The Vatican has introduced its EXPO pavilion concept

9 June

The Holy See will present the pavilion on the theme "Energy for the Common Good: Caring for our Common Home” at the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. As the Vatican radio reports, the pavilion is organized with the assistance of the local Church and is dedicated to energy as a factor for human advancement and the improvement of the common home, based on the equitable and sustainable use of natural resources.

"The Vatican pavilion includes a digital installation through which visitors can go through photographic, artistic, cultural and spiritual routes, divided into four thematic sectors: the love of God as the source of human and earth creation; energy as an instrument in the hands of a man who did not always use it adequately; the energy for holistic human development and caring for the common home; the power of spirituality, with special attention to prayer, to the search for meaning and to interreligious dialogue,” the Holy See radio station reports.

According to the media, Cardinal Peter Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, has already arrived in Astana to open the exhibition as an authorized representative of the Holy See.

"Cardinal Turkson will stay in Astana until June 11. He is accompanied by the Apostolic Nuncio in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, Monsignor Francis Assisi Chullikatt and representatives of the local Church. The National Day of the Holy See will be take place on September 2,” Vatican radio reports.

Let us remind, earlier during the presentation of credentials by the Kazakh Ambassador Zhanar Aitzhanova in Vatican to Pope Francis, the role of the upcoming exhibition in Astana was noted. Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Holy See Secretary of State, who attended the meeting, noted EXPO 2017 as one of the most effective platforms for the development of bilateral cooperation. As was mentioned in the Vatican, the Catholic Church has great hopes for EXPO in saving the planet.
