Pope Calls For New World Order
January 2, 2004
Pope John Paul rang in the new year yesterday with a renewed call for peace in the Middle East and Africa and the creation of a new world order based on respect for the dignity of man and equality among nations.
The Pope presided over a morning Mass at St Peter's Basilica to mark the World Day of Peace, which the Catholic Church celebrates every January 1. He appeared in good form, delivering his homily in a strong and clear voice.
This year the Pope directed his thoughts to continuing conflicts around the globe.
But he stressed that to bring about peace, there needed to be a new respect for international law and the creation of a "new international order" based on the goals of the United Nations.
He lamented continuing violence between Israel and the Palestinians and offered prayers for his ambassador to Burundi, Archbishop Michael Courtney, who was killed this week.

"By the end of this decade we will live under the first One World Government that has ever existed in the society of nations...
...a government with ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY to decide the basic issues of human survival. One world government is inevitable."
-Pope John Paul II (from Malachi Martin's, The Keys of This Blood, 1990).
