Curial cardinal pays tribute to Communion and Liberation founder

Catholic World News - October 10, 2013

The prefect of the Congregation for Bishops paid tribute to Msgr. Luigi Giussani (1922-2005), the founder of the Communion and Liberation movement, in a speech marking the release of Vita di don Giussani, a new biography.

“Don Giussani discovered with consternation the growing gap between the formal piety of youth and their intellectual culture, increasingly foreign to the mystery of faith,” said Cardinal Marc Ouellet, as quoted in the Vatican newspaper. “To overcome this divorce between faith and life, he created an original and provocative method forcing youth to take a position in accord with personal convictions.”
