*Brussels/EU Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- In Exclusive Statemens to "Eurofora" on the sidelines of his Press Conference at EU Heads of State/Governments' Summit in Brussels, New EU Parliament's President David Sassoli from Italy, Urged for "Strong (EU) Citizens' Voices" !

He had just presented to -and Discussed with-  the Summit the Outcome of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee's Votes on MEPs' Amendments, Earlier this Week in Brussels, to a Draft Resolution on how to Shape concretely the forthcoming Conference for Europe's Future.

- But "Eurofora" had noticed that the Initial Landmark References to EU Citizens' input had, apparently, paled away, almost vanished, or were, comparatively, marginalized in the Latest relevant Official Documents...

 

+Therefore, we also asked French President Emmauel Macron's Counselor on European affairs, Clement Beaune, whether Macron really persisted in his Original Ambitious Vision, (Highlighted initialy at his landmark Speech at Acropolis' Historic Pnyx Rock, back on September 2017), or had, eventually, marked any relevant Last-Minute Change, perhaps towards relativizing it, in one way or another.

 

Beaune's immediate reaction to "Eurofora"s query was to Stress that Macron maintained his Original Vision and proposals, without any doubt.

 

=> Therefore, President Sassoli's Reply to our above-mentioned Question, by ricochet, gets another, even more Topical Meaning :

- "We (EU) Need Strong Citizens' Voices, in order to Hear what they have to Say !", told "Eurofora" the President of EU Parliament, (who has worked also as a Journalist himself, for a Long Time), Smiling...

>>> In other words, it's up to EU Citizens to Strive to really Earn and deserve their place inside the EU Decision-Making process for the foreseable Future !...:

 In EU Summit's Conclusions, published later today, EU Heads of States/Governments, after having discussed this issue with EU Parliament's President Sassoli from the Beginning of their Brussels' meeting of this December 2019, decided to "Define a Council Position", not only "on the Content" and "Scope", but also on the "Composition and Functioning" of "a Conference on the Future of Europe", which "should contribute to the Development of our (EU) Policies in the Medium and Long Term, so that we can Better Tackle current and future Challenges".

- It  "should Build on the succesful holding on Citizens' Dialogue, over the Past 2 Years (2018+  See, f.ex., inter alia, also "Eurofora"s NewsReports from the Inauguration of EU Citizens' Consultations by Frech President Macron at nearby Vosges Mountains, etc., at : ..., ..., etc), "and Foresee Broad Consultation of Citizens, in the course of the Process", for which there is a wider "Need to be Inclusive", this Brussels' EU Summit officially "underlined" further on.

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
