At a Rome event on Friday, a Vatican official praised the “parallel diplomacy” of the Community of Sant’Egidio.
25 Ministers of Justice from around the world, led by the Catholic community of Sant’Egidio, have appealed to California Governor Jerry Brown to impose a moratorium on the death penalty.
Religions, which are meant to build bridges, contradict their very nature if they stop pursuing the path of peace, Pope Francis said.
Two years ago, Pope Francis flew back from the Greek island of Lesbos to Rome with twelve Syrian refugees. Crux spoke to one family that comes across as a success story.
In a letter to the New York Times, the U.S. vicar of Opus Dei said that the personal prelature has no conflict with Pope Francis, but supports him and is united with his mission.
Around 40 Syrian refugees arrived in Rome on Tuesday as part of a humanitarian corridor created by the Community of Sant’Egidio, often known in the Francis era as “the pope’s favorite movement.”
