Andrea Riccardi (2009) The Sant’egidio Book of Prayer

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.”
Yet 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.
