When we chose the theme of the XXVI Congress of the World Federation to the Catholic Physician (F.I.A.M.C.), held in Rome from 15 to 17 September 2022, Repairing towards Transforming , in medicin, our aim was to stimulate a reflexion ethic adapted to our time, as well as for a programme of human formation of the Christian Physician.
The message of this congress can essentially be summarized by these two points:
- to help the human person to remain coherent with his or her humanity, in the variable course of history and in the complex fabric of relationships; and
- to articulate reparation and accompaniment of the patient, with transcendence as a horizon. This message is developed in this book, under medical, philosophical and theological aspects by personalities recognized in their respective specialties.
