Foto Longhini da AVO Ladispoli4 Novembre 2018

Il 4 novembre 2016 chiudeva gli occhi su questa terra ma li apriva al cielo Erminio Longhini, presidente AFCV, fondatore dell’AVO, grande uomo, valente medico e “buon samaritano” dei giorni nostri. 

«Ringrazio Dio perché nella mia vita ho avuto molto di più di quanto immaginavo. Ringrazio la Madonna, e tutte le sere concludo le mie preghiere dicendo: sii Tu a venirmi a prendere e sarà piena letizia. Ti sentirò e ti vedrò».

Certi che sia avvenuto proprio come lui desiderava, a ricompensa di una vita tutta intrisa di Vangelo, ricordiamo il nostro amato fondatore prof. Erminio Longhini, a due anni dalla sua scomparsa. 

 

 

Erminio Longhini nasce a Milano il 19 luglio 1928. Dal matrimonio con Nuccia Longhini nascono Michela, Matteo e Stefano. Già dagli anni dell’università, Nuccia ed Erminio studenti di medicina, intendono mettere al centro della loro professione la persona.
«Fin da bambino – racconta lui stesso – ho sentito una forte attrazione verso la Vergine Maria». Forse è per questa sua filiale devozione ad “una così bella Madre”, che pur sommerso dagli obblighi della professione, si presta ad accompagnare i viaggi dei malati a Lourdes. Serio, scrupoloso, esigente, trascorre anni di duro sacrificio impegnato dall’alba a notte fonda, sia con i malati come primario ospedaliero, sia dedicandosi alla ricerca. Ma anche la sua anima è in ricerca. Con Nuccia avverte il bisogno di una spiritualità che accompagni la vita della loro famiglia e in quella dei Focolari trovano la risposta: Dio-Amore, cui Erminio sente di donare tutto se stesso, mettendosi al Suo servizio nei fratelli che incontra. Diventa un focolarino sposato.
Grazie a generosi contributi, mette in piedi un reparto di medicina interna con apparecchiature all’avanguardia ed accoglie giovani laureati italiani e di Paesi in via di sviluppo perché si possano formare. Riesce a motivare colleghi ed infermieri e la divisione medica da lui diretta diviene una delle migliori, sia come rapporto umano che tecnico, con centinaia di ricerche pubblicate. Erminio capisce sempre più che non basta curare la malattia, ma la persona.

In collaborazione con l’Università Cattolica, realizza una ricerca in 40 ospedali da cui emerge che il maggior disagio dei malati è il dover dipendere dagli altri. Ed ecco il balenare di un’idea, subito comunicata alla moglie e ad alcuni collaboratori: «Perché non donare un po’ del nostro tempo per instaurare un rapporto umano, uno scambio d’amore con i nostri malati?». Non senza ostacoli e mille complicazioni, Erminio riesce a portare i primi 30 volontari in corsia disposti ad occuparsi dei malati oltre le cure. «Che cosa ho cercato di trasmettere loro? – spiega –. Ciò che avevo imparato da Chiara Lubich: la reciprocità».
Da questo primo gruppo, nel 1976 nasce l’AVO (Associazione Volontari Ospedalieri), un’iniziativa incoraggiata, oltre che da Chiara, dai cardinali di Milano, Colombo e Martini e dallo stesso san Giovanni Paolo II che, durante un’udienza a 7.000 volontari dell’Associazione, dice ad Erminio: «Sono contento, dica ai suoi amici di continuare così».
Dopo la dolorosa morte della moglie, Erminio affina ancor più la sua mitezza e l’abbandono in Dio.Costretto a continui ricoveri e sempre più frequenti trasfusioni, confida: «Mi sento come una foglia d’autunno in una giornata di vento. Sembrerebbe più desiderabile il venire della sera della vita. Poi capisco che si nasconde una tentazione e al mattino percepisco che mi viene donato un altro giorno e che la vita è vivere il momento presente, contando sulla misericordia di Dio per il passato e sulla speranza per l’avvenire».
Nel frattempo, l’AVO si diffonde in tutta Italia e conta oggi 25.000 volontari in 250 ospedali. Per questo suo impegno, nel 2004 Erminio è insignito della Medaglia d’Oro al Merito della Sanità dal Presidente dell’Italia. Fino alla fine Erminio continua a formare spiritualmente i volontari con scritti e videomessaggi.
Negli ultimi mesi, il suo quadro clinico non è certo rassicurante, ma lui è sereno: «Ringrazio Dio perché nella mia vita ho avuto molto di più di quanto immaginavo. Ringrazio la Madonna, e tutte le sere concludo le mie preghiere dicendo: sii Tu a venirmi a prendere e sarà piena letizia. Ti sentirò e ti vedrò».

