Pope’s quotes: Seek peace

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Peace: this word summarizes all the assets to which every person and all human societies aspire. Also the effort with which we seek to promote diplomatic relations has, in the final analysis, the sole aim of allowing peace to grow in the human family, in development and justice. It is a target that is never fully reached, and that must be continually sought after by every generation, facing the challenges presented in every age.”
