 Archives

LGiussani.jpgFather Julián Carrón, the President of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation, the ecclesial movement founded Father Luigi Giussani (who died 7 years ago today) and which was approved by the Church 30 years this past February 11, gave the preliminary research to Angelo Cardinal Scola, Archbishop of Milan, to open the diocesan phase of investigating the eventual beatification and canonization of Father Luigi Giussani.

"On the 30th Anniversary of the Pope's recognition of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation, we ask the Lord for the gratitude for the meeting with Father Giussani's charisma to become a renewed responsibility every day for our Destiny and that of all our human brothers, in our indomitable faithfulness to the Church in history's joyous and tragic events. So let us say a special prayer for the Holy Father, invoking upon him the comfort of the Holy Spirit in this moment of great chaos."

For the coming year we will be working on Giussani's At the Origin of the Christian Claim. On January 25, 2012, at the Teatro degli Arcimboldi, Milan, Father Julián Carrón's made a presentation of Father Luigi Giussani's book. 

That presentation is noted here: Christ is something that is happening to me now.pdf

Quoting Don Giussani, 

Et incarnatus est-Father Giussani says-"is singing at its purest, when all man's straining melts in the original clarity, the absolute purity of the gaze that sees and recognizes. Et incarnatus est is contemplation and entreaty at the same time, a stream of peace and joy welling up from the heart's wonder at being placed before the arrival of what it has been waiting for, the miracle of the fulfillment of its quest. [...]

As we approach the 30th anniversary of papal approval of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation on February 11th, let's call on the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and Saint Benedict, co-patrons of the Movement to guide our way to the Word Made Flesh.
