Message for World Day of Peace: Overcome indifference, win peace

2015-08-13

To overcome indifference and win peace. This is the theme the Pope chose for the 49th World Day of Peace. 

It takes place every year on January 1st. Even though it's still months away, the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace is already highlighting this message on an international level.  The best way to fight indifference, it states, is by developing a strong conscience and by not ignoring the challenging realities faced in different parts of the world

Among those social challenges, there's massive religious persecution and human right violations. 

The World Day of Peace was initiated by Pope Paul VI, to start off every new year.
