Benedict meets with Sant'Egidio

Via Zenit .
The Pope said to the representatives today: "By putting prayer and the liturgy at the center of its existence, the Community of Sant'Egidio seeks to be close to those who are in situations of poverty and social marginalization.

"For a Christian, a person, though distant, is never a stranger."
My only experience of Sant'Egidio has been praying Vespers with them on visits to Rome at the beautiful church of Santa Maria in Trastevere. There's an amazing spirit there, and every trip to the Eternal City, I try and go there the first and last evening.
