Today I am taking sides
Prayer for World Peace

In his Message for World Day of Peace, Pope Francis reflects on the fast-moving advancements in science and technology and calls all people of goodwill to consider the ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI). He suggests to people of all religions that making strong choices, to use such technology in the pursuit of Peace and Harmony, is crucial.

“May … men and women of good will work together in harmony
to embrace the opportunities and confront the challenges
posed by the digital revolution and thus hand on to future generations
a world of greater solidarity, justice 
and peace.”  –  Pope Francis
