Antwerp, Belgium - Looking forward the Meeting of Religions for Peace

Last 4th February king Abdullah of Jordan promoted together with the Community of Sant'Egidio an initiative of dialogue among representatives of the religions and faiths that are in Belgium.
The initiative starts a path that will lead people of every religion to meet again in Antwerp for the International meeting of the Community of Sant'Egidio “Peace is the Future - Religions and
Cultures in Dialogue”, which will be held from 7th to 9th September 2014.
In the last years the Meetings of Religions for Peace built a common language, a culture of peace, and strengthened a “partnership for peace” with the representatives of civil, cultural and political worlds who walked accordingly.
Today, in this difficult time, with many ongoing conflicts in the world, but also with a sincere search for truth and peace - thinking, for example, to the cultural and spiritual revolution of Pope Francis -, today the spirit of Assisi represents a crucial chance.
100 years after the First World War - the beginning of many wars that have spanned the entire 20th century - it’s time to make a season of peace and justice be established in Europe and throughout the world.
