Evangelii Gaudium Center

The Evangelii Gaudium Center (CEG) is a laboratory of formation, study and research operating in the perspective of the “new chapter of evangelization” to which the Church is called. In tune with Sophia’s formative project and academic method, the mission of the CEG is to promote and support formation, study and research in the fields of ecclesiology, pastoral theology and mission, spiritual theology and the theology of charisms, with particular attention to the rich diversity of the socio-cultural and ecclesial contexts.

The Continental Assemblies strongly expressed to the General Secretariat of the Synod that the way forward, experienced in the current journey, should penetrate into the daily life of the Church at all levels, either by renewing existing structures or establishing new ones. For this reason, in the Instrumentum laboris for the first Session of the next Synod at the Vatican (October 2023), it is considered appropriate to intervene also in canon law, rebalancing the relationship between the principle of authority, strongly affirmed in the current legislation, and the principle of participation. The issues and especially the proposals put forward in these pages by distinguished personalities from the ecclesiastical and theological world are a contribution to the circularity between prophecy and discernment taking place in the Church.
