Edition Focuses on Year of Faith and the New Evangelization

HUMANITAS’ English edition was recently lauded by Cardinal Sean O'Malley, archbishop of Boston who while addressing English speaking readers, recommended the publication "for those who have responsibility for college campus ministry and adult faith formation at dioceses throughout the United States.” The open letter from the Archbishop of Boston also regarded the publication as “a very helpful resource for Catholic universities and seminaries in their discussion of the manner through which faith and reason are brought together in the contemporary era.”

The review’s director, Jaime Antúnez, explained the origin of publication. "We did not think [of publishing] an English edition until the Holy See itself, specifically through the Congregation for Catholic Education, indicated to us the great convenience of undertaking this effort.  The reason given was that the pages of HUMANITAS review are usually written by the most important Catholic intellectuals in the world, making this publication a happy echo of the most recent teachings of the Church’s magisterium, especially the ones emanated from the Holy Father," Antúnez said.

"Moreover, this impulse came from a very real concern already raised by Blessed Pope John Paul II in the Exhortation ‘Ecclesia in America’, as it was a novelty to invite all the American Catholics, the ones from the north, center and south, to look at ourselves as one people walking arm in arm on this side of the Atlantic."
