Peace Sunday : 17th January 2021 A Culture of Care as a Path to Peace

On Peace Sunday this year, Pope Francis asks us to think about ‘A Culture of Care as a Path to Peace’.
In his message Pope Francis says: “How many resources are spent on weaponry, especially nuclear weapons, that could be used for more significant priorities such as ensuring the safety of individuals, the promotion of peace and integral human development, the fight against poverty, and the provision of health care.” Pope Francis calls on us to “strive daily, in concrete and practical ways, to form a community composed of brothers and sisters who accept and care for one another.”
You can read his message in full here:
In this country we have an active Catholic peace movement in Pax Christi. Their website suggests many ways we can all promote peace in our daily lives. Resources for Peace Sunday including family resources and activities for children can be downloaded here:
