E-mail Print PDF

The Holy See used the opportunity of the 57th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (AIEA) to renew its call “upon the leaders of nations to put an end to nuclear weapons production and to transfer nuclear material from military purpose to peaceful activities”.

The Most Reverend Dominique Mamberti, Secretary for Relations with States of the Holy See, addressed the Conference, held in Vienna on 16 September, 2013. Archbishop Mamberti also noted that “this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Papal Encyclical Pacem in Terris of Blessed Pope John XXIII”.

Next week, during the Plenary Assembly of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace is leading a reflection on the continuing pastoral pertinence of Pacem in Terris.
