Pope Francis: " -.... Each time we say “Our Father”, we state that the word Father cannot stand on its own, apart from Our. United in Jesus’ prayer, we are also united to his experience of love and intercession, which leads us to say: “My Father and your Father, my God and your God” (cf. Jn 20:17). We are invited to make my become our, and our to become a prayer. Help us, Father, to take our brother or sister’s lives seriously, to make their history our history. Help us, Father, not to judge our brother or sister for their actions and their limitations, but to welcome them before all else as your son or daughter. Help us to overcome the temptation to act like the elder brother, who was so concerned with himself that he forgot the gift of the other person (cf. Lk 15:25-32).
To you, Father, who art in heaven, a heaven that embraces all and in which you make the sun rise on the good and the evil, on the just and the unjust (cf. Mt 5:45), we implore the peace and harmony that here on earth we have failed to preserve. We ask this through the intercession of all those brothers and sisters in faith who dwell with you in heaven after having believed, loved and suffered greatly, even in our own days, simply for the fact that they were Christians.
Together with them, we wish to hallow your name, placing it at the heart of all we do. May your name, Lord, and not ours, be the one that moves and awakens in us the exercise of charity. How many times, in prayer, do we limit ourselves to asking for gifts and listing requests, forgetting that the first thing we should do is praise your name, adore you, and then go on to acknowledge, in the brother or sister whom you have placed at our side, a living image of you. In the midst of all those passing things in which we are so caught up, help us, Father, to seek what truly lasts: your presence and that of our brother or sister.
We wait in expectation for your kingdom to come. We ask for it and we long for it, because we see that the workings of this world do not favour it, organized as they are around money, personal interests and power. Sunken as we are in an increasingly frenetic consumerism that entices us with glittering but fleeting realities, we ask you to help us, Father, to believe in what we pray for: to give up the comfortable security of power, the deceptive allure of worldliness, the vain presumption of our own self-sufficiency, the hypocrisy of cultivating appearances. In this way, we will not lose sight of that Kingdom to which you summon us.
Thy will be done, not our will. “God’s will is that all be saved” (SAINT JOHN CASSIAN, Spiritual Conferences, IX, 20). We need to broaden our horizons, Father, lest we place our own limits on your merciful, salvific will that wishes to embrace everyone. Help us, Father, by sending to us, as at Pentecost, the Holy Spirit, source of courage and joy, to impel us to preach the good news of the Gospel beyond the confines of the communities to which we belong, our languages, our cultures and our nations.
Each day we need him, our daily bread. He is the bread of life (cf. Jn 6:35.48) that makes us realize that we are beloved sons and daughters, and makes us feel no longer isolated and orphaned. He is the bread of service, broken to serve us, and asking us in turn to serve one another (cf. Jn 13:14). Father, as you give us our daily bread, strengthen us to reach out and serve our brothers and sisters. And as we ask you for our daily bread, we ask also for the bread of memory, the grace to nurture the shared roots of our Christian identity, so indispensable in an age when humanity, and the young in particular, tend to feel rootless amid the uncertainties of life, and incapable of building their lives on a solid foundation. The bread that we ask begins with a seed, slowly grows into an ear of grain, is then harvested and is finally brought to our table. May it inspire us to be patient cultivators of communion, tireless in sowing seeds of unity, encouraging goodness, working constantly at the side of our brothers and sisters. Without suspicion or reserve, without pressuring or demanding uniformity, in the fraternal joy of a reconciled diversity.
The bread we ask today is also the bread of which so many people today are lacking, while a few have more than enough. The Our Father is a prayer that leaves us troubled and crying out in protest against the famine of love in our time, against the individualism and indifference that profane your name, Father. Help us to hunger to give freely of ourselves. Remind us, whenever we pray, that life is not about keeping ourselves comfortable but about letting ourselves be broken; not about accumulating but about sharing; not about eating to our heart’s content but about feeding others. Prosperity is only prosperity if it embraces everyone.
Each time we pray, we ask that our trespasses, our debts, be forgiven. This takes courage, for it means that we must forgive the trespasses of others, the debts that others have incurred in our regard. We need to find the strength to forgive our brother or sister from the heart (cf. Mt 18:35), even as you, Father, forgive our trespasses: to leave the past behind us and, together, to embrace the present. Help us, Father, not to yield to fear, not to see openness as a threat, to find the strength to forgive each other and move on, and the courage not to settle for a quiet life but to keep seeking, with transparency and sincerity, the face of our brothers and sisters.
And when the evil that lurks at the doorway of our heart (cf. Gen 4:7) makes us want to close in on ourselves; when we feel more strongly the temptation to turn our back on others, help us again, Father, for the essence of sin is withdrawal from you and from our neighbour. Help us to recognize in every one of our brothers and sisters a source of support on our common journey to you. Inspire in us the courage to say together: Our Father. Amen..... "

