In a video message to the US National Catholic Congress on Hispanic Ministry – taking place in Washington, DC – Pope Francis invites participants to reflect on the need to be Christians who can create bridges in all sectors of society.
“Every war is born of injustice, every war, including those that at times we wage in our families and communities, which are fought in silence; they too are born of injustice.” “We all think with mind-sets of war. It is existential Cainism. Brotherhood is for all, and it is made manifest in mind-sets that change the life of families, communities, peoples, nations, and the world,” he says. “I need peace, you need peace, the world needs peace, breathing peace is healthy. We need tangible signs of peace. Christians must set the example.”
