March 08, 2016

As the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Community (COMECE) gathered in Brussels on March 3 to discuss “Europe’s vocation to promote peace in the world,” Cardinal Reinhard Marx, COMECE’s president, called upon Europe to be a “constructive actor” on behalf of peace.

“The question of peace is more important than ever,” he said, as he called for reflection on how “Europe can be a constructive actor for peace in the world, particularly in its immediate neighborhood in the Middle East and in North Africa but also in Ukraine.”
