Peace As A Journey Of Hope:
Dialogue, Reconciliation And Ecological Conversion
Pope Francis laments, in his message for 2020’s World Day of Peace, that the human community “bears the scars of ever more devastating wars and conflicts,” calling on Christians to reject systems of security, such as nuclear deterrence, built on fear of others.
In the message, the pontiff also ties together his frequent call for global nuclear disarmament with his pleas for a more just economic system and better protection of the environment and natural resources.
