The Christian Good News responds positively to man’s thirst for justice. What then is the justice of Christ? Above all, it is the justice that comes from grace, where it is not man who makes amends, heals himself and others. Conversion to Christ ultimately means this: to exit the illusion of self‐sufficiency in order to discover and accept one’s own need‐ the need of others and God, the need of His forgiveness and His friendship. -- Benedict XVI
This is the point: God was moved by our nothingness. Not only that. God was moved by our betrayal, by our crude, forgetful, and treacherous poverty, by our pettiness. Like a father and mother who cry with emotion, a cry that is totally determined by the desire for the child’s good, the child’s destiny. It’s compassion, pity, passion. He had pity on me. -- Luigi Giussani
Procession begins at Coit Tower and proceeds through the historic North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, concluding for the Final Station at Porziuncola Nuova , 624 Vallejo St, San Francisco, CA
