Pope Prays for Nuclear Disarmament

Reuters

Pope Francis on Sunday called on world leaders to work in favor of nuclear disarmament to protect human rights, particularly those of weaker and underprivileged people, Reuters reports.

The pontiff said that there was a need to “work with determination to build a world without nuclear weapons”, speaking from the window of the papal apartment overlooking St. Peter’s Square and citing his 2015 encyclical letter Laudato Si (Praised Be).

 His remarks came on the day that the group which won this year’s Nobel Peace Prize urged nuclear nations to adopt a U.N. treaty banning atomic weapons.

 With rising tensions between the United States and North Korea, the pope has repeatedly warned against the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental effects of nuclear devices and has called for a third country to mediate the dispute.
