Abstract

In the 1920s, in Belgium, a young priest, Joseph Cardin, founded a new method of apostolate among workers called Revision of Life and gave rise to what was known as Specialized Catholic Action. After the end of the Second World War, his model spread throughout the world and especially among catholic student groups in France. As is well known, in 1965 these Catholic Action groups clashed with the French episcopate, triggering an unprecedented crisis in the youth laity. The French crisis was a questioning of the models of lay action and Catholic Action that reverberated beyond national borders and became a "world case". The article reconstructs the stages of that crisis and investigates the impact they had within the Italian and French Catholic world and in particular within the student world which, involved in the organizations of the international laity and at a time of strong internal crisis, was challenged by the positions of the French students, initiating new reflections.
