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

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. ; LOA/KLH ; RR -VM -PR Up: FV
