17 January 2012. We join CCR in Italy in prayer for the passing away of Fr. Matteo La Grua. He was a pioneer of CCR and spiritual father of many Charismatics in Italy. Involved in the ministries of healing and deliverance —he was also an exorcist, appointed by the bishop of Palermo—, Fr. Matteo was a renowned speaker, writer of several books and a gifted servant of the Lord.
