Only a term, a thought that is brief keep in mind Don Giussani from the 7th anniversary of his death. Several times in these times my head went back once again 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 in the world? Because it is of the present that, most importantly, we now have need: faith. Once the Lord returns, will he nevertheless find faith on the planet? We are in need of faith instant by instant, minute by minute.
