“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”.
