Parolin urges interfaith peace action

Can't guarantee liberty through war says Vatican State sec'y

(ANSA) - Rome, October 28 - Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin on Wednesday called for more interfaith peace initiatives during the pope's Jubilee year, which begins December 8.
    "We hope more joint initiatives from the different world religious traditions will bear new fruits of peace during the imminent Jubilee Year of Mercy," the cardinal said in reference to the Interfaith Days of Peace in Assisi, first called for by Pope John Paul II in 1986. "Guaranteeing individual liberties is essential, but thinking one can do so through war is absurd," Parolin said.
