Pope's quotes: God's name is peace

A quote from Pope Francis:

"God's name is peace. The one who calls upon God's name to justify terrorism, violence and war does not follow God's path. War in the name of religion becomes a war against religion itself. With firm resolve, therefore, let us reiterate that violence and terrorism are opposed to an authentic religious spirit."

— Address for the World Day of Prayer for Peace, Assisi, Sept. 20, 2016
