The Vatican Press Office released the preliminary program of the day that Benedict XVI and representatives of world religions will spend together in prayer in Assisi. The day was pre-announced by the Pope on January 1, speaking of the value of religious freedom to bring peace in the world.
Due to take place on 27 October this year, the Pope also wants to remember the 25 years since the first meeting in Assisi, called by Pope John Paul II.
The statement stresses also that non-religious people, committed to justice and peace in the world, will take part.
