Editorial Cumprindo a nossa misso comprendre la raison d'tre de la Caritas en Afrique et dans le monde. Le rapport insiste, tout d'abord, sur l'identit de Caritasetcitel'encycliqueDeusCaritasEst,n.25a : Pour l'Eglise, la charit n'est pas une sorte d'activitd'assistancesocialequ'onpourraitaussi laisserd'autres,maisfaitpartiedesanature,une expressionindispensabledesontre.En2012 et 2013, Caritas Africa a runi les vques et les directeurs/secrtaires gnraux des Caritas nationales de lensemble de la rgion afin de promouvoir l'identit ecclsiale de Caritas. Comprendre l'identit et la mission de Caritas ne doit pas tre limite aux vques et aux gestionnaires des Caritas nationales. Il est de notre responsabilit de faire en sorte que les valeurs de Caritas, que l'esprit et l'attitude appropris soient connues et respectes par toutlemondeauseindesorganisationsCaritas. LePapemriteBenotXVIexpliqueenoutre, dans Deus Caritas Est, quen plus de la formation professionnelle ncessaire, les personnes qui uvrent dans les institutions caritatives de lglise ont besoin et avant tout une formation du cur (n. 31). Les soins techniquement corrects ne suffisent pas (n. 31). Ces travailleurs de a Charit doivent tre enracins dans la rencontre avec Dieu dans leChrist,quisusciteeneuxl'amouretquiouvre leur esprit autrui (n. 31). Le Pape Franois, sadressant au Conseil Reprsentatif de CI, a dclar: Caritas insti- tutionnalisel'Amourdansl'Eglise.Caritasn'est pas seulement pour les situations d'urgence comme une organisation offrant les premier secours. (...) Dans la situation de guerre ou en temps de crise, il est ncessaire de s'occuper des blesss, pour aider les malades (...) mais il est galement ncessaire de les soutenir, de prendre soin de leur dveloppement. En tant que travailleurs sociaux, nous sommes tous certainement dans le service des pauvres, des marginaliss et des plus vulnrables de la socit.Cependant,commetravailleurssociaux de Caritas, nous avons des responsabilits supplmentaires qui nous sont confis et clairement dfinies par l'Enseignement Social de lEglise. Nous soucions-nous d'assumer ces respon- sabilits? Nous soucions-nous de partager ces valeurs et ces principes avec nos coll- gues, les fidles et la communaut en gnral. Sommes-nous en train de remplir notre mission en tant que personnes qui travaillent ou sommes bnvoles au sein de Caritas. another within and outside the organi- sation, understand better the raison dtre of Caritas in Africa and in the world. The Report insists, first and foremost, on the identity of Caritas and quotes the Encyclical Deus Caritas Est, n. 25a: For the Church, charity is not a kind of welfare activity which could equally well be left to others, but is a part of her nature, an indispensable expression of her very being. In both 2012 and 2013, Caritas Africa has brought together Bishops and National Caritas Directors/Secretaries Ge- neral from all over the region to foster the Church identity of Caritas. Understanding the identity and mission of Caritas must not be limited to Bishops and Chief Executives of National Caritas orga- nisations. It is our responsibility to make sure that the Caritas values, mind-set, and attitude be known and adhered to by everyone within Caritas organisations. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI explains further, in Deus Caritas Est, that, in addition to the necessary professional training, Christian charity workers require also and before all else a formation of the heart (n. 31). Technically proper care is not enough (n. 31). Charitable workers need to be rooted in that encounter with God in Christ which awakens their love and opens their spirits to others (n. 31). Pope Francis, in his address to CI Repre- sentative Council, stated: Caritas institutio- nalizes Love in the Church. Caritas is not just for emergency situations as a first aid agency. (...) In the situation of war or during a crisis, there is a need to look after the wounded, to help the ill (...) but there is also a need to support them, to care for their development. As social workers, we are all certainly in the service of the poor, marginalized and most vulnerable members of society. However, as Caritas social workers, we have additional responsibilities entrusted to us and clearly defined by Catholic Social Teaching. Do we care to assume such responsibilities? Do we care to share these values and principles with our colleagues, the faithful and the community in general. Are we fulfilling our mission as individuals working or volunteering within Caritas. dentro e fora da organizao, entender melhor arazodeserdaCaritasemfricaenomundo. O relatrio insiste, em primeiro lugar, sobre a identidade da Caritas e cita a Encclica Deus CaritasEst,n.25a:"ParaaIgreja,acaridadeno umaespciedeactividadedeassistnciasocial que se poderia mesmo deixar para outros, mas pertence sua natureza, uma expresso irrenuncivel da sua prpria essncia" Em ambos anos 2012 e 2013, a Caritas frica juntou os Bispos e Directores Nacionais das Caritas / Secretrios Generais de toda a regio parapromoveraidentidadedaCaritasnaIgreja. A compreenso a identidade e a misso da Caritas no deve ser limitada aos Bispos e aos Chefes Executivos das organizaes Nacional da Caritas. nossa responsabilidade garantir que os valores da Caritas, mentalidade e atitude sejam conhecidos e aceites por todos dentro das organizaes das Caritas. O Papa Emritos Bento XVI explica adiante, na Deus Caritas Est, que, alm da formao profissional necessria, os trabalhadores da caridade Crist precisam tambm e "antes de tudo uma formao do corao (n. 31)."

Papa Francisco, em seu discurso aos representantes do Conselho da CI, declarou: " Caritas Institucionaliza o Amor na Igreja. A Caritas no est apenas para situaes de emergncia como uma agncia primitiva de socorros. (...) Em situao de guerra ou durante uma crise, h uma necessidade de cuidar dos feridos, para ajudar o doente (...), mas h tambm uma necessidade de apoi- los, cuidar do seu desenvolvimento.
