Papal praise for Communion and Liberation movement founders
CWN - February 07, 2013
Pope Benedict XVI paid tribute to Don Luigi Guissani, the founder of the Communion and Liberation movement, during a February 7 audience with members of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Charles Borromeo, an offshoot of the lay movement.
The Pope spoke of “the faith, the joy, the strength and wealth of ideas, and the creativity of the faith” of Don Guissani, and said that he had also come to appreciate the lay movement because of the “great friendship between us.”
Pope Benedict also praised Bishop Massimo Camisasca, who established the Priestly Fraternity of St. Charles Borromeo before his priestly ordination. In Bishop Camisasca, too, the Pope said, he appreciated “his artistic creativity, his capacity to see and interpret the signs of the times and his great gift as an educator and priest.” Bishop Camisasca now heads the Diocese of Reggio Emilia-Guastella in Italy.
