Formigoni: Statement from Communion and Liberation

Official message from the CL Press Office following the confirmed conviction of Roberto Formigoni.

“If one part of the body suffers, all the parts suffer together,” (St. Paul). At this time, we are suffering together with Roberto Formigoni, in full awareness that ultimately only God can truly see a man’s heart, and only He can respond to the need for mercy we all have. We accompany him with our prayers during this dramatic circumstance, which is a powerful reminder to all of us of our call to conversion.

No one can erase Christ’s companionship in our lives, which allows us to always begin again, with the humble certainty that all things mysteriously work together for good: this is what we ask from the Father for Roberto and for ourselves.
