World Religion Day - January 19, 2014

World Religion Day, celebrated this year on January 19, 2014, aims to foster the establishment of interfaith understanding and harmony. This day highlights the common denominators underlying all religions and encourages people to recognize the similarities between faiths.

The Message

"Mankind, which has stemmed from one origin, must now strive towards the reconciliation of that which has been split up. Human unity and true equality depend not on past origins, but on future goals, on what we are becoming and whither we are going. The prime cause of age-old conflict between man and man has been the absence of one ethical belief, a single spiritual standard – one moral code."
