International Day of Peace - 2011



Marks the 25th anniversary of the World Day of Prayer for Peace convened in Assisi in 1986 by Pope John Paul II.




 Pope Benedict XVI Fundamentalism and relativism, enemies of religious freedom and peace.
In his message for World Day of Peace 2011, shows solidarity with the many persecuted Christians (Iraq, the Holy Land, ...), but also highlights that persecution does not only come from Islamic terrorism, but also secular Western society that stifles the religious dimension, eliminating an important element for human life and coexistence between peoples.



Prince of Peace, We plead for inner peace, external peace, global peace
and above all for L-A-S-T-I-N-G peace.
Help us to become the change we wish to see
In  ourselves, in the world and in the cosmos.
