At a time of renewed war, Pope Francis issues a powerful call for peace. From the beginning of his papacy, Pope Francis has made concern for peace and nonviolence one of his signature themes. From his travels to Iraq and other war-torn regions to his prophetic homilies in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he has called the world to pursue a different path. This timely volume, prompted by the crisis in Ukraine, gathers his essential writings on war and the cause of peace, beginning with an eloquent and prophetic introduction: "War is a sacrilege. Let's stop feeding it!"
