January 1, 2021 - 54th World Day of Peace

On 17 December 2020, the Holy See published the Holy Father’s Message for the 54th World Day of Peace, which will be celebrated on 1 January 2021. The theme chosen by Pope Francis is “A Culture of Care as a Path to Peace“. In his message, the Holy Father states: “The culture of care thus calls for a common, supportive and inclusive commitment to protecting and promoting the dignity and good of all, a willingness to show care and compassion, to work for reconciliation and healing, and to advance mutual respect and acceptance. As such, it represents a privileged path to peace.”
