Pope Francis’ 2020 World Peace Day Message
Pope Francis’ 2020 World Peace Day Message is entitled: ‘Peace as a journey of hope: dialogue, reconciliation, and ecological conversion.’
The Holy Father begins by saying that hope puts us on the path to peace, while “mistrust and fear weaken relationships and increase the risk of violence.” He urges us to be artisans of peace, open to dialogue in a spirit of reconciliation, on a journey of ecological conversion that leads to a “new way of looking at life.”

The Seminar in Lima-Peru
by Sr. Juscieda Maria; Brasília, June 4-6.
I want to share with you one of the most important moments. On Tuesday all the participants, almost one hundred, were invited to pray in the monument called the Monument of Reparation. In that place they have a labyrinth made by little stones, and each stone represents the all people’s lives that were killed by the terrorists called Sendero Luminoso in Peru. It was a guerrilla organization.
In the center of the labyrinth is the Eye that Cries conveys. It not only denounces the violence committed by human beings in general, but it is also a testimony of recent Peruvian history of violence. There we prayed for all people and their families. We prayed also for all victims of violence in Latin American and over the world.
