January 1: Pope on World Day of Peace

Posted on December 28, 2015 in: Articles

A good way to start of the New Year is to spend a little quiet time reading Pope Francis’ message for the celebration of World Day of Peace, which is observed universally in the Church on New Year’s Day.

“Overcome Indifference and Win Peace” is the title of the pope’s message, which begins by noting: “God is not indifferent! God cares about mankind! God does not abandon us! (Italics in original text.)

Among other topics Pope Francis addresses is how to convert hearts from indifference to mercy and how to build a culture of solidarity and mercy to overcome indifference.
