Death of Fr. Giussani 22nd February, 2005

2/22/2005

The text sent by Fr Julián Carrón, leader of Communion and Liberation, to the all the communities of CL throughout the world:


Dear Friends,

At 3:10 a.m. on February 22nd, Feast of the Chair of St Peter, the Lord called our dear Fr Giussani.

Sure in the hope of the Resurrection, through intense pain at this separation, in Christ's embrace we more than ever acknowledge as father him, who now contemplates the Presence, so dear to him, of Jesus Christ, whom he taught to know and love throughout his whole life as the total consistency of all things and of every relationship.
Entrusting us all to our Lady, "the living fount of hope," we ask all the communities to celebrate the Eucharist. Thankful for the life of Fr Giussani, let us ask that his faith, hope and charity become more and more our own.

For the Presidency,
Julián Carron
