    12 february 2011, World Interfaith Harmony Week – February 1-7, 2011
    Sister Germaine Price, representing the Company of the Daughters of Charity at the United Nations, shares the news below from the UN:

    In October 2010, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously passed a resolution to recognize World Interfaith Harmony Week annually during the first week of February.

    The initiative was sponsored by HM King Abdullah II of Jordan who stated that World Interfaith Harmony Week is “…not a call to water down one’s faith, but rather a call to respect our differences and personal beliefs and to unite around the basic principles that people of all beliefs agree upon and to understand that harmony can only come if we build upon a solid foundation of dialogue that has ‘Love of God and love of neighbor or, love of Good and love of neighbor’ as its core principle for engagement”. The UN is urging Countries to participate in this week calling for

    1. Reaffirming that mutual understanding and interreligious dialogue are important ways to bring about peace,

    2. Encouraging all Countries to support, on a voluntary basis, and to spread the message of interfaith harmony and goodwill in its churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other places of worship,

    3. Asking the Secretary-General to keep the General Assembly informed of the implementation of the resolution.

    To initiate the official UN “World Interfaith Harmony Week” the Committee of Religious NGOs at the United Nations and the NGO section of UN DPI sponsored an interfaith breakfast with HRH Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al Hussein of Jordan as an honored guest.
