World Day of Peace resources

On January 1, we celebrate the 2016 World Day of Peace. The theme of Pope Francis' message is "Overcome Indifference and Win Peace."  The Holy Father urges us to replace isolation with community, and indifference with solidarity. He challenges families, schools, and other institutions to foster awareness and avenues for response to problems such as intolerance, religious persecution, slavery, war, and the plight of refugees.  

Parishes might want to share this two-page handout now (also en Español) and encourage parishioners to celebrate the World Day of Peace with Pope Francis.
