Hope: Foundation of a Civilization of Love
Since 1999, the biennial Vincentian Chair of Social Justice
conferences have convened academics, practitioners, church leaders
and policy makers to explore perspectives on poverty and move
beyond problem analysis to personal and systemic solutions. In this
40th anniversary year of Gaudium et Spes, we celebrate Hope—the
theological virtue that is the foundation of communities of love
and justice, indeed civilizations as well.
“The future of humanity lies in the hands of those who are
strong enough to provide coming generations with reasons for living
