CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis repeated his argument that the world should avoid “a so-called return to normality” after the Covid epidemic, in a message to the 4th Paris Peace Forum. The Pontiff called for “collective commitment to integral disarmament.”

Decrying a world marked by “nationalism, protectionism, individualism, and isolation, the Pope said “we need a new way out.” He rejected national defense based on deterrence, saying that the approach “has in many cases proved fallacious, leading to major humanitarian tragedies.”
