Anniversary masses: "That we may continue to better serve the Church"

Sixteen years since the death of Fr. Giussani, and thirty-nine years since the Papal recognition of the Fraternity of CL, we offer prayerful intentions for masses taking place in Italy and around the world.

“In the difficult circumstances we are called to share with all our brothers and sisters, we ask the Lord to grant us the watchful and grateful awareness of the gift received in our encounter with Fr. Giussani’s charism, that we may continue to better serve the Church, recognizing that Christ dwells in every passing instant and, therefore, nothing is useless; everything is a sign of an indestructible positivity”.

He said that there is nothing more impossible or more desirable than this new way of relating to others. It is the essence of the “shared human course”

The February issue is out now
