Vatican City, Feb 10, 2022 / 06:00 am
In a video message on Thursday, Pope Francis encouraged Christians to stay committed to making the world a more just and peaceful place, as his predecessor Pius XII urged 70 years ago.
Pope Francis sent his brief message to the Movimento per un Mondo Migliore (Movement for a Better World), which is celebrating 70 years since its founding in 1952.
The Catholic group was created in response to Pope Pius XII’s radio message to the Roman faithful, transmitted on Feb. 10, 1952.
In his “Proclamation for a Better World,” as it came to be known, Venerable Pius XII exhorted his “beloved children” to take action.