Il 4 novembre 2016 si spegne serenamente. Tutti quelli che l’hanno conosciuto e amato sono certi che sia avvenuto proprio come lui desidera, a ricompensa di una vita tutta intrisa di Vangelo.

Un ricordo di Nuccia Orrù Longhini

Cagliari, 2 Gennaio 2013

Caro Erminio,
e così la nostra dolce, tenera, amata Nuccia ci ha lasciato.
Mi tornano in mente i ricordi di un tempo, ormai lontano, quando iniziammo a porre le fondamenta dell’AVO Cagliari.
Ci trovammo ad affrontare molte difficoltà e qualcuno del gruppetto un giorno disse: “Rivolgiamoci al Professor Longhini” e così si fece.
Allora si chiamava direttamente a casa tua.
Il più delle volte ci rispondeva una voce femminile che ci sorrideva che ci dava suggerimenti, ci indicava soluzioni ma soprattutto infondeva piano piano in noi, pieni di incertezze e di paure, il coraggio e la determinazione per continuare, per non arrenderci mai.
Era la moglie del professor Longhini, era Nuccia.
Posso dire, oggi, che senza quella voce, senza Nuccia, l’AVO Cagliari non sarebbe mai nata e, invece, a ventisette anni di distanza è una grande realtà.
Conobbi Nuccia, di persona, alcuni anni dopo e da allora tutti gli incontri con lei furono per me memorabili.
Appena mi individuava da lontano cominciava a sorridermi, affrettava il passo che, con l’andar del tempo, doveva farsi sempre più incerto, sollevava le braccia come invitasse ad un abbraccio, mi tendeva la mano e, allungandosi verso di me, quasi in punta di piedi, lei così piccola, mi sfiorava le guance con le sue e nella mia anima scendeva una dolce serenità.
“Francesco, Francesco, come vanno le cose a Cagliari?”
E in quel momento mi faceva sentire che per lei ero la persona più importante del mondo.
Era il suo stile con tutti, uno stile che solo le persone grandi posseggono.
Caro Erminio, se nella grande famiglia dell’AVO tu sei il padre, non c’è dubbio che Nuccia era la madre.
Nella cultura sarda, e nelle sue vene scorreva sangue sardo, la donna, la madre è l’asse portante, la regina della famiglia, dispensatrice di saggezza, colei che consiglia, colei che aiuta, colei che dà forza, colei che si prende cura, colei che consola, colei che sa quando si può parlare e colei che sa quando si deve tacere.
Io e te sappiamo che ognuno di noi può essere, per gli altri, strumento della Provvidenza, anche inconsapevolmente, anche non volendo.
Nuccia lo era in modo assoluto. In lei agiva la Grazia, in lei regnava lo Spirito di Verità.
Noi che abbiamo avuto il privilegio della Fede, sappiamo che con la morte “vita mutatur non tollitur”, la vita non ci è tolta ma è solo trasformata.
E allora, mio amato fratello, aspettiamo con fiducia il momento in cui il Padre deciderà che anche la nostra vita sia trasformata, per ritrovarci insieme là dove c’è solo letizia.

Un abbraccio,
tuo Francesco

Arrivederci Erminio

Venerdì 4 novembre 2016 il nostro Presidente Emerito e fondatore, prof. Erminio Longhini ci ha lasciato.

Visto  l’aggravarsi delle sue condizioni di salute nell’ultima settimana, la notizia era attesa e temuta da tutti noi soci e amici dell’AFCV e dell’ AVO. Siamo profondamente addolorati per la sua scomparsa, ora ci sentiamo un pò più soli ma immensamente grati per averlo conosciuto e frequentato, e fortemente motivati a tramandare alla società, ai giovani e ai futuri volontari il patrimonio inestimabile della sua cultura, umanità, dell’impegno costante, fino all’ultimo battito del suo cuore generoso, di operare per la costruzione del Bene Comune e per l’armonia e la concordia tra tutti.

Certi che ora è felice, insieme alla sua amata Nuccia, in viaggio verso l’incontro col Padre e l’amata Madre celeste, ci stringiamo con affetto ai suoi familiari.
Buon viaggio Erminio!! Grazie per tutto quello che ci hai donato!
