A Better World
Reflections on Peace and Fraternity
Pope Francis Tawadros II Coptic Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark
We live today in an unstable and dangerous world. Countless people are plagued by war and fear and are oppressed by hatred and intimidation. The world is hungry for peace.
Pope Francis has made great efforts to stop violence and hatred and continually calls the world to peace. A Better World is another invitation from the Holy Father to love one another and to work diligently for peace.
In the homilies, addresses, and writings collected in this book, Pope Francis reminds us, as children of God, to be kind in our daily actions and compassionate toward others, even those who are different from us and whom we must accept with love. When conflicts arise, we are called to resolve them through dialogue and the quest for peace, not through hatred and war. Lasting peace is not the result of violent means but is achieved through dialogue and fraternity.
