Exhibitions

Paintings, music, books, drama, exhibitions and symposia have long made particularly important contributions of culture to greater tolerance and respect for other religions, races and minorities. Such contributors use their artistic freedom and have been pioneers of peaceful coexistence for centuries.

The Global Tolerance Initiative shows it “Art of Tolerance” at international art events all over the world.

On the posters we wrote:
Grazie Papa Francesco!

Per l’ impegno profondamente  cristiano di Amore e Misericordia , come richiesto da Gesù nella nostra Sacra Bibbia.

Possano tutti i Cardinali , Vescovi e Sacerdoti leggere la nostra Sacra Bibbia con animo aperto , e seguire il Suo saggio consiglio animati da grande amore.

Preghiamo tutti per la Sua Persona e la Chiesa con “Cuore pensante e animo ricco d’amore”.

Thank you Pope Francis!

For your true Christian engagement with love and mercy, as demanded by Jesus so often in our Holy Bible.

May all cardinals, bishops and priests read our Holy Bible with open eyes, hearts and minds and follow your wise advice with love.

Let us all pray for you and the church with a „thinking heart and a loving mind“.
