Oil Dedicated to Carlo Grisolia
Carlo Grisolia, of Bolognese origins.
Being able to face everyday problems and difficulties together helped them to live difficult moments and to overcome the temptation to stop and let go. The Church has introduced their cause for beatification.
This and nothing else he must love, live and testify in the normality of the daily acts of an enthusiastic boy. In love with life, brilliant in engineering studies. He has the makings of a leader. And uses it to weave lasting relationships with friends, especially the GEN. But also with the many dispossessed he goes to find in the alleys of his Genoa. He lives in the Eucharist and daily communion becomes his indispensable daily appointment. Even at the cost of authentic balancing between study.
The commitments of charity and the various meetings of which it is the soul and the fulcrum. In his search for authentic love he discovers purity as a tool. To achieve true freedom and shares this ideal with friends. In particular with Carlo Grisolia, made of his own dough, even if very different from him. For interests and potential. and charisms. Alberto likes the mountains as much as Carlo likes to read, play and write poetry.
From them, especially from Chiara Lubich who gave him the new name of “Vir”. That is “strong man”, he learned the strategy of “becoming saints together”. Which becomes a concrete goal when he meets Alberto in the GEN group of Val Bisagno.
An enviable spiritual partnership is established between the two. In the common effort to “keep Jesus in the midst”. To the point that each experiences difficulties, struggles, failures, conquests, becoming mutual support in the common path towards holiness.
