The author strongly emphasizes the role of the three religions who live in Jerusalem, which have in common monotheism, and that gave an original, unique and holy face to the city, despite moments of fundamentalism and sharp contrasts. For the future it should be found, with good will and a concrete vision, a concrete and just structure where the different interests and aspirations are composed in a harmonious and stable manner. This can be happen setting emphasis on the following points: 1) attention to international pronouncements, 2) important aspects of spiritual, cultural and historic Jerusalem, 3) not only including the monuments but also the whole historical Jerusalem, 4) presence of different religious communities that live there, 5) need to find a concrete and appropriate way to protect the various rights of all with a special "internationally guaranteed status", 6) different religious faiths but along with the religious identity of the city in terms of common "monotheistic faith", 7) the need for peace and reconciliation between Israel and the Palestinian people. The author also sheds light on the role of the Holy See in pursuing these directions, and particularly those of international cities and towns, "the mother of justice for all people, really unique and universal".
