30/09/2022 - In the cycle "Stories of holiness" we continue to highlight figures whose work we can place in what we know as the "Economy of Francis", that is, who lived, acted and worked for a more humane and ethics.
In this context, today we know the life of Blessed Giuseppe Toniolo (1845-1918), layman, economist and sociologist, founder of the "Social Week of Italian Catholics" and collaborator of the Holy See in the theoretical and practical formulation of the social doctrine.
For this program we have the presence of Monsignor Domenico Sorrentino, bishop of Assisi and president of the organizing committee of the meeting "Economy of Francis". He was postulator of the cause of the Servant of God and currently chairs the commission for the canonization of the Blessed.
Marco Zabotti, layman, founder of the “Beato Toniolo” Diocesan Institute for the dissemination of the figure of the Blessed, also accompanied us in the same diocese where Joseph is buried and where there is great devotion to him. They have carried out a work of cooperation that puts Toniolo's theological and economic thought into practice.
Dr. Silvia Correale, postulator of the cause of canonization of Toniolo, had an interesting dialogue with the guests. At the beginning of the space you shared with us a portrait of this secular model of holiness.
We invite you to listen to the complete program in the audio accompanying this article.
