Maria Esperanza of Venezuela and the war in Iraq: Prophecies Fulfilled?

"No, never again war, which destroys the lives of innocent people, teaches how to kill, throws into upheaval even the lives of those who do the killing and leaves behind a trail of resentment and hatred, thus making it all the more difficult to find a just solution of the very problems which provoked the war. Just as the time has finally come when in individual States a system of private vendetta and reprisal has given way to the rule of law, so too a similar step forward is now urgently needed in the international community."

- Pope John Paul II, Centesimus annus, 52, AAS 83 (1991) 857-858, OR, 6 May 1991.
