POPE FRANCIS : "I WONDER IF PEACE IS TRULY BEING SOUGTH ! "  1/5/2022 

 "I suffer and weep, thinking of the sufferings of the Ukrainian people, and in particular, the weakest, the elderly and children. There are even terrible reports of children being expelled and deported.

And while we are witnessing a macabre regression of humanity, I wonder, along with so many anguished people, if peace is truly being sought; whether there is the will to avoid a continued military and verbal escalation; whether everything possible is being done to silence the weapons. I beg you, let us not surrender to the logic of violence, to the perverse spiral of weapons. May the path of dialogue and peace be taken!"

POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR DE-ESCALATION OVER WAR IN UKRAINE  3/7/2022

Pope Francis renews his appeal for peace in Ukraine, and calls on the international community to step back from confrontational rhetoric

“Let us continue to pray for peace in Ukraine and throughout the world."

Pope Francis said peace cannot be based “on the balance of arms or mutual fear”, saying such a strategy would “turn the clock back by seventy years.”

“I appeal to the Heads of Nations and International Organizations to react to the tendency to accentuate conflict and confrontation.”

Overcoming confrontational rhetoric

The Pope said the war in Ukraine “should have—and still could—become a challenge for wise statesmen capable of building a better world for future generations through dialogue.”

“With God’s help, this is always possible!”

However, added Pope Francis, nations need to turn from a paradigm in which the world is divided among conflicting powers and toward a world united in mutual respect.

“We need to move away from strategies based on political, economic, and military power and toward a project for global peace.”

AESI PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Prof. Massimo María Caneva 
MD PhD

"I believe that peace is possible even today when such a ferocious aggression seems to obscure the ways of hope in Europe, even when there seems to be no longer a light that illuminates diplomacy and dialogue! But we must always strive to promote the culture of Solidarity and Peace especially in the new generations!

Yes, peace is always possible if we live it firsthand and seek it and prepare it together with others, before devastating weapons destroy life. We must urgently prepare the new generations to do much to prevent and act for peace, especially now!

Shut up arms in Ukraine devastated by the violence of ideology and war without limits because it is time to find peace!

It is no coincidence that the AESI Scientific Committee wanted to give this title to the next 2023 Study Seminars "Crisis and Diplomacy: is there a way to Peace?"

Firm condemnation for the war in Ukraine on our part, but never closing the doors to those who wish or have not yet tried to dialogue !
