World Day of Peace 2017 - In August, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis has chosen “Nonviolence: A style of politics for peace” as the theme for the 2017 World Day of Peace. Read the press statement from Vatican Radio here.  Inspired by both St. Pope John XXIII’s encyclical Pacem in terris and his own encyclical Populorum progressio, Pope Paul VI introduced the commemoration of the World Day of Peace in 1967; it is now celebrated every year on 1 January.
