56. Andechser Europatag: - Europe's Freedom Idea, as the basis of the World order


56. Andechser Europatag der Paneuropa-Union Germany


17. 10. 2021  Andechs.

With the theme of freedom, the 56. Christian Europe Day of "Paneuropa-Union Deutschland" in the Oberbayerischen Monastery Andechs.

Its president, the CSU European politician Bernd Posselt, quoted Paneuropa founder Richard Graf Coudenhove-Kalergi, who called for resistance to National Socialism immediately before the outbreak of the Second World War, and said: "Europe is not just a continent, but an idea, and this is "Freedom"."

The basis for this is the conception of Human Dignity, which is widely used by Christianity and Humanism. This is also the starting point for the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

Today, the World is faced with a Test of tears: On the one hand, the possibility for the human being to be Destroyed almost infinitely, and in the digitalised and globalised "world village", everyone is more Dependent than ever before, as the pandemic crisis has proven. On the other hand, the common cultural and ethical basis of the international order will always weaken. In Afghanistan, it has been shown in a dramatic manner that the colonial export of Western ...companies was doomed to failure.

However, this should not mean putting into question the universality of human rights, that the United Nations had, at least in theory, achieved after the Second World War. The way out of this dilemma can only be in a patient and knowledgeable Dialogue between the different world religions and cultures. In order for this to be successful, one must meet one another at eye level, listen to the other, know something about him and, as Pope Francis called for, also "go to the margins". He only creates who "Co-works, loves and suffers". If you think this is an illusion, you can "pack it right."


At the well-attended Meeting of theologians Prof. Veit Neumann with the subject of "Freedom and God", Johannes Modesto, who is responsible for the archdiocese of Munich and Freising for seligration proceedings, with Romano Guardini and the White Rose, the religious philosopher Beate Beckmann-Zöller, with the philosopher and European patroness Edith Stein, (who was murdered in Auschwitz), and the Prague political scientist Blanka Mouralova with the totalitarianism concept of Hannah Arendt.

In an "evening of freedom" at the Klostergasthof, Robert Wild sang for the guitar freedom songs, and Francis Posselt of the Pan-European Youth made himself in a confessed literary form as their "courier" to the voice of the Statue of Liberty. Celebrant of the festive service in honor of the Holy Hedwig in the pilgrimage church was the Polish Minorite Father Prof. Zdzislaw Josef Kijas from Rome. The topic of "Freedom and Courage-engines for a Living Europe" was discussed at the final podium of the professor from Rome, by the psychologist Consuelo Gräfin Ballestrem, the restaurant founder and chef Johannes Belling from France, the Czech diplomant Jan Šícha, the youngest district president Hessens, Johannes Volkmann, as well as the media lawyer Dirk H. Voß.

56. Andechser Europatag: Europas Freiheitsidee als Grundlage der Weltordnung


56. Andechser Europatag der Paneuropa-Union Deutschland

Europas Freiheitsidee als Grundlage der Weltordnung


17. 10. 2021


Andechs. Mit dem Thema Freiheit befaßte sich der 56. Christliche Europatag der Paneuropa-Union Deutschland im oberbayerischen Kloster Andechs.

Ihr Präsident, der CSU-Europapolitiker Bernd Posselt, zitierte den Paneuropa-Gründer Richard Graf Coudenhove-Kalergi, der unmittelbar vor Ausbruch des Zweiten Weltkrieges zum Widerstand gegen den Nationalsozialismus aufgerufen und dabei gesagt habe: „Europa ist nicht nur ein Kontinent, sondern eine Idee, und diese ist die Freiheit.“

Grundlage dessen sei die von Christentum und Humanismus weltweit verbreitete Konzeption von der Menschenwürde. Diese bilde auch den Ausgangspunkt der EU-Grundrechtecharta. Heute stehe die Welt vor einer Zerreißprobe: Einerseits sei die Möglichkeit des Menschen zum Zerstören fast unendlich geworden und im digitalisierten wie auch globalisierten „weltweiten Dorf“ sei jeder von jedem abhängiger denn je, wie die Pandemiekrise bewiesen habe. Andererseits werde die gemeinsame kulturelle und ethische Basis der internationalen Ordnung immer schwächer.

