Message sent to CL on the occasion of Fr. Giussani death by Archbishop Jean Sleiman

Jean Sleiman Traces

4/1/2005

Reverend Father [Carrón]: I was moved by the news of the death of Msgr. Luigi Giussani. I did not know him personally, but I have an idea of his writings and have met some of his sons at work. I would like to express my esteem for this zealous and generous minister of God’s love for the Church, his intuitive and profound attention to the needs of contemporary man, his presentation of the faith in a courageous dialogue, the joy he gave back to so many people, the meaning of life and of commitment in a culture that often in the First World suffers the loss of meaning and values, the coherence between the message and the life of its bearer, which, in an exemplary witness of life, has borne great fruit in involving so many faithful. In our times, like the other great figures of our Church, Fr. Giussani has reconciled, that is, enriched the relationship between faith and reason.
Archbishop Jean Sleiman, ocd,
Latinate Archbishop of Bagdad
