Roma. From the 14-17th December 2010 there took place in Rome the 36th “Convegno” or series of study days, organised by “Claretianum”, the Theological Institute of Consecrated Life. The venue for the event was the Great Hall (Aula Magna) of the Urbaniana University, where more than 200 participants gathered.
The theme chosen this year was “The Culture of Media Communication and the Consecrated Life”.
On the list of lecturers were the following: Mons Claudio Maria Celli, President of the Pontifical Council of social communication at the Holy See, with an interesting commentary on the Pope’s message for the Study day on Social Communications; Filomeno Lopes, journalist with Vatican Radio and Professor at the Urbaniana University; Robert Chabib, journalist with the Zenit Agency; Fernando Prado CMF, Director of Claretian Publications in Madrid; Vincenzo Cómodo, Professor at the Claretianum in Rome; Tonino Cantelmi, Professor at the Sapienza University in Rome, and Caterina Cangia, Professor at the Auxilium.
Like every year, the conference has been presented as a forum for thought and dialogue on issues that challenge the mission of consecrated life in its integration into the socio-cultural environment.
