Italian premier praises Catholic sense of community

CWN - September 17, 2012

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti has suggested that the country's Catholics should recover a sense of active membership in communities.

Speaking to a Catholic audience in Verona on September 14, Monti said that Catholic social doctrine fosters "a deep sense of belonging to public communities, from the municipal to the state, to the European and on to the entire human collective." That sense of overlapping communities, and the encouragement to become active members, is "a very constructive contribution which Catholic culture can offer today," he said.
