VATICAN CITY, OCT 15, 2004 (VIS) - The Pope today welcomed 400 participants in a meeting held in Rome to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the European Conference of Christian Radios. He thanked the "numerous European Radios, from the Atlantic to the Urals" for having worked over the years "to consolidate, among listeners, the awareness of their common Christian roots and to stimulate in them a commitment to serve peace."

    By your work, the Holy Father said, "you have thus given a precious contribution to building Europe on ethical and spiritual foundations, promoting understanding and bringing the people of our continent closer to each other." He exhorted his guests "to persevere with generosity in this important mission .May your voices, in the variety of your respective programs, continue to give witness to Christ, salvation of the world, and to announce His Gospel of peace to everyone."

  The ECCR was founded in Brussels in 1994 by four radio organizations: COPE in Spain, RCF in France, CORALLO in Italy and RR, Radio Renascenca in Portugal. Its aims are to promote human rights, democracy and a "European conscience" among peoples and to share experiences among Christian radios. ECCR has NGO (Non-governmental organization) status and is comprised of 14 members and 2 "friends," including Vatican Radio and Radio Suisse Romande.
