Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Pope Francis

“True peace is not… a lovely ‘façade’ which conceals conflicts and divisions. Peace calls for daily commitment.”
~ Pope Francis, in his first Christmas message

Being a vegan advocate in today’s society, especially among family and friends, sometimes may cause tension and stress in relationships; however, as Pope Francis points out (in his first Christmas message), it’s important to be true to our values and be committed to them, with respect and kindness to our fellow beings, without compromising them. Otherwise, maintaining peace while trumping our values is not true peace. As Philip Wollen says, "True peace is not the absence of war but the presence of justice."
