Merely a word, a quick considered to keep in mind Don Giussani from the 7th anniversary of their death. Several times within these times my head moved returning to the language of Jesus that Giussani – picking them up from Paul VI – would duplicate during the decisive moments of life: “When the Son of Guy comes, will he find faith on the planet?” (Lk 18, 8). Whenever Jesus returns, will he nevertheless find faith on the planet? Since it is with this present that, most importantly, we now have need: faith.
