"We have come to this holy city from various corners of the world. We are together as Christians in this holy place to ask the Lord for the greatest of His gifts, peace, from Him, the King of Peace.” 

JUSTIN WELBY
"In God's economy, we are the poorest of the poor, poorer than ever because we think ourselves rich. Our money and wealth is like the toy money in a children's game: it may buy goods in our human economies which seem so powerful, but in the economy of God, it is worthless. We are only truly rich when we accept mercy from God, through Christ our Savior.”

POPE FRANCIS
"The victims of war, which stains people with hate and the Earth with weapons, they plead for peace; our brothers and sisters, who live under the threat of bombs and are forced to leave their homes into the unknown, stripped of everything, plead for peace.”

During the vigil, every country where there is currently a war was mentioned, from Afghanistan to North and South Korea. There were 27 countries and conflict zones. They also mentioned the violence in Central America, the fights provoking drug trafficking in Mexico, the tension in Venezuela or the war in the Holy Land, Syria and Iraq.

They also remembered priests and religious who are currently kidnapped or detained because of these conflicts.
