Education will be Pope's theme for next World Day of Peace:

Catholic World News - May 19, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI has chosen the theme for his message for next World Day of Peace: "Educating Young People in Justice and Peace."

The World Day of Peace is observed on January 1. The Pope’s message for that day, which will be released later this year, will emphasize the “duty incumbent upon the present generation to prepare future ones, and creating for them the conditions that will allow these future generations to express freely and responsibly the urgency for a 'new world,’” the Vatican has disclosed.
