ONE WORLD RELIGION WATCH: “Through dialogue, Families Can Help a Europe in Crisis”

ONE WORLD RELIGION WATCH: “Through dialogue, Families Can Help a Europe in Crisis”
More "dialogue", "unity in difference" and "culture of encounter" nonsense from the heretics of Rome
The "Pope" urged the European Federation of Catholic Family Associations (Fafce) to a constructive dialogue with the various actors on the social scene” and to be “ferment that teaches others to work together, respecting legitimate differences and approaches” to help tackle, through a “culture of the encounter” capable of enhancing “unity in difference,” the four crises that “are affecting Europe at the present time: demographic, migration, employment and education.”

FAFCE is the only European family organization that explicitly refers to the social teaching of the Catholic Church. FAFCE President Antoine Renard explained how the federation, in Rome on the occasion of its 20th Anniversary, has its General secretariat in Brussels at the Comece (the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community), and whose goal is to ensure a political representation for family interests from a Catholic perspective with both the EU institutions and the Council of Europe.

Families, said Jorge Mario Bergoglio, “are not museum pieces, but through them, the gift is made concrete in mutual commitment and generous openness to children, but also in service to society. Families are thus a kind of leaven that helps to make the world more humane and more fraternal, where no one feels rejected or abandoned.” The Pope, who recalled that in his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia he “emphasized how, on the basis of the family, we can make the gift concrete through the beauty and the joy of mutual love” he then urged the Federation to remind “everyone that there is no better ally for the integral progress of society than to favor the presence of families in the social fabric.” In fact, he said, “the family is the foundation of society and it remains the most suitable structure for ensuring for people the integral good necessary for their continuing development” and “marriages, paternity, maternity, filiation and brotherhood make it possible for every person to be introduced into the human family.”

For the Argentine Pontiff, “Today more than ever, we see the need for a culture of encounter that can enhance unity in diversity, reciprocity and solidarity between generations. This “family capital” is called to impregnate the economic, social and political relationships of the European continent.

Francis, who recalled his meetings with European leaders, then focused on “crises of different types” that are currently springing up in Europe, included in the institution of the family. But crises are incentives to work harder and better with confidence and hope.” The Pope recalled Fafce’s initiatives to promote concrete policies favoring the family in the areas of the economy and employment with the goal of procuring a dignified and fitting employment for all, especially the young,” stressing that “concern for showing respect and for the dignity of each person should always prevail” In this sense - he pointed out - the culture of encounter always includes an attitude of dialogue in which listening is always necessary. May your dialogue be always based on actions, testimonies, experiences and lifestyles that speak more loudly than your speeches and programmes.”

More specifically, Bergoglio said, “Four crises in particular affect Europe at the present time: demographics – the “demographic winter” -, migration, employment and education. These crises might find positive outcomes precisely in the culture of encounter, if different social, economic and political actors were to join in shaping policies supportive of families. In these four areas, you are already working to propose answers tailored to families, seeing in the latter a resource and an ally for the person and his or her milieu. In this sense, your task very often will be to invite to a constructive dialogue with the various actors on the social scene, without concealing your Christian identity. Indeed, that identity will enable you always to look beyond appearances and the present moment.”

To carry out this demanding work, the family “cannot remain isolated like a monad,” the Pope insisted, “Families need to go out from themselves; they need to dialogue and to encounter others, in order to build a unity that is not uniformity and that can generate progress and advance the common good.” Following the “wisdom” handed down by the ancestors, “your service to the sacredness of life,” the Pope explained, “ takes concrete form in the covenant between generations and in service to all, especially those most in need, the disabled and orphans. It takes concrete form in solidarity with migrants, in the patient art of education that views each young person as a subject worthy of all the family’s love, in defending the right to life of the unborn who have no voice, and in ensuring dignified living conditions for the elderly.”

Francis’ final recommendation, as “ The work before you is great and complex “ and “Only by strengthening your association and inviting other families to join with you, will the task become less arduous, since union makes for strength. Frequently it will fall to you to be the ferment that teaches others to work together, respecting legitimate differences and approaches.”
