Charity" held in Rome from 12 to 15 May 1999.
Two hundred persons, including Bishops,
theologians, experts, representatives of national and international
organisations coming from 70 countries and 5 continents participated at
the Congress. Many of the
themes addressed followed the methodology of "seeing, judging,
acting" with the scope of deepening the Christian roots of Charity
at a moment in history, which is identified by the Holy Father as a
privileged model for new evangelisation.
two collections (the English edition of pp. 304 and the Spanish edition
of pp. 316, both costing US $15.) contain also the Homily and Message of
Pope John Paul II on the occasion of the World Day of Charity.
Over 40,000 people representing Catholic volunteer associations
and international charitable organisations attended the World Day of
Charity celebrated in St. Peters Square at the end of the Congress.
