On January 1, the Community of Sant’Egidio will stream testimonies from different countries, such as Mozambique, Lebanon, Syria, South Sudan, and Central Africa. Voices from humanitarian corridors and from the Greek Island of Lesbos will be heard, plus a message from Pope Francis.
Even if the lockdown imposed by the pandemic does not allow this year the holding of the traditional march to Saint Peter’s Square on World Peace Day, Sant’Egidio Community does not forgo starting the New Year together with those who work for a more just and more human world, free of war, terrorism and all forms of violence. Therefore, on January 1 it invites to take part, at 11:05 am, in streaming on www.santegidio.org – to
“Peace in all lands 2021,” a “virtual manifestation” across different areas of the world, to be concluded in connection with the Pope’s Angelus.
