Pope asks Catholics to join in prayer to UN's International Day of Peace

2013-09-18

Peace is once again Pope Francis main concern. He asked every Catholic to pray on September 21, the United Nations International Day for Peace. The World Council of Churches has made the same request.   


The Pope encouraged Catholics to take an active role that day. He specially mentioned the Syrian population that suffers from the horrors of war. 

POPE FRANCIS
"My thoughts go especially to the dear people of Syria, whose human tragedy can only be resolved through dialogue and negotiation, with respect for justice and the dignity of every person, specially the weakest and most defenseless.” 

Hundreds of pilgrims crowded Saint Peter's Square to attend the General Audience. It took the Pope half an hour to cross the Square and greet everyone he could. 

-He's four month old. 
-And what's his name? 
-Emiliano. 

The Pope reassured that the Church is a caring mother that protects her children. And added that the Ten Commandments are just an example of how the Church guides her children through life. 

POPE FRANCIS 
"The Church teachs the way of life through the Commandments, that invite us not to make false idols out of material things, but to remember God, respect our parents, to be honest, to stay close to our neighbor...” 

Pope Francis had already compared the Church to a mother, but he came back to the topic, he explained, because he loves it.
