Cristianesimo

Religione a carattere universalistico fondata sull'insegnamento di Gesù Cristo trasmesso attraverso la letteratura neo-testamentaria. È tra le maggiori religioni, con circa 2, 2 miliardi di fedeli in tutto il mondo. Le maggiori confessioni del cristianesimo sono:
La Chiesa Cattolica Romana nel Simbolo apostolico, cioÈ il Credo, si professa "una, santa, cattolica e apostolica". È governata dal Papa, in qualità di vescovo di Roma, successore di Pietro, e dai vescovi in comunione con lui. www.vatican.va
Ortodossia. Una comunione di Chiese cristiane autocefale, erede della cristianità dell'Impero Bizantino, che riconosce un primato d'onore al Patriarca Ecumenico di Costantinopoli (Istanbul). In Italia ci sono tre grandi gruppi affiliati a diversi Patriarcati: La sacra Diocesi ortodossa d'Italia, La Diocesi rumena d'Italia, la comunità legata al Patriarcato di Mosca.
Protestantesimo. Il termine comprende le Chiese che dichiarano un rapporto diretto con la riforma protestante del XVI secolo, sia nella sua espressione luterana che in quella calvinista e, sia pure con una propria fisionomia, anglicana. In Italia questa famiglia confessionale È rappresentata dalla Chiesa Valdese (Unione delle Chiese Metodiste e Valdesi), dall'Unione cristiana evangelica battista d'Italia, dalla Chiesa Evangelica Luterana. Inoltre sono presenti anche Chiese Avventiste e l' Esercito della Salvezza.
Il Movimento Valdese (oggi Chiesa Evangelica Valdese), nasce verso il 1175 in Francia, per opera di un mercante di Lione, Valdés,che decide di lasciare la propria ricchezza ai poveri e vivere in povertà, predicando l'Evangelo al popolo. Nel 1532 verrà sottoscritta l'adesione alla Riforma protestante.
L'Anglicanesimo ebbe origine nel XVI secolo con la separazione della Chiesa Anglicana dalla Chiesa Cattolica durante il regno di Enrico VIII. La Chiesa Anglicana ha giocato un ruolo propulsivo nel movimento ecumenico e nel dialogo interreligioso, comune ormai a tutta la cristianità

Religions for Peace Multi-religious Delegation meets with Daw Aung Sun Suu Kyi  to Deliver the Letter to the Peoples of Myanmar

Maggio 27th, 2018 by

(Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar | 25 May 2018) The ‘Letter to the Peoples of Myanmar’ carrying a call for peace and development was delivered by the visiting joint delegation of Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Hindu leaders from Myanmar and across the region to the State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on 25 May 2018 in the country’s capital Nay Pyi Taw.

The meeting between the high-level multi-religious delegation and government representatives, including the Minister for Religious Affairs; Minister for International Development; and Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, was marked by a constructive spirit of commitment and cooperation. There was an understanding of the context and the current violence affecting the peoples of Myanmar. The delegation also shared its commitment to positive action and cooperation to be advanced by religious leaders from Myanmar and their counterparts from other parts of the world.

After interacting with the delegation, State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi appreciated its efforts and called the religious leaders to accompany their communities in expanding the concept of ‘happiness’ to include a place for ‘others.’ She noted that everywhere in the world, including Myanmar, ‘some people are left behind.’ By including the ‘other,’ those ‘left behind,’ the mandate for peace and development can be advanced.
She noted the critical role of religious leaders in reminding their faithful of peace and loving kindness and leading them to action and working together. A transformed people, encouraged by their religious communities to advance a shared desire for peace, can usher in ‘progress for all.’
Daw Aung Sun Suu Kyi was positive about the future steps planned for continuing dialogue and multi-religious cooperation. The high-level delegation representing the Buddhist, Christian, Hindu and Islamic traditions also agreed to widely disseminate this call for peace both within and beyond their communities.
In response to the situation in Rakhine State, the letter notes: “We encourage the Union Government to take full responsibilities for a thorough and transparent investigation into multiple crimes perpetrated in Rakhine State and elsewhere. We urge the Union Government to include in this effort the entire population such as the Rakhine, Myo, That, Dynet, Khamee, Kamen and Hindu.”
Daw Aung Sun Suu Kyi welcomed the delegation’s offer of multi-religious solidarity and accompaniment as a track 1.5 mediation for humanitarian response and peace building in Rakhine State, as well as in other ethnic conflict situations. The letter stated: “In search for a solution based upon human dignity and shared well-being and from the perspectives of global responsibility sharing, we call for an international conference with concerned States, United Nations, ICRC and other relevant international actors to address the critical humanitarian issues facing Myanmar.”
The letter noted the “vulnerability of those living within Rakhine State, those suffering in refugee camps in neighboring Bangladesh, and those desiring dignified and safe return to the places they know to be their homes in Myanmar. We call for the exploration of global sharing schemes. The proposed international conference should also address the suffering of people affected by other internal conflicts, including displaced populations from the most recent escalation of armed conflicts in Kachin and Shah States.”
Select representatives from national and international delegations will visit Sittwe and Maundaw, Rakhine State, on 26-28 May 2018 to observe the current situation and engage in dialogue with key local stakeholders.
