Introduction by Andrea Riccardi

The Community of Sant’Egidio is a movement of lay people founded within the Catholic Church and dedicated to communicating and living out the gospel through prayer, solidarity with the poor and service to peace. Making Peace describes how the Community worked to help resolve civil wars and international conflicts around the globe. Mozambique, Algeria, Kosovo, Liberia and Ivory Coast have all benefitted from its commitment to dialogue that fosters a culture of peace and understanding.

Sant’Egidio also works in the field of health diplomacy in the battle against AIDS in Africa and campaigns vigorously to bring an end to the death penalty. But Sant’Egidio’s message is simple: a way to peace can always be found, and everyone, from professional diplomats to volunteers, from doctors to patients, can make a valid contribution to the peace process. This book presents the fascinating story of Sant’Egidio’s activities for peace and reconciliation for the good of humanity. And their motivation: love of God and love of neighbor.

Christians and Hindus Dialogue About Peace

This makes one hope that “religions can really play a constructive role in conflict situations.”
