Second Conference on "Paths of Freedom through the Pyrenees"

On November 22, 2008, the Second Conference of Camins de llibertat a traves dels Pirineus (Pathways of freedom through the Pyrenees), took place in the Rocafort Auditorium in Sant Julià de Lòria. More than a hundred people attended the event. The conference made mention of the passage of St. Josemaría through Andorra, after crossing the Pyrenees, in the autumn of 1937. It was organized by the Association of Friends of the Path of Pallerols de Rialb to Andorra, with the collaboration of the University of Andorra and the city government of Sant Julià de Lòria, the Government of Andorra, and the Regional Council of L’Alt Urgell. The object of the gathering was to recall all those who throughout the centuries have crossed the Pyrenees in one direction or the other in search of better living conditions and greater freedom. Jordi Piferrer spoke about the expeditions led by the famous guide Josep Cirera, and highlighted especially the group that included St. Josemaría. His presentation ended with the projection of an interview with Cirera himself.

Albert Pintat, Head of the Government of Andorra, closed the conference. He encouraged its organizers to continue their work of fostering the ideals of mutual respect, freedom and coexistence.
