La Comunità di Sant’Egidio nasce a Roma nel 1968, all’indomani del Concilio Vaticano II. Oggi è un movimento di laici a cui aderiscono più di 60.000 persone, impegnato nella comunicazione del Vangelo e nella carità a Roma, in Italia e in 73 paesi dei diversi continenti. E' "Associazione pubblica di laici della Chiesa". Le differenti comunità, sparse nel mondo, condividono la stessa spiritualità e i fondamenti che caratterizzano il cammino di Sant’Egidio:

La preghiera,che accompagna la vita di tutte le comunità a Roma e nel mondo e ne costituisce un elemento essenziale. La preghiera è il centro e il luogo primario dell’orientamento complessivo della vita comunitaria.

La comunicazione del Vangelo, cuore della vita della Comunità, che si estende a tutti coloro che cercano e chiedono un senso nella vita.

La solidarietà con i poveri, vissuta come servizio volontario e gratuito, nello spirito evangelico di una Chiesa che è "Chiesa di tutti e particolarmente dei poveri" (Giovanni XXIII).

L'ecumenismo, vissuto come amicizia, preghiera e ricerca dell'unità tra i cristiani del mondo intero.

Il dialogo, indicato dal Vaticano II come via della pace e della collaborazione tra le religioni, ma anche come modo di vita e come metodo per la riconciliazione nei conflitti.

  • The Sant'zideo church is a little north of the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere. When I came to a small square with the same name that came through a lot of delicious Ristorante and Trattoria, I came across a simple façade on the slender side, but unfortunately the iron gate and door mouth were closed. What I felt interesting was that the edging of the triangular gable at the top and the curved border of the tan Pan on the lintel on the door mouth was uneven in a similar part and something playful or, sticking to the design was felt. After looking at the façade for a while, I returned to the apartment after the church.

  • It is a crib that reflects the philosophy of the Community. It is the crib of welcome, integration, men of all faiths, races and colors. It is the crib of the "clochards" of the "sans-papiers", the sick and the disabled. It is the crib of the homeless, the real poor, the excluded and the homeless... sharing. The crib of the community of S. Egidio, is the crib of S. Francis and the Child.

  • Small church located in the heart of Trastevere, intersessante the history of this small church which is nicer outside than inside. Worth a short stop.

  • This is a 17th century convent church, originally belonging to Carmelite nuns but now the headquarters of the "Sant'Egidio Community". This is a Catholic lay confraternity which is impressively active in charitable works and takes its prayer life seriously, but is not very interested in making the church available to visitors. Don't try wandering about inside if they are having a prayer meeting here -you will be stopped.
  • A very evocative square that offers interesting cultural ideas there are open spaces dedicated to art in all its forms.
