"Open Christianity" by Fr Giussani (1960)

Yesterday at the School of Community I mentioned a short piece written by Fr Giussani back in 1960, which summed up his experience of teaching the Faith to that point.

The 'open' Christianity he talks about is a Christianity open to reality and the human desire for the infinite. And so, as he reminds us in this article, it is only by "recalling the structural needs of the human and Christian conscience we can stir that energy and determination from which alone is born conviction and then enthusiasm".
