The EOC after 18 years
By Alberto Ferrucci
From Economia di Comunione - una cultura nuova" n.29 - September 2009
On May 29, 2009, the EOC project reached adulthood, and with the encyclical “Caritas in veritate”, it seems like a sign that in this same year the universal Church recognized it as its own. Today, Chiara, who announced the project 18 years ago and gave it to us, admires it from heaven “already” as it should be, as one of the pearls of her charism. Now it´s our turn to bring it ahead, day by day, towards what it should be, conscious that this isn’t only for us. Since the very beginning, the EOC was thought of for all of humanity, who, now in crisis, awaits it more and more each day.
To spread the project, it´s necessary to know how to elaborate, transmit and enhance its messages with the concrete experiences of those who already apply it. Therefore, there is need of concrete experiences, theoretical and media-savvy elaboration, and the availability of the media. With this motive, we commit ourselves to always keeping the website, www.edc-online.org updated and translating the content in real time, currently done in five languages.
