To the cultural roots

"Their work is an excellent contribution to the creation of common Christian roots in Europe. With their strength and vitality, they form one of the most solid starting points, which must be taken into account in any serious attempt to restore the unity of this continent in a new and modern way ”(Encyclical of Pope John Paul II. Slavorum Apostoli of 2.6.1985)
