In a certain sense Europe denied God and its Christian roots. This is a negative presupposition, in a reflection about a possible Christian contribution to modern Europe in the matter of hope. Europe experienced many deceived and frustrated hopes that came from three directions: the enlightenment, secondly: the attempt of creating a class-less society and thirdly, the infinite faith in the possibility of human progress. Such an Europe needs the key elements of Christian hope: a conscience that human efforts will always be insufficient, and as such should never lead to despair, the unquestionable dignity of man regardless of achieved goals, and finally a universal humanism of a great importance in borderline situations. Christians can help Europe with their message of hope, and with contents stemming directly from Christian hope, that could function as a path for Europe’s recovery: by accentuating the personal responsibility of man, by defining clearly the human dignity, by creating a culture of remembrance, establishing a true tolerance, permeating the public life with elements of Christian optimism, and by means of stressing the importance of a ontological, not only utilitarian, solidarity.
