Pope Francis on fraternity – Message for World Day of Peace 2014

francis doveJust a short notification that my translation of Pope Francis’ Message for the World Day of Peace is now available via this link and the ‘Translations into Dutch’ page at the top of the blog.

The original text is, of course, available via the Vatican website, here. It’s a good text, and when I started reading it I couldn’t help but notice that Pope Francis follows very much in the thoughts of his predecessor, especially in the first section and the following exegesis of the story of Cain and Abel. Of course, the text also bears Francis’ stamp, in its topic of fraternity and the almost radical steps we need to take to achieve it.

Francis is not Benedict, but the two are not that different. And that’s a good thing.
