Aboard the papal plane, Jan 15, 2018 / 17:17 pm
En route from Italy to Chile on Monday, Pope Francis told journalists of his concerns about war, and especially the use of nuclear weapons, giving each of them a photo of a child in Nagasaki.
On the back of the photo is printed "the fruits of war", and it is signed by Pope Francis.
"I was moved when I saw this photo, and I dared to write only 'the fruits of war'. I thought of printing it to distribute it because it is more moving than 1,000 words," the Pope told journalists Jan. 15.
The photo is of a boy carrying the body of his brother while in line at a crematorium in Nagasaki in the wake of the Aug. 9, 1945 atomic bombing of the city by the US.
