from EoF editorial staff
We thank Pope Francis for the words of gratitude, trust and encouragement he has given to Bishop Monsignor Domenico Sorrentino, Chairman of the Organizing Committee, and to the Committee Members, Luigino Bruni and Francesca Di Maolo, entrusting them with the task of continuing to guard The Economy of Francesco and defining the new organizational structure of coordination, which the world’s young economists and entrepreneurs need.
This letter represents a first and fundamental result (the result of a long process of listening and discernment carried out in the year that has just ended) that we are very happy about, confident that Pope Francis’ words will support the new phase of EoF, which, we are sure, will be even more beautiful and generative than the already luminous and prophetic one that EoF has experienced so far.
As and more than ever, we count on the commitment, joy, enthusiasm, creativity, ideas, and passion of each of the young people of EoF, to whom we recall the words that Pope Francis himself addressed to them last October 6: “May you not lack patience and resourcefulness to let yourselves be known and to establish gradually more stable and fruitful connections. […] Give voice and shape to a people, because the concreteness of the economy and the solutions you are studying and experimenting with involve the lives of all. There is more room for you than appears today. Therefore, I ask you to remain actively united, building on operational issues real bridges between continents that will take humanity out of the colonial and inequality era for good. Give faces, content and projects to a universal fraternity.”
Best wishes dear friends, we count on you. Always.
