Franciscan Spirituality addresses today’s ethical challenge by contributing to an “integral ecology,” (cf. Laudato Sì), that is a new understanding of economics, peace-making, intercultural communication and inter-religious dialogue. The Franciscan spiritual perspective helps to build a new relational paradigm for the Church. The course will underline that the new forms of media are gifts of God that can strengthen bonds of fraternal communication and build a more responsible lifestyle. However, they also present ethical challenges that must be addressed.
