Masses for the 19th anniversary of Fr. Giussani's death

On the occasion of the 19th anniversary of the death of the Servant of God Fr. Luigi Giussani (Feb. 22, 2005) and the 42nd anniversary of the pontifical recognition of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation (February 11, 1982), Masses are scheduled to be celebrated and around the world, presided over by cardinals and bishops.

The intention of the Masses is as follows:
Grateful for the gift of the charism given by the Holy Spirit to Fr. Giussani, we desire to serve the Church and her pastors with all our energy, certain that only in the daily following of Christ and His Vicar is it possible to live true unity among ourselves and to serve the good of the people of our time.
May Mary Queen of Peace guide the path of the whole movement and intercede for peace in the world.
