On the occasion of his visit to Rome and the Vatican, where he will be received by Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Chrysostomos II, head of the Orthodox Church of Cyprus, will visit tonight by the Community of Sant'Egidio.

Intense program of the meeting: starting with a visit to a home for the elderly operated by Sant'Egidio on the slopes of the Gianicolo, a sign of dedication to the poor of the city; He will also meet with the leaders of the Community within the Trastevere, and finally, will preside over the appointment of the evening prayer in the basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, at 8:00 pm.

Ecumenism, communion in love, visions of peace between the two shores of the Mediterranean are the common signs of a long friendship between the Cypriot Orthodox Church and the Community of Sant'Egidio.

The Orthodox Church of Cyprus supports DREAM for many years, the program of the Community of Sant'Egidio for AIDS, active in 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

The bond of friendship and cooperation has been strengthened in 2008, when Sant'Egidio and the Archdiocese of Cyprus organized together, in Nicosia, the meeting of Prayer for Peace, in the spirit of Assisi, a few months preceding the visit Benedict XVI to the island in the Mediterranean.
