Resources for 2015 World Day of Peace:
The Vatican has announced the theme and title for the annual World Day of Peace message that Pope Francis will release on January 1: “Slaves No More, But Brothers and Sisters.”
In his 2015 Message for the World Day of Peace (January 1) Pope Francis urges us to recognize the "equal dignity" of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved and exploited and to work to end human trafficking, trade in migrants and prostitutes, slave labor, and the enslavement of women and children. (The text of the 2015 message will be posted at the above link in mid-December.)
Check out this two-page handout for a summary of the message and prayer and action ideas!