Les brimades répétées ou le harcèlement à l’école

Equipes de Enseignates de la R. du Congo - EECO[1]

C’est un problème très complexe et qui ne comporte malheureusement pas de « solution baguette-magique » simple et rapide.
Se pencher sur la victime d’un harcèlement et sur le ou les auteurs ne suffit pas pour agir efficacement sur le problème. L’école est un système beaucoup plus large composé de toute une série de personnes en interaction et ayant chacune ses caractéristiques et sa fonction. L’idéal c’est d’agir simultanément sur le plus possible d’éléments du système.
Chaque membre du personnel-cadre :
- Directeur
- profs, titulaires et autres
- éducateurs, surveillants
- secrétariat
- personnel d’entretien (est parfois très bien placé pour observer ce qui se passe)
- Le service du PMS
- L’association des parents
Chaque élève, dont
- celui ou ceux qui brime(nt) (ce ne sont pas toujours les mêmes)
- celui ou ceux qui est ou sont brimé(s) (souvent les mêmes)
- les autres élèves
Chacune des personnes (personnel et élèves) a un caractère propre, un passé et une vie extrascolaire (système familial) qui influencent aussi indirectement ce qui va se passer à l’école et l’« alchimie » des relations à tous niveaux…
Le système de l’école évolue dans des méta-systèmes plus larges (une société donnée, des institutions plus en amont) et toutes ces personnes citées s’insèrent dans un cadre scolaire spécifique à l’école : règles et habitudes de l’école, structure et pratiques décisionnelles, agencement des bâtiments, horaires, financements, ….

The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID) and the World Council of Churches (WCC) have launched a joint document to encourage Churches and Christian organizations to reflect on the structural roots that have led to the disruption of world peace.

By Robin Gomes

EN - ES - FR - IT 

The document entitled, "Education for Peace in a Multi-Religious World: A Christian Perspective",  was presented by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID) and the World Council of Churches (WCC) during a conference in Geneva on May 21 on "Promoting Peace Together".
The document has been defined by the signatories as "an important milestone in our ongoing commitment to strengthening ecumenical relations through the promotion of interreligious dialogue". 
Among those present at the release of the document were PCID Secretary, Bishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, WCC Secretary-General, Olav Fykse Tveit, Holy See’s Permanent Observer to the United Nations and Specialized Agencies in Geneva, Archbishop Ivan Jurkovič  and the representative of the Permanent Mission of the United Arab Emirates, Aalya Al Shehhi.
The conference devoted ample time to the historical “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together” signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmad Al-Tayyeb in Abu Dhabi on February 4.
Terrorism threatening planet
“Our daily experience confirms that we live in a fractured world and that polarization is increasing,” Bishop Ayuso noted in a brief presentation.  The ecological crisis and political, economic, and social instability, he said, continue to threaten the well-being, if not the very existence of the planet.
“Deadly terrorism, acts of religiously motivated violence, radicalization or self-radicalization via social media, hate speech, as well as extremist preachers, missionaries, and religious institutions that sow the seeds of hatred and violence are social scourges that must be addressed,” he said.
Religions for peacebuilding
For this reason, the Spanish bishop said, the document is "grounded in our shared conviction that education has a vital, indeed essential role to play in resolving conflicts, preventing their recurrence, healing the wounded, restoring justice, and upholding the equal dignity of all.”
Even though the joint PCID-WCC document is written by Christians for mainly Christians, the bishop pointed out that peacebuilding needs to embrace everyone.  He hoped that the document will generate a broad interaction on education for peace involving followers of other religions, as well as social and political actors in our multi-religious world.
The document "Education for Peace in a Multi-Religious World: A Christian Perspective" is divided into three sections.
The first section gives seven reasons why Christians should engage in education for peace.  The second section points to twelves areas and strategies for implementing peacebuilding through education.   The final part offers ten recommendations to Churches, Christian educational institutions and the national and regional confessional ecumenical bodies for prayerful reflection.

