THE NEW WEBSITE OF THE FOUNDATION

The works are in progress but we want to share this project at the point where we are, as a sign of hope.

A year ago, from 5th  to 9th  February, we celebrated in Rome the International Symposium on the Pedagogy of Holiness, the Foundation Catholic Action School of Holiness Pius XI in collaboration with the International Forum Catholic Action.

Immediately after that event, our lives were overwhelmed by the pandemic that is still present in our countries and that we try to face with courage and hope, aware that we are all in the same boat, under the direction of Pope Francis.

In recent months we have tried to keep in contact with each other, we have felt close to “our witnesses”, saints, blessed, venerable, servants of God, significant figures who always accompany us.

As Secretariat of the Foundation we have tried to work, concretizing a commitment undertaken together during the Symposium: to create a new website of the Foundation with special attention to new communication tools. It will be usable on mobile phones and with international recipients and therefore in three languages Italian, Spanish, English. The new site is created with the WordPress platform, already set up to become also an app in the future.

The works are in progress but we want to share this project at the point where we are, a year after our meeting, as a sign of hope and also to ask for your help.

NEW SITE PRESENTATION FORM

Each witness is introduced with a summary card in which it is possible to have immediately the fundamental information on the person and the process of his cause. In particular, we  wanted also to highlight the witness’s link with Catholic Action. From the summary card you have access to analytical information such as the biography, the initiatives, the information material, the quotes and texts of the witness, the publications and the media.

An alphabetical search is active and above all an analytical research on witnesses: by type, country (for Italian witnesses there is also the possibility to look for them by region), by age (young people, adults, children), state of life, profession, relationship with Catholic Action.

In the general part of the site, we have instead inserted information on the Foundation, its activities, publications and a menu “About holiness”  to make the users of the site aware of information relating to the beatification and canonization processes.

Those who visit the site will find the liturgical memorial of the witness of the day on the homepage at the top left, on the days in which a holy or blessed CA witness is remembered.

The witnesses of Catholic Action whose data we have collected so far are more than 400 and we are convinced that, thanks to the possibility of presenting them in multiple languages, other figures will soon be added.

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 263

«We say that things are harder today;
they are simply different. But let us learn
from the saints who have gone before us
who have confronted the difficulties
of their own day».
