.- Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin focused on the success of the peace process in Northern Ireland and looked to the future of the Church and its role in peacekeeping in his roundtable discussion yesterday at the 2007 Rimini meeting.

“The Church has this mission, not to create a new politics…but to ensure that in a society, the roots and foundations for truth are there,” Vatican Radio reports.

 He emphasized the importance of this message to maintain peace, but also “to provide the foundations for the truth of a stable future for our young people of Ireland.”

 “The church has to completely renew its structures of mission and evangelization and of catechesis so that we would produce new Christians who are not troubled by the worries of the past, but who are prepared to bring the very special contribution to building up a sustainable future for the country.”

The Rimini meeting is a week-long, annual event organized by the movement, Communion and Liberation.  On average, it attracts nearly 700,000 people of different faiths and cultures who wish to explore and share knowledge.
