*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While new US President-elect, Don Trump, speaking from New York, has symbolicaly promissed to the American People, just after his November 2016 Surprize Win, that "the Forgotten Man and Woman, will Never be Forgotten Again", but "that We will all come Together, As Never Before",



shortly afterwards, in Europe, at EU Parliament in Strasbourg :


(1) Experienced Top mainstream ChristianDemocrat MEP Paul Rubig, Chairman of "PanEuropa" Group, Earlier this Month here, introduced an Event on bringing Bethleem's Christmas Light into EU Parliament in Strasbourg, by focusing mainly on a growing Need for "Peace" nowadays, particularly after the recent developments mainly in Syria, but also Ukraine, etc, and their manifold repercussions in Europe and elsewhere in the World.



(2) Long-time Minister of Justice in Austria, Wolfgang Brandstetter, speaking just after an Exceptional EU/CoE Meeting on Turkey's crisis in Strasbourg, stressed the importance it has for Europe and the whole World to really support "Human Rights" and Democratic "Values".



(3) EU Parliament vice-President Mairead McGuinness, from Ireland, speaking later-on to "Eurofora", at the Horizon also of the forthcoming 2019 new European Elections, said that, Nowadays, the Main Issue for MEPs "it's about the People" of Europe, "not so much the Parliament" itself. (See also other McGuinness relevant Statements, at : ...).


=> If some managed to simply Bring all that Together : I.e., "Peace", "Human Rights' Values", and European "People", by Combining it successfuly into one main Policy's inspirations, then, naturaly, many things would get much Better and Brighter during the New Year of 2017...



Wouldn't they ?


Just After that recent US Presidential Election, the 2 Biggest EU Countries, France and Germany, notoriously prepare Crucial Presidential and Parliamentary Elections during 2017, while, in addition to forthcoming Elections also in some other Key EU Countries such as the Netherlands, and Austria on 2018 (etc), Both CoE and the EU are due to Start Preparations for an exceptionaly important PanEuropean Heads of State/Government's Summit and EU Paliament's Elections (respectively) in the run-up towards 2019.


=> During this Exceptional Historic Period which has just Started Nowadays, obviously many "Lightings" will emerge from the various Ideological and other Debates and/or infights. 


But : Shall we have real "LIGHT" ?...

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.



2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
