Archdiocese of Seville organizes Catholics and Public Life Day

.- In order to defend and promote the presence of Christians in society, the Archdiocese of Seville, Spain will host the third Catholics and Public Life Day, which will be held February 12 and 13 on the Bormujos University campus in Seville.  The day's theme will be “Christian Testimony in a Secular Society.”

During a press conference announcing the event, the vicar general of the archdiocese, Father Fernando Ortiz, remarked that this year, activities will center on the economic crisis, the family and the media.

Speaking on the importance of the event, Fr. Ortiz said, “Christians are exercising their liberty in demanding a place in public life.”  He recalled that Pope Benedict XVI, in the encyclical “Caritas in Veritate,” defended the presence of Catholics in the public square, “against the predominant tendency that argues for separating the essence of Catholics from their role in society.”

Jose Maria Monzon, secretary of the Catholic Association of Advertisers, said the event brings to light “the true concerns of citizens.”  He underscored that during the day, “the doors of the campus will be opened so the event will become a forum for all who have something to contribute.”
