Catholic World News - August 05, 2013

Cardinal Peter Turkson, the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is visiting Japan this week, to participate in the "Ten Days of Peace" observances marking the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

In his homily at a Mass celebrated in Hiroshima on August 5, Cardinal Turkson spoke of the Church's role in promoting world peace:

Having received the forgiving and reconciling peace of the Risen Lord, the disciples are sent forth and enabled by the gift of the Holy Spirit to carry out: to preach, a ministry of forgiveness and reconciliation.
