The light of the Gospel
is the guide for anyone who places
him/herself at the service of a civilization of love,
where the Beatitudes have a social resonance,
where there is true inclusion of the least.
“Practical Dimensions of Christian Solidarity in the Global World”
The “One Minute for Peace” initiative was launched by the International Forum Catholic Action (IFCA), the Argentinian Catholic Action, the Italian Catholic Action, in support of the “Invocation for Peace” meeting, promoted by Pope Francis on June 2014 with the President of Israel (Simon Peres), the President of the Palestinian Authority (Maḥmūd ʿAbbās – Abu Mazen), and the Patriarch of Constantinople (Bartholomew I).
Since 2015, every year, “One Minute for Peace” has been promoted around the world on June 8 at 1.00 pm.
We ask all visitors to our website to encourage and propose to all those who care about peace, to believers and non-believers, a minute of prayer or silence. We can pray alone or in groups, in our homes or in the places of work or study.
Support this initiative by spending one minute on 8th June at 1.00 p.m.in prayer and increase the number of MINUTES FOR PEACE worldwide.
Unum Omnes, a NGO with consultative status, was invited to participate in the Forum of Catholic Inspired Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). The Forum provides opportunities for dialogue and exchange among Catholic Inspired NGOs in order to offer a strengthened Christian witness at the international level. Recently the forum has created a website www.foruminternational.org. Over the coming months, as the site is developed, more information will be added
