|On the occasion of the celebration of the World Day of the Peace of January 1st 2010 the Community of Sant'Egidio, together with other Associations, Movements and Communities, wants to show its support to the words of the Pope and to his concern for peace in the world, still so divided and marked by wars, injustices, poverty and violences.
1 January, day traditionally dedicated to peace, will be accompanied in 2010 by the message of pope Benedict XVI: “If you want to cultivate Peace, protect creation".
The Community of Sant'Egidio in Rome and in many towns of the world organizes initiatives to remember all the lands that in the North and in the South of the world await the end of the war, source of suffering for many peoples and "mother" of all poverty, and the end of the terrorism and hope in the unity and in the peace of the human family.
Christians and believers of all religions, men and women of good will, are invited to join to show that peace is possible and that the war is not inevitable.
