In the crisis of modernity, a new demand for spirituality is emerging. For too long spirituality has been scrupulously committed to the miniature of inner perfection, forgetting history and its tragedies, its utopias and regenerative groans(cf.Rm 8,22).

Today, the historical conjuncture and cultural transformation require it to enter a season of new investigations, both exploratory and creative at the same time. In this situation we have tried to express the proposal of a new spirituality that helps to discern and clarify new commitments to justice, solidarity, harmony with creation and peace. On this path we intend to highlight some possibilities and tasks of spirituality in modern age.

First of all, to rediscover work as the primary "place of Christian spirituality" and to highlight Christ, the man of work: the source of a renewed spirituality to be lived within the everyday life.

Work is not just an essential means of living. Through work, man expresses his personality, contributes to the God's creative plan and redeemed Christ. Work is therefore an act that bears witness and pays tribute to God and a service to mankind.

In the light of this concept, problems related to work that are particularly felt today, such as the “right to work” and the “rights of work”, must be resolved.

Perhaps what is most lacking today in the speech about work is an emphasis on its spiritual dimensions.

With this new international event, the Carità Politica association intends to make it the subject of a study reflection.

We have invited people to witness and reflect together (and we hope that this reflection will only be the beginning of a long journey). Heads of departments of the Roman Curia and ambassadors accredited to the Holy See, as well as personalities from various working sectors. In the words of Blessed John Paul II we say: "We need, therefore, that this Christian spirituality of work becomes the common heritage of all.

It is necessary that, especially in modern times, the spirituality of work demonstrates that maturity which the tensions and anxieties of minds and hearts demand". (Laborem exercens, 25).
