Does It Matter? Will You Shed Tears?

Are we living in a boiling cauldron which is brewing WWIII?

Pope Francis spoke on the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War (13 September 1914), in a reflective and challenging way.

“even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction.”

“With the heart of a son, a brother, a father, I ask each of you, indeed for all of us, to have a conversion of heart: to move on from ‘What does it matter to me?’, to shed tears…humanity needs to weep, and this is the time to weep”.
