The new working class and the Pope’s duty to be an “advocate of the poor” – Vatican News

The new working class and the Pope’s duty to be an “advocate of the poor” Fifty years ago, ‘Octogesima adveniens’ was published. In it, Pope Paul VI spoke about the exodus toward the large urban centers, about the dignity of women and the pluralism of political options. He criticized Marxist and liberal ideologies and defended the “duty-right” of the Church to express itself regarding social issues. By Andrea Tornielli Octogesima adveniens contains prophetic words regarding those people whom the author’s successor, Pope Francis, today calls “the discarded”. It is a realistic analysis regarding the major imbalances and the consequences of the exodus toward the large urban centers. It criticizes Marxist ideology and its atheistic materialism, but also takes to task that liberal ideology that would prevail less than twenty years later, thus definitively opening the way toward turbo-capitalism. The year 1971 was running its course when on 14 May, Pope Paul VI recalled the eightieth anniversary of Pope Leo XIII’s Rerum novarum with an apostolic letter addressed to Cardinal Maurice Roy, the Archbishop of Quebec and President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

WORLD CATHOLIC EDUCATION DAY: MAY 13, 2021

In 2002, the OIEC Congress held in Brasilia decided to establish the World Day of Catholic Education, setting the date forty days after Easter (that is, Ascension Thursday). This year it is nice to highlight this Day in relation to the process of Global Compact on Education initiated by Pope Francis. On May 13 we will celebrate World Catholic Education Day, which coincides with the Feast of Mother Mazzarello. The commemoration, promoted by international institutions such as the OIEC (International Office of Catholic Education), the FIUC (International Federation of Catholic Universities), the OMAEC (World Organization of Alumni of Catholic Education) and others, intends to draw attention to the contribution that Catholic education offers to global development and the promotion of a culture of peace and fraternity. To know more accurately the diffusion and service of Catholic educational institutions in the world, Quentin Wooden, an economist of the World Bank, edited a publication entitled “Celebrating Educators and Working Together for the Global Compact on Education”. The text collects numerous data and some testimonies of students, educators and educators. With joy I inform you that the first part of the text contains the testimonies of seven Daughters of Mary Help of Christians. I am happy...
