WHO IS THIS MESSAGE FOR?
It is for anyone who feels the need to be personally involved in working for Peace.
Following the example given by St Francis who called each person by their first name,
and made no distinction between the leper, or cardinal, noble or peasant, where one comes from and what one’s social status is of no importance to our organization. Among the first followers of St. Francis were Bernardo di Quintavalle, a wealthy man; Pietro Cattani, a priest; Egidio, a farmer; Angelo di Tancredi, a noble; Giovanni delle Lodi, a powerful individual, and Ginepro, a very simple person.
Do not ask me for the “passport” of those who are with me.
If they are common people – welcome to common people.
If they are politicians – welcome to politicians.
If they are workers – welcome to workers.
If they are employers – welcome to employers.
If they are either good or evil – welcome to those who are good or evil, because Peace is for everyone.
If by chance among the people around me there were any enemies, they could not be my friends unless we met to make Peace and sat at the same table.
