This day, created only in 2019, coincided on the calendar with Francis’ visit to the United Arab Emirates, where the head of the Catholic church signed a document called “the Eternal Fraternity” with Imam Al Tayeb, where he is firmly condemning the use of religions to feed hatred.

Now that, on Saturday, the world marked the 2nd international day that marks and honors the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief, Francisco tells the world through Twitter that the Creator does not want to see his name used for the purpose of promoting violence and launched a request to that effect.

“Everyone should stop using religions to incite violence and hatred and blind extremism and fanaticism,” the Catholic leader said in this digital message.
