Day will come when nations will live in peace says Pope
Speaking to crowds of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis said that the day will come when nations will live in peace. He said it will be a great day in which weapons will be dismantled and transformed into instruments of work: “What a great day it will be”. And this – Pope Francis said – is possible. "Let’s put a bet on hope” – he continued – on hope for peace, and peace will be possible. He recalled the passage from the prophet Isaiah who speaks of a time when swords will be broken into plows and nations will live in peace.
The Pope also said that the first Sunday of the worship season before Christmas, in which the prophet said, "They shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks; One nation shall not raise the sword against another, nor shall they train for war again".
After the Angelus prayer before greeting the many groups present, Francis noted that today is World AIDS Day, the Pope did not fail to make a strong appeal so that all patients affected by the disease may have access to the care they need. “We express our solidarity with the people affected by HIV/Aids, especially children, and we express our closeness to the many missionaries and health operators who work in silence. We pray for everyone, also for physicians and researchers. May every sick person, without exception, have access to the care he or she needs".
