E. Mgr. Vincenzo Paglia, Bishop of Terni-Narni-Amelia, in sight of the Interfaith Meeting of Prayer for Peace that will be held in Krakow (Poland) from 6 to 8 September and that has for title:  "The spirit of Assisi in Krakow".  

During the audience were addresseded also the issues of poverty in the world and of the treatment ofHIV/AIDS in Africa, to whuch the Community of Sant'Egidio gives a great contribution with the program DREAM - 73,000 the patients in care in ten African countries - that the pope had way to know directly on the occasion of his recent journey in Cameroon.
