JPIC Newsbrief, april 2014


May 7, 2014

JPIC - This month we remember two events that marked the history of the last two decades.

While the first president of a new and democratic South Africa, Nelson Mandela, was pronouncing his famous ‘never again’ speech, another country, Rwanda, was going through one of the most tragic moments of its history.

The Rwandan genocide reminds us that even though in the past century the world experienced such tragic events like world wars, we pray that these events should never happen again. In this sense, the canonization of the Popes John Paul II and John XXIII represents a Christian model for peace building and the struggle to build a better and fair world.
