All at once, Manfredini took me (Giussani) by the arm and stopped me; I don’t know how, but I looked him in the face and he said these exact words to me, which made me shudder: “To think that God became man is something out of this world!” Then I walked on and he went ahead of me. The heart of that classmate of mine was full of emotion at the greatest announcement that ever rang out in this world…. And while he went down the stairs faster than before, ahead of me, I shouted to him (“shouted” as loud as I dared in that period of silence), “It is something out of this world, in this world!” [Luigi Giussani]
