Message of His Holiness Pope Paul VI for the Observance of a Day of Peace (January 1, 1968)

“We address Ourself to all men of good will to exhort them to celebrate ‘The Day of Peace’, throughout the world, on the first day of the year, January 1, 1968. It is Our desire that then, every year, this commemoration be repeated as a hope and as a promise, at the beginning of the calendar which measures and outlines the path of human life in time, that Peace with its just and beneficent equilibrium may dominate the development of events to come.”
