"When you go back home, in your families, in your communities,
enriched by the experience of these days,
let Jesus’ words re-echo in you: « I am with you always,
to the end of the age” (Mt, 28, 20).
Supported by his grace, try to fulfil your commitment
with a renewed enthusiasm; thus scouting will be for you
« a means of sanctification within the Church »
that will favour and encourage «a more
intimate union between concrete life and your faith ».

We WILL MEET Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco

About Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco…

A native from Lombardy, Angelo Bagnasco was born in 1943. His desire to become a priest aroused as a choir boy serving at the altar. Ordained a priest in Genoa in 1966, father Bagnasco served as assistant parish priest and as professor in metaphysics and contemporary atheism at the Theological Faculty of Northern Italy. 

Appointed Bishop of Pesaro in 1998, he then served as military ordinary of Italy, and succeeded Cardinal Bertone as Archbishop of Genoa. 

In 2007 he became president of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, and since 2016 as President of the Council of European Bishops’ Conferences. 

Created and proclaimed Cardinal by Benedict XVI, he was appointed a member of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches, of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, and of the Congregation for Bishops. 

Many observers of the Holy See considered Cardinal Bagnasco as a possible successor to Benedict XVI during the 2013 Conclave in which he took part and which elected Francis. 

Cardinal Bagnasco is known for having severely condemned same sex unions, making a connection between homosexuality, paedophilia and incest. In terms of social doctrine, Bishop Bagnasco defends the right for any worker to have a job.
