Pacem in Terris Anniversary Brisbane

Thursday 11 April is the 50th anniversary of Bl Pope John XXIII’s landmark encyclical, Pacem in Terris.  

In Pacem in Terris, John XXIII said that peace on earth is founded on the four pillars of truth, justice, love and freedom.  He insisted that respect for civil, political, social and economic human rights and the exercise of those responsibilities inextricably linked to these rights are essential for the establishment of peace on earth.

The Justice and Peace Commission will mark this important anniversary with a Mass to be celebrated in St Stephen’s Chapel (next to the Cathedral of St Stephen, Elizabeth Street, Brisbane) at 5.10 p.m. on Thursday 11 April.  

All are welcome to join in this celebration
