Pope to Scholas Occurrentes: don’t be afraid to dialogue

Bullying is born when the other is attacked and identity is diminished, said Pope Francis in a video message to Scholas Occurrents which organized an online conference on ‘bullying’.

In a video message to the youth Pope Francis on 21 June said, “Declare war on bullying, because bullying diminishes dignity; and gamble on dialogue, gamble on journeying together, gamble on the patience of listening to others. Then there will be true peace, and the same true peace will cause you to discover your own dignity”.

In conclusion Pope Francis encouraged the youth to go forward and not to be afraid to dialogue. “It is worth it” he said.
