The final chapter describes how Catholic Action’s non-partisan character influenced Catholic university students in Mexico, Chile, and throughout Latin America. It then suggests that young Catholic university students used Vatican restrictions on electoral politics in the early stages of Christian Democratic party formation. In essence, both the Vatican and Christian Democrats desired to detach Church-sponsored organizations from partisan politics. The chapter details the experiences of these young university students in Rome at an international Catholic Action conference. It follows the travels of Eduardo Frei and Manuel Garretón who toured Europe and surveyed the political Catholic movements in Europe at the time.
