For many, today is George Washington's Birthday. But, for a smaller number of us, today is the day on which Don Luigi Giussani was called home to God. I have never formally been a member of Communione e Liberazione, but I can say of Giussani's books what I can say of precious few other books - they changed my life, opening a window into our Catholic faith that I had not known of previously and through which I have since viewed our Church. Just today, someone said to me, "You are so CL!" which I took as a great compliment. I am not a person given to regrets, but I do regret that I never had the chance to meet this man who has so profoundly touched the life of the Church and so many of the flock.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
