Pope's First Angelus of 2015: Peace is possible!

2015-01-02

"Dear brothers and sisters, good morning and Happy New Year.”

This is how Pope Francis kicked off the first Angelus of 2015. With thousands of people out in St. Peter's Square, the Pope highlighted that New Years is the perfect time to reflect on one's life as a Christian, including their Baptism date. 

POPE FRANCIS
"How many of you remember? Raise your hand. There are many...well not that many. For those of you who don't remember when you were Baptized, you now have a take home assignment. Find out the date and keep it close to your heart.”

The Pope called on everyone to do their part to promote peace in their lives and ultimately in society. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We are all called to fight against all types of slavery. We're called to build on fraternity. Every one of us, depending on our abilities. Remember, peace is possible.” 

At end of the Angelus the biggest ringing bell in the world, echoed from Rovereto, in northern Italy. The bell,was inaugurated back in 1925, after the First World War. It's a symbol meant to invoke peace. It was built with bronze from cannons that were donated from countries that fought in that war.
