Review

I am very pleased to introduce this prayer book of the Community of Sant'Egidio, an ecclesial movement that I have known for many years. I can recommend this volume heartily. It contains so many of the answers to the most vital questions of our lives, because it moves us all along the journey to that Word who is Life itself. --Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington

About the Author

The Community of Sant'Egidio was founded in Rome during 1968 by a group of high school students, led by Andrea Riccardi. A lay association of the Catholic Church, Sant' Egidio is today made up of 50,000 members living in 70 countries worldwide. Its main activities are prayer, service to the poor, ecumenism, and interfaith dialogue. The community is especially known for its work with the elderly, AIDS patients, and the homeless. In recent years, Sant'Egidio has gained the international spotlight for its role as peacemakers in war-torn regions of the world.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Widely regarded as one of the most important lay ecclesial movements since Vatican II, The Community of Sant'Egidio has worked for over 41 years in loving friendship with the poor and for peace and justice worldwide, but all its labors are born from prayer. This beautiful small volume is the first book of Sant'Egidio about Sant'Egidio and so introduces the reader into not only into the Community's way of prayer but also into knowledge of the Community itself. From its humble beginnings as a gathering of high school students in Rome who met "to pray, to take the Gospel seriously, and to meet the poor" the Community of Sant'Egidio has grown to, among other things, mediate the end of the Mozambican civil war, create the most effective anti-HIV/AIDS program on the African continent, successfully petition the United Nations to pass the moratorium on the death penalty, run Schools of Peace for disadvantaged children living amidst violence, and to humanize the poverty of the elderly by caring for them as beloved family members.

Present in over 70 countries, and with growing numbers in the U.S. with communities in such cities as New York, Boston, the Twin Cities, Washington, D.C., South Bend, IN, and Oxford, MS, the Community of Sant'Egidio gathers publicly in prayer and friendship with the poor. For those who are unable to experience prayer with the Community firsthand, this is a lovely volume to pray with daily, as Cardinal Theodore McCarrick writes in his introduction, "it contains so many of the answers to the most vital questions of our lives, because it moves us all along the journey to that Word who is Life itself."
