CWN Editor's Note: Click here for a video of the Pope’s meeting with the Community of Sant’Egidio, which was founded by Andrea Riccardi in 1968. “Prayer, poor and peace: this is the talent of the Community,” Pope Francis said. “The Word of God has protected you in the past from the temptations of ideology, and today it delivers you from the intimidation of fear. For this reason, I exhort you to love the Bible and spend increasingly more time it.”
