“Santiago will be different from now on because of this beautiful temple that has been given to us
…It doesn’t matter what religion we belong to, what creed we profess, our cities are full of the thirst for silence and to transcend.”
This role the House of Worship has as a “transcendental space that looks for unity and respect for all religious backgrounds” was
emphasised by the representative of the President of Chile, Minister Secretary General Nicolás Eyzaguirre.
“It is a Temple which makes our landscape a more beautiful one,” he added. “It will become an icon and it will remind us how important it is to find the unity between the city and nature.”
The Temple is located in Peñalolen, a commune whose name in the local language means “reunion of brothers.” As the site for the final continental Baha’i House of Worship, there could be no better name, and no better location.
“Today we see the beauty of its creation, together with all the divine and human forces that have made it possible,” Mr.
The governor of the Peñalolen commune, Claudio Orrego, addressed the audience in moving terms. Echoing the Minister’s remarks, he explained that the Temple was seen as a “huge gift” to the citizens of Chile and beyond.

BOGOTA, 12 July 2016, (BWNS) — Approaching a highly anticipated, historic peace agreement in Colombia between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), President Juan Manuel Santos invited over 100 religious representatives to gather at the Presidential Palace on 4 July 2016.
Given the unique role that religion plays in inspiring individuals and communities to work together for the common good, this event sought to explore the contributions religion can make to the peace process in Colombia, a country which has endured almost seven decades of violent civil conflict.
Addressing the audience, President Santos spoke about the common aspiration among all religions for peace and harmony. Drawing on sacred scriptures, he quoted a passage from Baha'u'llah: "So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth."

فى كلمته إلى الأمة أمس بمناسبة الذكرى الخامسة لثورة الخامس والعشرين من يناير، أكد الرئيس عبد الفتاح السيسى أن شبابا من خيرة أبناء الوطن قد ضحوا بأرواحهم، خلال ثورة الشعب المصرى،
وأؤكد للجميع .. أن مصر اليوم ليست مصر الأمس .. وإنما نحن نشيد معا .. دولة مدنية حديثة متطورة .. تعلى قيم الديمقراطية والحرية .. وتواصل مسيرتها التنموية وبناءها الاقتصادى.. وستبقى الدولة المصرية تبذل كافة الجهود اللازمة لمحاربة الفساد والقضاء عليه.. إداريا كان أو ماليا .. إعلاء لقيم المساءلة والمحاسبة .. وحفاظا على المال العام .. وضمانا لبيئة آمنة ومستقرة وجاذبة للاستثمار.
وإلى شباب مصر أقول .. إذا كان الشعب المصرى هو سلاح الوطن لمواجهة التحديات.. فأنتم ذخيرته .. ووقود عمله .. وكل ما تحرص الدولة على إحرازه فإنما هو لكم ولأبنائكم فى المستقبل .. فأنتم ركيزة أساسية من ركائز المجتمع المصرى .. وعامل رئيسى من عوامل تقدمــــــه ونهوضــــــه.
وختاما أقول .. لن ينهض هذا البلد سوى بجهودكم أنتم يا أبناء مصر .. بعملكم الجاد.. بعقولكم المبدعة .. وسواعدكم القوية.. إن صدق النوايا يتعين أن يقترن بحسن العمل .. فوطننا ينادى .. وحتما سنلبى جميعا النداء .. عملا جادا .. وجهدا دءوبا .. إخلاصا لا ينقطع.. فمـن أجلكـم وبقوتكـم تحيــا مصــر.
تحيا مصر عزيزة قوية .. ويحيا شعبها مخلصا أبيا ..
تحيا مصر .. تحيا مصر .. تحيا مصر
Although he didn’t mention the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood directly, the president
criticised the group’s rule of the country, saying that since they were ousted from power, “Egypt has turned from a country that belongs to one group to a country for all.”
"The fair and objective assessment of what Egypt has accomplished in less than two years is that it turned from having an authority that was hostile to the people and the rest of
state’s facilities, to an authority that now respects people's choices and aspirations," El-Sisi said.
