The 2009 Lay Saints Calendar

Introduction to the 2009 Lay Saints Calendar:

”If you run through the list of Lay Saints, the first reaction is one of dizziness. An impression that you can only experience when faced with an abyss, of the emptiness of a bottomless precipice. It’s not a simple list. It’s a really long list. A list of murders of carabinieri of police officers, magistrates, politicians, journalists, priests, and citizens. It’s a river of blood that runs through our history. A massacre on which our Republic was born and on which it is living. Close your eyes and think of these men and women that have sacrificed their life for the State. And imagine their role in the leadership of this Nation, if they were still alive. Borsellino as President of the Republic, Falcone as Minister of Justice, Don Puglisi as Cardinal, Ambrosoli as President of the Council, Fava as editor of Il Corriere della Sera. Then open your eyes and see the desolate reality of “prescritti”, mafia folk, and convicts in Parliament and journalism in the hands of their servants. You will ask why so many gave up their lives. What motivated them? I believe that it was the conscience of each one that obliged them to do that. They simply had no other choice. They couldn’t turn the other way. Many knew that they were condemned. In this they were similar to Christ in the Gospels who accepted martyrdom, even though he could have escaped it. The honest ones are accepted only if they don’t denounce the System, that galaxy of organised crime, deviated Freemasonry and political corruption that governs Italy. Up until yesterday, in secret, today, in a shameless, blatant way. The System acts towards the honest people in stages. First it tries to buy them, then it threatens them. If it fails, then it isolates them, and if this is not enough, after isolating them, it kills them. Isolation by the institutions and by the media is an alarm bell. The last call. Hundreds of people have heard it and have kept going straight ahead. The streets and squares of Italy should be named after them. Those streets that the politicians want to dedicate to the fugitive Bettino Craxi. In front of Montecitorio there should be a plaque with their names in gold letters, in alphabetical order. My wish for 2009 is not to give up, to longer give up doing what you need to do, any more. No one is above the law and the delinquents need to be called by their names. Don’t turn away to the other side. Stay on your side. The Lay Saints, from up there, will give you a hand.
No, don’t say that you are discouraged, that you no longer want to know about it. Think that all this has happened because you didn’t want to know about it anymore” From the letter of Giacomo Ulivi, partisan, assassinated by the fascists in Piazza Grande, Modena on 10 November 1944".

The calendar is available as a free download in pdf format or at a freely-chosen price in the printed on glossy paper.
