Pope Francis Deserves to Win Nobel Peace Prize


Pope Francis, should be awarded With the Nobel Peace Prize!

The Vatican Holy See, the United States President Barack Obama and the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon ought to take into account the reasonable fact that Pope Francis deserves to win the Nobel Peace Prize for his advocacy for sowing peace, harmony, trust, respect, love and hope around the globe.

All Pope Francis’ visits which recently did in some states of America (Washington, New York, Philadelphia etc.) on September this year left a deep positive impressions to people because their messages had common denominator: humanism, philanthropy, solidarity, equality, reconciliation, collaboration, well-being, ecumenism, justice, respect of the human rights and freedom.

The high conscience, the love to people in global dimensions, sincerity, dignity, willpower, sacrifice and readiness of Pope Francis’ for the better world are solid proof that Pope Francis be awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize.

His eagerness to sow global peace unites the whole humane community of the world.

The visit of Pope Francis AND His meeting in the White House with President Barack Obama, his speech to the US Congress, as well was historic and unforgettable for all of us because his messages were addressed to all people around the world. He called to work and act together to protect and preserve universal human values of the civilization (freedom, order, justice, solidarity, democracy, peace, coexistence and well-being in compliance with objectives and principles of the United Nations Charter and international law, valid for the entire international community.

According to Hillary Clinton, Pope Francis is an outstanding personality of the modern history. Absolutely, I agree with this axiomatic assessment of Hillary Clinton that “Pope Francis is clearly one of the important religious and moral leaders not only in the world today but in modern history. He forces us to address some of the major issues facing humanity: war, income and wealth inequality, poverty, unemployment, greed, the death penalty and other issues that too many prefer to ignore.”(FB, September 24,2015).

Therefore, on this basis of the philosophy of humanism, progress, peace and the future of humanity, the Holy See of the Vatican, US President Barack Obama and Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki Moon, they ought to nominate Pope Francis for the Nobel Prize. Without any doubt Pope Francis is the most humane, dignified,conciliator, unifying, progressive and peace-loving personality in the world.

This was confirmed by his messages during a four-day journey to America, addressing to all people and in his historical speech at the American Congress where he was received in the most magnificent, with warm hospitality and love by all of the congressmen and the United States President Barack Obama. Meeting with President Obama (September 23)

During the friendly and cordial meeting with US President Barack Obama at the White House, the Pope began his talk dedicated to “respect for religious freedom,” noting that he and the Catholics of America do not seek to exercise any kind of discrimination against others, but together with their fellow Catholic Americans “are committed to building a society which is truly tolerant and inclusive, to safeguarding the rights of individuals and communities, and to rejecting every form of injustice, discrimination”

Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama told Pope Francis that in America, it is common legal and democratic practice among Americans to respect religious freedom, which is the fundamental basis for human life in United States of America.

In this spirit, upholding religious freedom, Obama assured Pope Francis: “The faithful are imprisoned, and churches are destroyed. So we stand with you in defense of religious freedom and interfaith dialogue, knowing that people everywhere must be able to live out their faith free from fear and free from intimidation.”

Pope Francis also thanked President Obama for the normalization of US-Cuba relations at the White House in Washington,on 23 September 2015, when Obama said these words: “Holy Father, we are grateful for your invaluable support of our new beginning with the Cuban people, which holds out the promise of better relations between our countries, greater cooperation across our hemisphere, and a better life for the Cuban people.

The Pope’s Message to the American Congress

Pope Francis’ speech at the American Congress was focused on these issues: “Let us treat others with the same passion and compassion which we want to be treated. … Let us set for others the same possibilities which we seek for ourselves. We need a dialogue about our common home, we need a conversation which includes everyone … Abolition of death penalty, racial injustice, weapons trade, stopping the most damaging effects of climate change, wealth inequality, offering immigrants a better chance at life rather than deporting them, inequality, incomes, poverty, create possibility and hope for all.”

With these Francis’ observations has been agreed and the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said: “Pope Francis is clearly one of the important religious and moral leaders not only in the world today but in modern history. He addresses some of the major issues facing humanity: war, income and wealth inequality, poverty, unemployment, greed, the death penalty and other issues that too many prefer to ignore.” (FB, September 24,2015).

Pope Francis by right stressed the necessity of implementing a cohesive and consistent laws and international legal norms, adopted under the UN since the end of World War II(1945) until today (2015) because these are the most important instruments and more effective way to protect the international “environment,” human rights and freedom.

“War is the negation of all rights and a dramatic assault on the environment,” he said. “If we want true integral human development for all, we must work tirelessly to avoid war between nations and between peoples.

Mrs. Clinton said the Pope is a great personality of our day, active and productive in the recovery of humanism, solidarity, active coexistence and peace to all mankind on global dimensions. So, undoubtedly Pope Francis deserves to be honored as a laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize.
