THE ACTUALITY OF BLESSED GIUSEPPE TONIOLO AND HIS VISION OF AN ECONOMY FOR MAN

12 November 2018 (Extraordinary General Assembly of the CEI) Card. Bassetti in the opening text makes a reference to Blessed Giuseppe Toniolo
“Service to the common good. In the complexity of this season, individual limits can find compensation only in the community dimension, educating us to think and act together. The best policy is that which operates in unity of mind and heart, without falling into bias. In this regard, one hundred years after his death, the example of Blessed Giuseppe Toniolo still has many things to tell us: in a situation in which Catholics were politically irrelevant and in any case impeded, he knew how to bring them together around a commitment to work, justice and social peace; with his cultural service he became a promoter of legislation and social works in favor of the most disadvantaged classes. Thus, his vision of an economy for man, permeated by ethics and governed by the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, also remains an extremely current lesson. "
