See Judge Act with Cardinal Turkson

Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson and the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace of which he is president are both emphasising the importance of Cardijn’s See Judge Act method.

Addressing a 30 March – 1 April congress in Lyon, France, organised by UNIAPAC, the ecumenical business leaders movement, Cardinal Turkson pointed to the method as a tool for discerning the vocation of the business leader.

In fact, this speech was basically an introduction to a new document published by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace entitled “Vocation of the Business Leader: A Reflection“.

This whole 32 page document is explicitly organised into three sections based on the See, Judge and Act.

It’s great to see Cardinal Turkson promoting the SJA but perhaps not so surprising since he comes from a country with a great Cardijn tradition.

Indeed, the International YCW will this year organise its XIII World Council in Accra, Ghana.
