53rd World Day of Peace, 1 January 2020

On 1 January 2020, the 53rd World Day of Peace, the Community of Sant’Egidio organized its annual March for Peace, supporting the message of Pope Francis: Peace as a journey of hope: dialogue, reconciliation and ecological conversion. “The world is our “common home” and we are all called to take care of it.  There are too many wars still going on and those who suffer most of all are the poor. They have the right to peace through dialogue and reconciliation.  We must also take care of all the lands wounded by the exploitation of nature that await an ecological conversion”.  (Sant’Egidio)

As we embrace the Synodal Journey from 2021 to 2023, let us invite the Holy Spirit to be at work in us so that we may be a community and a people of grace.
