#Cyberpeacefare #Pope Francis #Speech Joint Session of Congress

Just watched Pope Francis Speech to US Congress.  Very moving, inspirational, comprehensive need for human dialogue - many stand-up non-political party applauds. Conscience for humanity, common home, common good, "golden rule" , family, children, poverty , opportunity, life, death penalty, immigration, war and peace.  He appealed to audience to "please pray for me",  even if you don't believe wish me well"

Pope considers himself "bridge builder" (Pontiflex Twitter Site means bridge builder).

Courageous Religious Leadership for Humanity and Planet.

Believes in Hope and Dreams - Building Bridges for UsAll.

EXCERPTS: 

"Grateful for invitation to address this Joint Session of Congress in "the land of the free and the home of the brave."

Each son or daughter of a given country has a mission, a personal and social responsibility.

 

I would like to mention four of these Americans: Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton.

 

Our world is increasingly a place of violent conflict, hatred and brutal atrocities, committed even  in the name of God and religion.

We know no religion is immune from forms of individual delusion, or ideological extremism.

Our response must instead be one of hope and healing, of peace and justice.

We are asked to summon courage and the intelligence to resolve today's many geopolitical and economic crises.

The complexity, the gravity and the urgency of these challenges demand that we pool our resources and talents, and resolve to support one another with respect for our differences and our convictions of conscience. "

Yes! Hope ,healing, peace, justice is the watch word for all and sundry at crucial times like this.The conscious and courageous efforts to unleash these virtues/action will go a very long way to resolve many regional  crises with political and economic overtones indeed.The Pope has demonstrated an emulative  quality of good and exemplary leadership

Pope Francis asked usall to pray for him I prayed for the success of his world initiative for common good - common home - individual conscience for humanity, world peace, global zero nuclear weapons, religious interfaith leadership and especially for his safety and good health. Recited Our Fathers   (the Lord's Prayer).
