Vision and Mission

The Venice Faith and Politics Workshop.

Vision

Inspired by the story of Europe and guided by the wisdom of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola, this week long session is an invitation to explore Christian engagement in public life.

Mission

This session enables young adults from every part of Europe to explore how faith and politics are related. This will empower them to engage, as Europeans, in public service for the common good in a world of contradictions.

 

Promoting the common good

Public service: justice depends on people who generously respond to a personal call to work with and for others as stewards of creation,.

Discernment: service calls for a shared attention to other people’s lives and to the complexity of human motivation.

Hope:  in a world damaged by sin, reconciliation and forgiveness are a source of power.
