This year, Fr. Giussani's words are accompanied by Matthias Stomer's, "The Adoration of the Shepherds".

"When John and Andrew found Christ, they didn’t understand the beyond, what paradise could mean, but they felt something there that was like a paradise, a piece of paradise: it was a piece of something Other. It already exists, it’s something present. Therefore, faith is to grasp, to recognize a present."

Luigi Giussani
