Press Release of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, 13.11.2021

55th World Day of Peace

“Education, work and dialogue between generations: tools for building lasting peace” is the title of the Message for the next World Day of Peace.

Pope Francis thus identifies three vast contexts today in full mutation, in order to propose an innovative reading that responds to the needs of current and future times, inviting everyone “to read the signs of the times with the eyes of faith, so that the direction of this change should raise new and old questions which it is right that we should face” (Pope Francis, Address to the Roman Curia on the occasion of the presentation of Christmas greetings, 21 December 2019).

How can education and upbringing build lasting peace?

Does work, in the world, respond more or less to the vital needs of human beings for justice and freedom?

Are the generations truly in solidarity with each other? Do they believe in the future? Does the government of societies succeed in establishing a prospect of peace in this context?
