"The humanism we want is the apostle of a vision of society centered on the human person and his inalienable rights, on the values of justice and peace, on a correct relationship between individuals, society and the State, in the logic of solidarity and subsidiarity. It is a humanism capable of infusing a soul even with economic progress so that it is oriented towards the promotion of every man and of all man "(Pope John Paul II). This humanism is declined in a number of principles including:

  • The Service of the Common Good
  • Promoting Human Dignity
  • The Formation of All Man and Every Man: The Service of Truth and Justice
