Pope gives peace theme

"FROM" A NEW heart, peace is born" is the theme of the 1984 World Day of Peace, the Vatican has announced.

Pope John Paul chose the theme to stress his belief that conversion of hearts is "the basic path toward the attainment of peace," a Vatican statement said.

The communique noted "the grave threats to which peace is being subjected in many parts of the world at the present time," it did not mention any specific problem areas.

"There is no valid reason for denying humanity's right to peace."
