Sant'Egidio, the U.N. of the Trastevere ---- the life and work of an intentional community

In John Allen's The Word From Rome this week: the life and work of one of the most controversial of the new communities in the Church, noted for putting their bodies where their words and their prayers are.

Martyrs of the Twentieth Century.  The icon of the Community of Sant'Egidio

The Community's icon is also worthy of perusal, even more than John Allen's article and interview.

and a larger picture of it (which is really needed to appreciate!) is at:
