Joining economy with communion

By Vera Araujo, sociologist

from Living City, November 2011

I have always thought that the Economy of Communion requires a new anthropological vision, with consequent concrete ramifications. In other words, we can ask ourselves, “What type of person is capable of wedding economy and communion together?”

Maybe, and even without saying maybe, this is an era that intensely awaits the emergence of a new type of man and woman, capable and able to embrace all the dimensions of life: from the spiritual to the material, the economic to the political, the social to the civil spheres, the relational to the communional dimension.

These are suitable times for homo agapicus to inhabit our planet: a person who knows how to love and finds in love the seed, the light, the strength and the truth of everything and of each thing — who will be able to bring all works and diversities into communion.
