Fr. Julián Carrón: "The beauty and human value of a life entirely handed over to Christ"

6/27/2017 - Message for the ordinations of the Fraternity San Carlos

To the dearest
Father Marco Vignolo and Father Mattia Zuliani
and Antonio Acevedo, Michele Baggi, Emanuele Fadini, Luca Montini, Patrick Valena
Dear brothers,
I am spiritually close to you, and together with me the whole Movement of Communion
and Liberation participates in your joy, and that of the Priestly Fraternity, the Missionary
Sisters, your families, and your superiors in this time when, through the imposition of hands
of His Eminence Cardinal Angelo Scola, you have received the grace of the priesthood and
of the diaconate.
I am thankful for your definitive “yes” to the Lord, who in front of our eyes renews the
evidence of the beauty and human value of a life entirely handed over to Christ, which He
has mysteriously chosen and favored. I am asking the Lord that your life, conformed to
Christ the Savior, will truly be an instrument of His mercy and His salvation for the brothers
and sisters entrusted to you, and that you can daily live the memory of Christ which, as Pope
Francis reminded us, “allows us to dwell in love, to be mind-ful, never forgetting who it is
who loves us and whom we are called to love in return.” (Homily for Corpus Christi, 18
June 2017)
To remain in His love is possible when everyday we renew the grateful awareness of the
charism which has taken hold of us and continues to take hold of us, that of Father Giussani
which lives today for the benefit of the Church and of our fellowmen in life and in the
current form of the Movement, as it happens everyday. This is, I believe, the deepest reason
for the Priestly Fraternity begun by our dear Bishop Camisasca.
I ask you in your celebration of Holy Mass and in your prayers to entrust all the
communities throughout the word and the life of everyone, especially those who are most in
difficulty, to Our Lady, that she may help us to spend ourselves everyday for the human
glory of her Son.
Father Julián Carrón