In Afghanistan habe sich auf dramatische Weise gezeigt, daß der kolonialistische Export westeuropäischer Gesellschaftsvorstellungen zum Scheitern verurteilt sei. Dies dürfe aber nicht bedeuten, die Universalität der Menschenrechte, wie sie die Vereinten Nationen nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zumindest theoretisch verwirklicht hätten, in Frage zu stellen.

Der Ausweg aus diesem Dilemma könne nur in einem geduldigen und kenntnisreichen Dialog zwischen den verschiedenen Weltreligionen und –kulturen liegen. Damit dieser gelinge, müsse man einander auf Augenhöhe begegnen, dem anderen zuhören, etwas von ihm wissen und, wie dies Papst Franziskus gefordert habe, auch „an die Ränder gehen“. Dies schaffe nur, wer „mitarbeitet, mitliebt und mitleidet“. Wenn man dies für eine Illusion halte, könne man „gleich einpacken.“


In Fachreferaten befaßten sich bei der gut besuchten Tagung der Theologe Prof. Veit Neumann mit dem Thema „Freiheit und Gott“, Johannes Modesto, der bei der Erzdiözese München und Freising für Seligsprechungsverfahren zuständig ist, mit Romano Guardini und der Weißen Rose, die Religionsphilosophin Beate Beckmann-Zöller mit der in Auschwitz ermordeten Philosophin und Europapatronin Edith Stein und die Prager Politikwissenschaftlerin Blanka Mouralova mit dem Totalitarismusbegriff von Hannah Arendt. Bei einem „Abend der Freiheit“ im Klostergasthof sang Robert Wild zur Gitarre Freiheitslieder, und Franziskus Posselt von der Paneuropa-Jugend machte sich in gekonnter literarischer Form als deren „Kurier“ zum Sprachrohr der Freiheitsstatue. Zelebrant des Festgottesdienstes zu Ehren der Heiligen Hedwig in der Wallfahrtskirche war der polnische Minoritenpater Prof. Zdzislaw Josef Kijas aus Rom. Das Thema „Freiheit und Mut – Motoren für ein lebenswertes Europa“ diskutierten beim abschließenden Podium der Professor aus Rom, die Psychologin Consuelo Gräfin Ballestrem, der Restaurantgründer und Küchenchef Johannes Belling aus Frankreich, der tschechische Diplomant Jan Šícha, der jüngste Kreistagspräsident Hessens, Johannes Volkmann, sowie der Medienanwalt Dirk H. Voß.

It's at a splendid Natural landscape, inside a Forest plateau with superbe view over Paris, at Saint Cloud, that the incoming French EU Presidency had the good idea to join together all EU Member Countries' Ministers of Environment and Energy, in two overlaping EU Councils in a series, from 3 to 5 July 2008.

Fresh rain happily dissipated July's heatwave, before a bright Sun shined at the conclusion of the EU gathering around a huge statue of Earth (See Photo).

French super-Minister of State for Energy, Transport and Environment, Jean-Louis Borloo, and Minister for Environment, Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet chaired the first EU Ministerial meeting at Paris' area, together with EU Commissioners Demas and Pielbags, surprising Journalists with improvised Press-points, at key-moments of the discussions.

Environment and Energy are key to the development of New Technologies to boost Europe's role in the World, while also responding to Citizens' concerns, stressed Borloo, speaking to Journalists earlier in Strasbourg.

According to well-infomed sources from the French EU Presidency, the aim is to stimulate a growing trend inside EU Parliament, via various on-going Reports developping in parallel, towards achieving the necessary targets before December.

For this purpose, Top-level representatives from Borloo's super-Ministry are expected to come in Strasbourg during EU Parliament's plenary, next Wednesday, a key official told "EuroFora".
