ARCHBISHOP WARNS AGAINST LACK OF SENSITIVITY IN THE FACE OF WAR

          NEW YORK, 14 (NE) "What is the heart of the papal message to the world? That it doesn't matter how 'smart' our bombs are; war itself is becoming increasingly insane," stated Cardinal John O'Connor, Archbishop of New York, recalling the words of the Pope's last "Urbi et Orbi" message.

          Cardinal O'Connor urged to seriously listen to the words of the Holy Father and his appeal for peace. "The only way to peace with justice, our Holy Father makes clear in his first encyclical, is man himself. Man is the way," he emphasized. "Unless and until we come to believe in the sacredness of every human person, (...) there can be no lasting peace with justice."

          New York's Archbishop also called to pay attention to the insensitivity in the face of human suffering that the entertainment culture of our days generates. He warned on "how terrifyingly easy we disconnect ourselves from the sufferings of the war and its consequences."
