1999 - For a new Christian humanism

dante Dante

How to tell people about God today was the question at the heart of this Plenary Assembly. In the run up to the Jubilee of the Year 2000, religious indifference appeared to be a central issue for the men and women of the time, particularly for the children, the hope of the future, whose geniality lies in their marvel and sense of wonder which can teach much. Focusing on the nature of the human person, the Plenary sought to build on the great tradition of Christian humanism at the heart of John Paul II’s papacy, beginning with his encyclical Redemptor Hominis, and so was a significant contribution to the creation of a new anthropology.
