World Peace Day – A Message from Pope Francis

pope-francisLiving as one family is the foundation and pathway of peace” is the theme given By the Pope for this year’s celebration and prayer. He says: “In the heart of every man and woman is the desire for a full life, including that irrepressible longing for fraternity which draws us to fellowship with others and enables us to see them not as enemies or rivals, but as brothers and sisters to be accepted and embraced. Fraternity is an essential human quality, for we are relational beings. Without fraternity it is impossible to build a just society and a solid and lasting peace.” For the full message, download the World Peace Day document.
