New book by Peruvian founder released at Pontifical Catholic University of Chile

.- The new book “Formacion y Mision” (Formation and Mission) by Luis Fernando Figari, superior general of the Sodalitium Christianae Vitae and founder of the Christian Life Movement, was released this week in Santiago, Chile.

The presentation of the book took place at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile located in central Santiago, before a packed auditorium.

The 200-page book was presented by four prominent Chilean intellectuals in a ceremony lasting almost two hours.  The book will soon be translated into English.

The presenters were writer and journalist Magdalena Ossandon, philosopher Fernando Moreno, member of the Chilean Academy of Political, Social and Moral Sciences; Father Fernando Retamal, canonist and professor at the Pontifical University; and philosopher Jaime Antunez, director of the magazine “Humanitas.”

The ceremony ended with remarks by Figari, who explained that due to the weakening of man’s identity as a creature of God and the crushing process of dehumanization, the formation of the laity is essential for reaffirming their Catholic identity and becoming more converted to the Lord. When this happens he can experience the fervor of the Apostle Paul and exclaim, “Woe to me if I do not spread the Gospel!”
