Reflections from the Courtyard
Cultures and Faith Vol. XXV N.3 Theme: Courtyard Reflections
Vol. XXV 2017 N.3 of the Dicastery's journal is now out with a focus on "Reflections from the Courtyard."
The Courtyard of the Gentiles has a Rome-based think-tank stimulating and deepening its reflections on a number of issues, from music to time, beauty to economy, life and death issues, equality and work. These themes are at the center of a process of discernment and dialogues with varying partners around the world.
Recently, the think-tank – whose contribution composes this edition of the Review – has noticed a societal shift. No longer of concern is it individualism with its excesses, but the array of diversities that fragment ethnic, religious and ideological sectors of society creating hostility and intolerance.
What is needed is an attentiveness to “the other” and a dialogue of togetherness able to engage with all of humanity in a new and widespread sense of responsibility – for the environment and for human resources, for the challenges new technology brings, for the dignity of the human family.
Our history and freedom depend on this.
