Pope Benedict XVI has chosen ‘family’ to be the theme for the World Day of Peace 2008. The Vatican press office announced that the message for the peace day will be published December 11, and that it will be titled The Human Family: Community of Peace. The World Day of Peace will be observed January 1, 2008.
Dear children! I rejoice because of all of you who are on the way of holiness and I beseech you, by your own testimony help those who do not know how to live in holiness. Therefore, dear children, let your family be a place where holiness is birthed. Help everyone to live in holiness, but especially your own family. Thank you for having responded to my call.
