Paul VI, 50 years ago: 'No more war, war never again'

 | 

On this day 50 years ago Pope Paul VI became the first pope to visit and address the United Nations.

It was on Oct. 4, 1965, the pontiff said: “No more war, war never again.” 

He called for everyone to become peacemakers. He called for our church to rediscover his nonviolent roots.

Peacemaking was not incidental to Paul VI’s talk that day; it was at its heart. The following is taken from that historic address.
