Humans are hard-wired for peace, says Benedict

January 14, 2013

Welcoming in the new year, Pope Benedict said that despite the injustice and violence in the world, every human being yearns for and is made for peace.

“Man is made for peace, which is a gift of God,” but also something individuals must work tirelessly to build, he said during a Jan. 1 Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica.
