This qualitative study presents a renewed definition of Catholic education based on the theological notion of love-caritas-agape which Benedict XVI describes in the encyclical Deus Caritas Est (2005). The traits of love illustrated in the first part of the encyclical have been developed within a model of education enriched by the contributions of contemporary scholars as Bernard Lonergan (philosophy of education), Martin DArcy (anthropology), Paulo Freire (political education), Avery Dulles (theology) and Franco Imoda (psychology).-Benedict XVIs notion of love-caritas-agape draws together significant themes of Ratzingers thought (communio, faith-reason, ethics of witnesses, etc.) and is developed in his further papal teaching.-According to Benedict XVI, love can be an essential animating force of Catholic education within the nature and mission of the Church- it is a form of evangelization, an authentic answer to the current educational emergency.-Moreover, Catholic education is a Church work of charity and mercy.

According to Benedict XVI, this emphasis on love and its educational consequences should make the development Catholic education a priority for the pastoral programs of bishops and for the agenda of international leaders.-The findings of elite interviews to international leaders of Catholic education completed this investigation revealing a generic perception of the potentiality of Benedict XVIs teaching about love as well as of the way he is challenging Catholic institutions to answer the current educational emergency.-International leaders of Catholic education are open to discuss these issues (because of their loyalty to the Church as institution), even if they show a general perception of how Benedict XVIs emphasis on love could challenge Catholic education.
