1983 peace theme

POPE JOHN PAUL will repeat his plea for a real dialogue of peace, in place of the empty discussions and selfishness which often mark negotiations, in his message for the sixteenth World Day of Peace on January 1, 1983.

According to a statement recently released by the Vatican, which discusses the Pope's chosen theme, "The Dialogue of Peace: a Challenge for our Time", the Pope will continue to stress the issues he raised in his sermon at Coventry, in his address to President Reagan and in his message to the second special session of the United Nations General Assembly on Disarmament.

"The most immediate aspect of this theme is its necessity in the world we live in today," said the statement. Many tragic wars might have been avoided if negotiations and international conferences had not been so inconclusive.
