Paper - Vocation of the Business Leader

Vocation of the Business Leader

A Reflection

On 30 March 2012, Cardinal Peter K. A. Turkson, President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, addressing the 2000 businesspeople present at the XXIV UNIAPAC World Congress in Lyon, France, presented the volume “Vocation of the Business Leader: A Reflection”.

This 32-pages volume is designed as a vade-mecum, for business leaders trying to integrate their faith with their work, as well as for professors in formative moments in schools and universities.

It had its beginning at an international seminar of business leaders and scholars in Rome, 24-26 February 2011, entitled, “Caritas in Veritate: The logic of Gift and the Meaning of Business” where participants resolved to write a guide for business men and women and business educators, to address the important role of vocation for business leader in today’s global economy and the contribution of the Catholic social Doctrine’s principles for the modern business organization.
