Pope to speak on economic crisis for World Day of Peace
The pope will also encourage everyone to take responsibility when it comes to creating peace.
In his message, the pope will recognize the 50th Anniversary of the Second Vatican Council and the encyclical letter by Pope John XXIII, Pacem in Terris, the Vatican document that lays out the importance of human dignity and freedom. It was also the inspiration for the first World Day of Peace back in 1967.
This will be Benedict XVI's eighth message for the World Day of Peace during his time as pope.
