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 the glory of the altars on May 9, 2021.
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 life, 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.
“Rosario Livatino. Justice Requires Love” by Maria Amata Di Lorenzo is a book that tells us 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, with illuminating reflections on the relationship between justice and charity, and 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)
“I recently came to know of Blessed Rosario Livatino since I am working in the legal field and found him very relatable and inspirational. I am not Italian so this is by far, the only English book I can find. Yet, I am really happen with how this book paints his life in words. The author even included a chapter explaining the rise of the mafia in order to give us a better understanding of the context that Blessed Rosario Livatino lived in and how that affected him and the people of his town… I know have a better insight on the life of Blessed Martyr and his inspiration and heavenly intercession has greatly helped me in my life as well.
Thank you to the author Maria Amata Di Lorenzo! You have done a great service in your work!” (Shirz, verified customer)
