World Day of Peace - 01 January.

On January 1st, the World Day of Peace invites all people to reflect upon the important work of building peace. It’s also a day for the Pope to give a special message that reflects the theme for the year and to pray for peace.

When trying to define peace, people often use words like tranquility, calm, and quiet. Some associate peace with law and order. No matter how the word is defined, most people enjoy the feeling of being at peace.

How to attain peace, however, can be difficult. This is especially true in a world that is full of strife, divisions, and political polarization. What is a societal norm in one culture is not acceptable in the next. These things also made it hard for different cultures to come together in a peaceful manner.

Pope Paul VI began the tradition of sharing a World Day of Peace Message on January 1, 1967. This tradition has continued through the years with St. John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis. In the past, messages have focused on human rights, women’s rights, the right to life, and peace in the Holy Land.
