The Evangelical Pope | Mistaken Ideologies Mislead Humanity

Each week we let Saint Pope John Paul II share meaningful signposts to spark socio-economic resolves through justice and righteousness combined with mercy and compassion; in short, love.

 

 

                6 … and the government will be on his shoulders.

                __ Isaiah 9: 6 (New International Version NIV)

 

Ayacucho, Peru 3 February 1985 | I now want to direct an emphatic word to those who have put their trust in armed combat.

 

               Mistaken ideologies mislead humanity.

 

               Terror and aggressiveness exacerbate the pitiable social tensions and violently provoke fierce confrontations.

 

               Evil is never a path to good.

 

Focus on doing good and building a better world fit for all.
