He lived his final days, through pain and suffering, the way he lived all of his life, in complete abandonment to Christ and His body, the Church, with unconditional gratitude.

As he clearly realized he was facing the end of his journey, full of awareness and peace and always surrounded by friends, he told us: "I lived a beautiful life; I always followed Christ. I will live as long as Christ wants me to live."

We pray that we may have the same affection for Christ, the Church, and Fr. Giussani as our beloved Monsignor had.

Information about visitation and funeral services for Msgr. Albacete is available here.
