“Honoring a Peace Legacy” Reaches Its 100th Session in Argentina

Argentina-2022-12-05-“Honoring a Peace Legacy” Reaches Its 100th Session in Argentina


Argentina— “Honoring a Peace Legacy,” a UPF-Argentina initiative created as a response to the global quarantine on April 20, 2020, reached its 100th session at the end of the 2022 Series. This initiative consists of reading inspiring words from UPF Founders, comments and reflections from participants, and a prayer in the end.

During the weekly meeting on Zoom, which gathers from 10 to 20 participants, among them Ambassadors for Peace and guests, excerpts from Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s autobiography, As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen, were shared, while in previous years we read portions of the Pyeong Hwa Gyeong book (Peace Messages).

“Leaving Behind a Love Legacy” was the title of the content shared during the last 2022 session, on December 5, 2022, which to start off had the showing of an inspirational video, as always. This time the video was: “The Reason Why Sadio Mané Builds Hospitals…” (1). This video is related to Qatar’s World Cup, which has had great expectations here.

The theme of the 34th 2022 Session was “A Meaningful Life.” The 2020 and 2021 editions of “Honoring a Peace Legacy” had 33 meeting each year, continuing through 2022 with 100 sessions in total.

The regular moderators of the 2022 Series have been Inderveer Kaur, representative of the Interreligious Association for Peace and Development (IAPD) in Argentina; Ambassador for Peace Rosa Di LorenzoEmanuel Sayavedra, UPF-Argentina secretary general; and Miguel Werner, UPF-Argentina president. The readings were given by Alba Luz Tangarife, from UPF-Argentina’s Administrative Council; Rosetta Conti, from UPF-Argentina’s Governing Board; and Ailén Marquesano and Erika Alcaraz, UPF-Argentina Staff. After comments from participants, Julio Nardini, representative of Ambassadors for Peace and the International Association of Academicians for Peace (IAAP) in Argentina who gave valuable contributions every edition, gave a “reflection of reflections,” relating highlights of various readings and comments from participants.

The Series’ goal: “To learn from the Founders’ messages and experiences and from participants’ reflections and experiences. To listen and have more empathy, in times where we need to strengthen our spirituality, bonds and unity. To promote a fraternal spirit in an environment of interreligious, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue. To encourage all to greater commitments for common good, in the perspective of Service, Family and Peace.”
