The COVID-19 crisis offers a stark reminder of our vulnerabilities as individuals and communities and the need for greater solidarity. In his recent encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis calls for a renewed sense of global fraternity:
“a worldwide tragedy like the Covid-19 pandemic momentarily revived the sense that we are a global community, all in the same boat, where one person’s problems are the problems of all. Once more we realized that no one is saved alone; we can only be saved together” (Fratelli Tutti, 32)
This fundamental message that we are all in the same boat, has been at the heart of the mission of Pax Romana since 1921. In order expand our mission in this particular moment, we need you, and your financial support.
Over the past six months, Pax Romana has responded to this new reality with the development of a new booklet on the spirituality of action and a series of intercontinental dialogues, online liturgies, webinars, training programs and the last issue of Convergence. But it is necessary to do more, and we need your support.
As a global Catholic community, Pax Romana helps his members to better witness the Gospel as lay leaders by offering:
– an experience of what transcends us, in the community, the church, and in the United Nations
– an experience of the richness of the relationship with others from different cultural, national, and linguistic groups.
Pax Romana will not change the world, but it can sow the seeds of that change. Please join us in supporting the work of ICMICA-Pax Romana with a financial contribution of your choice (we suggest 30, 50, or 100 Euros). You can do it online with a credit card, bank transfer or paypal.
We are at a critical turning point. The future requires the development of a renewed spirit of fraternity and lay action that goes beyond the only technical and legal changes. If you believe in the importance of the spiritual dimension of people and institutions to build the future, and if you believe that Pax Romana can contribute to it, we invite you to financially support us.
