The nation of Malta’s six-month term leading the Presidency of the Council of the European Union is an “opportunity to give a strong impetus to revitalize faith in the European Project,” according to Archbishop Charles Scicluna.
“The Catholic Church and European Christian Churches (CEC) urge the
EU to return to the values of the EU founding fathers by solving common
problems together building on their shared history, and to consider the
European project as more than just a common market,” the Maltese
archbishop said in comments published in the March newsletter of the
Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community.
