The words of the Pope and of Fr. Giussani accompany a photograph of the Way of the Cross of university students, led by the founder of CL in 1976 (also in video format).

Christ’s resurrection is not an event of the past; it contains a vital power which has permeated this world. Where all seems to be dead, signs of the resurrection suddenly spring up. It is an irresistible force. Often it seems that God does not exist: all around us we see persistent injustice, evil, indifference and cruelty. But it is also true that in the midst of darkness something new always springs to life and sooner or later produces fruit. On razed land life breaks through, stubbornly yet invincibly.
Pope Francis

Christ is the life of my life: in Him is summed up all that I would desire, all that I look for, all that I sacrifice, all that develops in me out of love for the persons with whom He has put me. Christ is a man who lived as everybody else two thousand years ago, but who, risen from the dead, invested by the power of the Mystery–in which by then He participated in His own nature–takes hold of us day after day, hour after hour, action after action.
Luigi Giussani
