Pope's message for Peace 2012

The Message, entitled “Educating Young People in Justice and Peace”, which was made public on 8 December, conveys His Holiness’ conviction of the importance of the duty that we all share to educate the young in promoting justice and peace. There is indeed an urgent need in the world today to listen to and enhance the significant role of new generations in the realization of the common good, and in the affirmation of a just and peaceful social order where fundamental human rights can be fully expressed and realized.

 The Pope invites young people to keep alert in today’s troubled world and to seek justice and peace even if it implies opposing the general trend, because peace is not only a blessing to receive but an objective that we should all strive to attain.
