WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS

In the silence of the cross

the language of reconciliation, forgiveness, dialogue, and peace is spoken.

 
printable version

In the silence of the Cross, the uproar of weapons ceases and the language of reconciliation, forgiveness, dialogue, and peace is spoken.

My Christian faith urges me to look to the Cross. How I wish that all men and women of good will would look to the Cross if only for a moment! There, we can see God’s reply: violence is not answered with violence, death is not answered with the language of death: forgiveness, dialogue, reconciliation – these are the words of peace.
