The current complexity of life, carrying with it direct interdependencies, but also uncertainties of interpretation or misinterpretations, marked the process of European integration. The European Union is currently in an unprecedented stage. The twenty-seven states have generated a specific problem in this game of integration. The disparities between Member States, the fact that the entry into EU structures did not bring about the expected welfare, especially for the former communist countries and the lack of giving hope perspective are all concerns of the European future , of all livings. On the other hand, the European Union, through the institutional framework created by itself, is to help with developing by respecting diversity in the new European world. Without respect for this diversity, integration may become a form without substance largely negating the meaning of life of individuals. Therefore, the sustainability of European construction must be based on spiritual assimilation of integration values, where people, as Europeans, should believe, think, act, live and hope.
