According to America magazine, "The most important Catholic group that you may never have heard of is the Sant'Egidio community." National Catholic Reporter stated that Sant'Egidio has managed "to broker peace accords in war-ravaged countries, pressure the United Nations to pass a worldwide moratorium on the death penalty, and run one of the most successful anti-AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa."
et for all of its accomplishments, the community of Sant'Egidio sees itself primarily as a group committed to prayer. The Sant'Egidio Book of Prayer brings the community's daily prayer to readers, inviting them into its spiritual life and into solidarity with its mission of service and peacemaking.
"I can recommend this volume heartily."
"I am very pleased to introduce this prayer book of the Community of Sant’Egidio, an ecclesial movement that I have known for many years. I can recommend this volume heartily. It contains so many of the answers to the most vital questions of our lives, because it moves us all along the journey to that Word who is Life itself."
Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington
"A way of growing in faith."
"By living the Gospel in community, the members of Sant’Egidio demonstrate a way of growing in faith that is particularly suitable to the most vulnerable among us and to the aspirations of the young. Their journey of faith is not primarily an intellectual one but rather a path where Jesus is encountered as our friend."
"They take the poor seriously."
"They pray seriously, they take the Bible seriously, and they take the poor seriously."
Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini
