Pope Francis on War & Peace

 

 


Peace and reconciliation in Mideast, Africa, and Asia

Francis delivered his traditional "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world), calling for global unity and help for nations suffering from conflicts and humanitarian crises.

He called for peace and reconciliation in Syria, Yemen, Libya, Nagorno-Karabakh, South Sudan, Nigeria and Cameroon and Iraq, which he is due to visit in early March.

He also asked to comfort those suffering from humanitarian crises or natural disasters in Burkina Fasso, Mali, Niger, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The arms race wastes precious resources

[On military spending]: "The arms race wastes precious resources that could be better used to benefit the integral development of peoples and to protect the natural environment," the pope said. "In a world where millions of children and families live in inhumane conditions, the money that is squandered and the fortunes made through the manufacture, upgrading, maintenance and sale of ever more destructive weapons are an affront crying out to heaven," he added.
