Caritas Internationalis prayer

Mon, October 20th at: 2:13 pm in: , ,

Pilgrims from every continent flocked to Rome in 1950, declared a Holy Year by Pope Pius XII. This was before the Caritas confederation was formed and the Vatican had long wished to see closer international cooperation among as many Catholic charities as possible.

In 1951, a meeting of the leading Caritas associations was initiated by Mgr. Giovanni Battista Montini, Substitute Secretary of State. At the start of the convention, Montini proposed the creation of an “international organism” for managing cooperation between individual Caritas groups. His address would form the basis of a new set of statutes for a new organisation that would go on to become “Caritas Internationalis”.

Mgr. Montini would go on to become Pope Paul VI: “when we fight poverty and oppose the unfair conditions of the present, we are not just promoting human well being; we are also furthering man’s spiritual and moral development, and hence we are benefiting the whole human race. For peace is not simply the absence of warfare, based on a precarious balance of power; it is fashioned by efforts directed day after day toward the establishment of the ordered universe willed by God, with a more perfect form of justice among men.”
