At the dawn of the Postmodern Global Ecological Era

precipitated by the post-industrial Electronic Revolution,

and praying fervently to the Holy Spirit for the gifts of wisdom and courage,

we the leaders of Pax Romana’s US Intellectual-professional federation

humbly and warmly invite our global Protestant, Orthodox, and Catholic sisters and brothers,

including from all twenty-three sui juris Catholic Churches,

as well as interested persons of good will,

to join with us electronically in pursuing the

 


PACEM IN TERRIS GLOBAL LEADERSHIP


INTELLECTUAL-ARTISTIC ECUMENICAL INITIATIVE.


Employing global electronic communications and digital materials,

the Initiative will promote locally and globally prayer, sharing, and study

to Read the Signs of the Time and to employ the See-Judge-Act method,

with the prayerful hope of contributing in two ways to

a postmodern global intellectual-artistic renaissance.



First, the Initiative will humbly try to help our Global Human Family,

whose majority now lives in the Global South of Planet Earth,


to navigate through the traumatic environmental, social, and spiritual breakdown of


the Modern Industrial-Colonial form of Western Civilization,


and within that journey to create an environmentally, socially, and spiritually regenerative


Postmodern Global Ecological Civilization.

 


Second, the Initiative will also humbly try to help our Global Christian Family,


whose majority now also lives in the Global South of Planet Earth,


to navigate through the traumatic environmental, social, and spiritual breakdown of


the Modern Industrial-Colonial form of Western Christian Evangelization,


and within that journey to create an environmentally, spiritually, and socially regenerative

Postmodern Global Ecological Evangelization

    


In a framework which places Religion in dialogue with Philosophy and Science,

we ground this Initiative in Postmodern Global Catholic Social Teaching as founded by John XXIII,


in the ancient holistic Christian teaching of the two complementary books of Divine revelation,


namely the Book of Nature and the Book of the Bible,


and in the emerging postmodern philosophical-scientific New Cosmology

of holistic co-creative evolution,

 


We undertake this Initiative for the sake of


our children and our children’s children for countless future generations.


We hope and pray this Initiative will help us to pass on to all of Earth’s children


a regenerative and sustainable Postmodern Global Ecological Civilization,


and a regenerative and sustainable Postmodern Global Ecological Evangelization.


We dedicate this Initiative to Africa’s late great ecological leader, Wangari Maathai,


and to all young women and young men

who seek to become postmodern regenerative global leaders.


Finally, we ask for your prayer that the Holy Spirit guide this Initiative.
