A witness of our time. Lover of life, justice, truth. Italy knew his history from the pages of the newspapers, reading about his barbaric murder which took place on September 21, 1990, in Sicily by the Agrigento’s mafia, the “stidda.” Rosario Livatino was a martyr for the cause of justice. Judge and Christian, he lived his entire short life to accomplish a task to which he had felt called since he was a child: to be a judge was his vocation.
In this book there is his story, with the memories of those who knew him well and his personal reflections on justice, his discouragement confided to the secret diary, the dark nights of the soul that he lived before his tragic end, and also his invincible faith, his life of authentic charity which makes him today a witness, pointed out by the Catholic Church as a model.
Published in 2021 with the important news concerning his cause of beatification, this book tells the story of Judge Rosario Livatino, killed by the Agrigento’s mafia and recognized as a “martyr of the faith” by Pope Francis, to be raised to glory altars as blessed on May 9, 2021.
“Rosario Livatino. Justice Requires Love” is a book that tells you Rosario Livatino and the deep meaning of his life and his ideals, as a legacy to be passed on to the younger generations: justice requires love.
“A book that tells the story of Judge Rosario Livatino and also highlights his thoughts, illuminating reflections on the relationship between justice and charity, what it means to exercise justice in a noble way, with love. Very well written, with passion and accuracy, I really liked this book.” (Peter Paul, verified customer)
For me, it is a joy to have written it, and today May 9, 2021, is a great day, which I have long awaited through the years. I am happy to share it with you.
