Cardinal Parolin: Politics Must Regain Role of Social Mediation in Building Common Good

Talk to Vatican Diplomatic Organization

“Politics must regain its role of social mediation in building the common good and a willingness to collaborate in the search for shared solutions, both internationally and in relations between the States within civil society against the prevalence of new forms of hatred and intolerance. A context that today endangers the dialogue on human rights that we have the duty to protect and implement.”

These are the words of the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, at the meeting of the delegation of Rondine, the diplomatic corps to the Holy See, organized in collaboration with the Ambassador George Poulides, Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, held November 28, 2018, in the Old Synod Hall in the Vatican.

“The Holy See’s commitment is to promote the widest possible comparison with all the individuals and institutions who work to protect human rights and promote the common good and social development – continues the Secretary of State – for so today I express the support to Rondine and its twenty-year commitment to building a peaceful society starting with the training of young people so that they can become the new ruling class of urgently needed, able to communicate and find solutions to the increasing conflict most widespread and diverse, focusing on the common good and respect for all rights, starting with the weakest. “

Cardinal Parolin joined the support towards the three-year global campaign Leaders for Peace, presented by the organization Swallow, which hopes to train young leaders who will work for peace.
