Importance of Educating Young People In Justice And Peace

During forty-fifth World Day of Peace with a theme "Educating Young People in Justice and Peace", His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI stressed on importance of educating youngsters about justice and peace.

"On the first day of the year, the liturgy resounds in the Church throughout the world with the ancient priestly blessing that we heard during today's first reading: 'The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace'. In order to be blessed, we have to stand in God's presence, take His Name upon us and remain in a space lit up by His gaze, diffusing grace and peace".
