Leaning on the problematic of the faith in God in a near future of mankind, with a special attention to the role played by the shrines, and addressing the point along with the main religious traditions of the world, the International Congress The Present of Men, God´s Future: The Shrines place in the relation with the Sacredness reflected the theme from two nuclei. On one side, the Shrine of Fatima and its message theocentric character, as a sign of reference to the sacredness; on the other side, the process of rationalization in modern times, which cheered the western culture of the last centuries and that places itself mostly in the dialectic tension between belief and disbelief. The congress also examined the specific role that shrines have, while space-time of the sacredness experience, in the relationship with God, dedicating itself to the faith and disbelief relation, between sacredness and secularization.
