Editorial:
Persecution of Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq.
“The news
coming from Iraq seem incredible and leaves us all in dismay: Thousands of people, including
many Christians, driven from their homes in a brutal manner; children dying of thirst and
hunger during their escape; women seized; people slaughtered; violence of any kind; destruction
everywhere; destruction of homes, religious, historical and cultural sites. All this seriously
offends God and gravely offends humanity. Don’t bring hatred in the name of God! Don’t
make war in the name of God!” (Pope Francis at Angelus prayer, Sunday, August 10, 2014)

Newsbriefs- A Publication of the USG-UISG- Commission for Justice Peace and Integrity of Creation

Editorial: This month we remember two events that marked the history of the last two decades. While the first president of a new and democratic South Africa, Nelson Mandela, was pronouncing his famous ‘never again’ speech, another country, Rwanda, was going through one of the most tragic moments of its history. The Rwandan genocide reminds us that even though in the past century the world experienced such tragic events like world wars, we pray that these events should never happen again. In this sense, the canonization of the Popes John Paul II and John XXIII represents a Christian model for peace building and the struggle to build a better and fair world
