Read and listen to our little prayer of April 25, 2023
History has taught us so much, perhaps everything: it has taught us religion, faith, the justice, equality, thelove.
We have also learned all this from mistakes, cruelties, wars, injustices, abuses, discrimination, hatred.
Have we understood, have we understood all this, have we built current history based on the lessons of the past?
Using weapons to resolve conflicts is a sign of weakness and fragility. Negotiating, proceeding with mediation and starting conciliation requires courage. #PeacePope Francis via Twitter
If we are lucky enough to listen to women, men who still have signs of the Second World War on their skin, let's not escape them, let's listen with keen interest and passion: it will help us to be better, wiser, more just.
