Visiting in the egyptian capital. The pontiff also called in a speech to "block the flow of money and weapons" to "prevent conflicts". “Only peace is holy and no violence can be perpetrated in the name of God. Because she would profane his name”, launched the pope.
“To prevent conflict and build peace. It is essential to work to reduce situations of poverty and exploitation. Where extremism takes root more easily. Also block the flow of money and arms to those who foment violence,” the pope told religious dignitaries.
“Even more at the root, we must fight the proliferation of weapons which, if they are manufactured and sold. Sooner or later, will also be used,” he stressed.
The more Jesus occupies the center of our life, the more he brings us out of ourselves and brings us closer to others. If we are faithful to Christ and do good. We can spread the light of God's hope.
When will men finally understand that violence has never solved anything. Quite the contrary, violence will generate only one thing: VIOLENCE,….consequence of REVENGE.
There is a song that says (and with good reason): “When men live on love, there will be no more misery….”; when humanity will have understood this, a real hope for peace will be reborn!
