Why meeting our Bishop Antonio Staglianò?
The Headmaster Mr Concetto Veneziano and the coordinator Mrs Maria Rizza of the Project Erasmusplus KA2 " D.I.L.O.G." thank Our Eminence the Bishop Antonio Staglianò for accepting the invitation to discuss with us about his experience for the policies concerning iIMMIGRANTS as he is the responsible and the spokesman on behalf of the whole Sicilian Catholic Dioceses .
The Bishop hoping that everyone, among the audience is genuinely motivated and interested in the topic of the meeting, underlies the importance of getting the critical judgment skills in an era, such as ours, in which the migration phenomenon is known through news, stories and media, which give us a representation of the reality, rather than the reality itself. He warns the students against the " false representations" of this phenomenon; he asks the students to rely on their critical thinking, to reflect on what happens around us instead of accepting it passively.
The Bishop admits that Immigration is a " hot" topic nowadays for everyone, but we cannot deny it, becasue it has a strong impact on everyone's life particularly on the young. So he explains that he is going to deal with this matter in a more involving way, that is ,by referring to what he himself has created " Pop Theology". it is a way to deal with religiuos and spiritual matters through pop culture and in particular by quoting pop singers and songs , so much loved by the young. Pop theology, therefore ,is a sort of strategy to enliven young people religious faith , get them back to church and participate actively in christian life.
