Cassià Maria Just, abbot emeritus of the Abbey of Montserrat, dies

05/03/2008

Cassià Maria Just, abbot emeritus of the Abbey of Montserrat, dies Josep Maria Soler , the present president of the Pau Casals Foundation and father abbot of the monastery of Montserrat, and all the members of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees deeply regret the loss of Cassià Maria Just, who had been the abbot of Montserrat between 1966 and 1989 and the president of the Pau Casals Foundation between 1972 and 1989.

Cassià Just (Barcelona, 1926) joined the Escolania or choir school of Montserrat in 1939 and was ordained in 1950 after becoming a novice in 1942. In 1964 he was appointed prior of the monastery and in 1966 he was elected abbot in substitution of the exiled Aureli Maria Escarré , following the latter’s line in the defense of human rights and the Catalan spirit while maintaining the national and international projection of Montserrat.
