The 90-second video was produced by the Apostleship of Prayer in collaboration with the Vatican Television Center.

    "In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty we have for all. We are all children of God." Only one certainty? Ultimately the prayer intention is for peace and justice according to Pope Francis. But the Holy Father does not mention Christ, not even to cite the universal wisdom of the teachings of the historical figure. Dr. Warren Carroll used to say: "Truth exists. The Incarnation happened." Without these five words peace and justice are fantasies.
