.- Members of the movement Communion and Liberation will have an audience with Pope Benedict XVI in St. Peter’s Square on March 24 in order to mark the 25th anniversary of their Pontifical recognition.
 
The president of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation, Father Julian Carron, has invited members to appropriately prepare to go to Rome as “a sign of simple and total adherence” to the person of the Pope, the steadfast guide without whom the Catholic faith would descend “into one of the many ideological variants that dominate the world.”
 
“The power of the Spirit, linked to his ministry, is the guarantee of the presence of Christ in history.  With this in mind we should present ourselves to the Holy Father, with that childlike devotion that has been instilled in us,” he wrote in a letter to members of the movement.
 
Father Carron recalled that Benedict XVI “has had and continues to have a very singular relationship with our history for which we feel especially close to him. He knows us well, just as he knew Father Guissani (the founder of CL) well; we all had to chance to see him at his funeral” when he was still a Cardinal.
 
Father Carron expressed his hope that the Pontiff would “address to us words that will enlighten our path in this so very decisive moment of our history, of the history of the Church and of the world.”
 
In this sense, after recalling his audience with John Paul II, Father Carron invited all CL members to prepare themselves for “the encounter with Benedict XVI, praying to the Virgin Mary during your daily Angelus, and to Father Giussani for an attentive disposition to listen to him and follow him.”
