Pope quotes on war

Violence and arms can never resolve the problems of men.


War is a defeat for humanity.


Wars generally do not resolve the problems for which they are fought and therefore... prove ultimately futile.


The United Nations organization has proclaimed 1979 as the Year of the Child. Are the children to receive the arms race from us as a necessary inheritance?


Humanity should question itself, once more, about the absurd and always unfair phenomenon of war, on whose stage of death and pain only remain standing the negotiating table that could and should have prevented it.


Social justice cannot be attained by violence. Violence kills what it intends to create.


Pope John Paul II
