Andrea Riccardi founded a religious community -Sant’Egidio- in 1968 when he was just 28 years old without big plans: pray together and aid the poor. Now his community has grown into a big international organization so much so that they broker peace. When there is so much unrest, violence and hatred and divide in the world, who listens to the likes of Riccardi? Well, he says: ” We all are volunteers. Our lack of vested interest gives us moral authority”. That is so aptly said! For details about his work, please visit http://www.santegidio.org
