Is it possible to read the liturgy in everyday life? Can we, as Christians, make it speak to us outside of ritual?
These are the questions that author Fr. Alessandro Dehò proposes for each of us in his recently published book, Desire. For a liturgy of life. For Fr. Alessandro “celebrating the Word, making it a liturgy, is letting it penetrate like a blade, and letting itself be opened by a cut that will not allow it to remain the same as before, is accepting to penetrate into the deepest abyss of oneself, is getting to put our eyes in us to see Him.” Fr. Alessandro was born in 1975 in Romano di Lombardia (Bergamo) and was ordained priest in 2006. He decided to leave the parish to settle near a hermitage in Lunigiana. The Word of God is his travelling companion, his “law” and he shares it with love. From September 2019 he lives in Crocetta, a small hamlet of Mulazzo, a town in Tuscany in the province of Massa and Carrara. He moved into a house surrounded by a chestnut wood, where he dedicated himself to prayer, silence and listening to people on the Via Francigena, not far from a sanctuary, once a Benedictine priory dedicated to Mary. He help the small parishes in the area left without a pastor. He writes books that tell his encounter with the Word. He published La Parola libera. Lacrime e baci (Paoline, 2021) and Se Carlo Acutis avesse trent’anni in 2021 for Edizioni San Paolo. In his blog www.alessandrohedo.com, you can find his homilies and reflections. The magazine Famiglia Cristiana also published an article about him. You can read it here.
