Europe must find
· According to Cardinal Poupard the crisis should be fought with education and culture ·
Europe cannot start with the roof when it begins rebuilding, it must start with its foundation. Furthermore many new institutions are not needed to educate young people on how to be European. “We do not lack a high ideal or the will to make it happen.
'Our increased world needs a supplement of the soul'”, said Cardinal Paul Poupard, President emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Culture, quoting Henri Bergson, the French philosopher. The Cardinal spoke last Friday at an international conference in Paris organized by the Robert Schuman Institute for Europe, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the death of the statesman. The participants discussed the theme “Is Europe off course?” and thus the Cardinal searched to answer this question and propose solutions to the crisis effecting the old continent.