Social media: strumenti per costruire e dare voce a chi non ha voce

Convegno promosso dal Dicastero per la Comunicazione della Santa Sede sul tema “Dalle social network communities alla comunità umana. Le nostre esperienze”

2019 De communautés sur les réseaux sociaux à la communauté humaine


2019 From social network communities to the human community

di Marina Tomarro - Città del Vaticano
I video postati sulla Global page di Vatican News su Facebook sono stati visti 15 milioni di volte. Quelli più apprezzati riguardano alcuni momenti salienti dei viaggi di Papa Francesco. Tra questi, la Messa nello Zayed Sports City di Abu Dhabi, la Veglia con i giovani durante la GMG a Panama, la visita in Marocco o l’ultima in Bulgaria, con i bambini che giocavano con le rose dopo aver fatto la loro Prima Comunione dalle mani del Pontefice. Proprio i social media sono stati al centro dell’incontro che si è svolto ieri nella sede del Dicastero per la Comunicazione della Santa Sede, che ha avuto come filo conduttore il tema “Dalle social network communities alla comunità umana. Le nostre esperienze”.
Portare il messaggio evangelico in Rete
“Essere rete nell’era della rete – ha spiegato Paolo Ruffini prefetto del Dicastero per la Comunicazione – non è costruire una burocrazia digitale, ma inculturare il messaggio evangelico nel mondo della multimedialità. La parola del Papa è già presente nelle reti social, ma molti giovani non lo sanno. Questo è un nuovo modo di testimoniare per capire prima e governare poi tutti i cambiamenti che ci attendono” I social media vaticani sono presenti nella rete con 23 lingue su Fb; 6 account in Twitter; un canale YouTube in 14 lingue e con un account multilinguistico su Instagram. Ogni giorno vengono aggiornati con notizie che riguardano non solo il Vaticano ma anche il mondo della Chiesa.
I tweet del Papa: capsule d'amore nel mondo
“La nostra presenza sui social – ha sottolineato Nataša Govekar direttore del Dipartimento Teologico-Pastorale – ha come obiettivo quello di raggiungere le persone là dove si trovano. Per poter portare la parola di Dio ovunque. Tanti fedeli vivono in luoghi lontanissimi da Roma e magari non riusciranno a venire mai in piazza San Pietro ad ascoltare Papa Francesco. Ma i suoi Tweet su @Pontifex sono seguiti da 48 millioni di persone in 9 lingue, pochi caratteri che hanno un grande significato. I social media diventano così un esercizio per trovare l’essenziale. Si comunica con piccole pillole di saggezza o capsule d’amore”.
Parlare social: i linguaggi differenti
E quelli che seguono le pagine social vaticane non sono utenti passivi, ma commentano, pongono domande e curiosità, soprattutto attraverso i post su Facebook. “Esistono linguaggi differenti sui social – ha rilevato Juan Narbona docente presso la Pontificia Università della Santa Croce – le persone su Fb tendono ad essere più aperte, mentre su Twitter spesso la comunicazione diventa essenziale. Instantgram invece è un mondo a parte, è rivolto molto ai giovani e quindi deve essere vivace e allegro. Quando comunichiamo con i social dobbiamo rispettare un galateo speciale che ci dovrebbe imporre una buona educazione e una moderazione nel linguaggio, cosa che invece oggi è diventata molto difficile in rete”.
Una Rete delle Reti
Proprio su Instantgram sono particolarmente seguite le foto "Black and White" cioè una serie di scatti in bianco e nero che ripercorrono le cerimonie in Vaticano nel corso degli anni, partendo dai primi del novecento e “Accadde oggi”, dove sul profilo de L'Osservatore Romano, vengono riproposte le prime pagine che raccontano i grandi eventi del passato. “Per essere incisivi e mirati – ha concluso Davide Dionisi coordinatore dei Social Media Vaticani – non esiste una ricetta ideale se non quella della continua sperimentazione. Ovviamente non deve mai venir meno una buona dose di fantasia e il confronto costante, così come quello avviato oggi con chi si occupa del settore, per dare vita ad una rete delle reti”.
Al Convegno ha partecipato il segretario generale, Giovanni Perrone, in rappresentanza dell'UMEC-WUCT. Nel suo breve intervento ha illustrato le principali caratteristiche del blog e i positivi risultati conseguiti. 
Periodicamente  si incontreranno i rappresentanti delle varie istituzioni presenti (congregazioni, università, associazioni, movimenti) per proseguire un comune cammino che aiuti tutti a migliorare le varie forme di comunicazione e permetta a tuti di interagire proficuamente.
