CWN Editor's Note: The invasion of Normandy “was decisive in the fight against Nazi barbarism” and paved the way for the end of World War II, Pope Francis said in a message to the bishop of Bayeux-Lisieux for the 75th anniversary D-Day. “That is why I remember with gratitude all the soldiers who ... had the courage to commit themselves and give their lives for freedom and peace.”
