“Crimes, massacres and destruction” were the words used by the Pontiff to define and describe war, which “ruins everything, even the bonds between brothers”. The Pope has made several references to the first World War commemorating more than 100,000 fallen Italian soldiers believed to be buried in the Fascist-era military graveyard. Pope Francis don’t hesitated to reveal one of the real motivations of the actual conflicts. “How is this possible? It is so because in today’s world, behind the scenes, there are interests, geopolitical strategies, lust for money and power, and there is the manufacture and sale of arms, which seem to be so important.”, he said. This was a new and strong call for all the nations to reinstate peace and probably the Holy Father will make this a central point of his activity in the future.
