Abstract

The pandemic is a watershed between a ‘before’, that was already suffering the fatigues of the crisis of the model of a Church’s religion, and an ‘after’ that cannot simply ‘resume’ spaces and times denied in the months of the most rigid lockdown in which the Government had imposed, and willingly accepted by the hierarchies of Catholic Church, the cancellation of any activity in presence. The pandemic has imposed itself as a total social fact and this characteristic asks for a broader reflection on some issues that have more to do with the presence in society of the Church and not just with a simple resuming of ordinary religious functions and services. There are consequences on the sacramental practice, on the community dimension and on the public relevance of the Italian Catholic Church.
