«Forse non ci rendiamo conto che le vittime civili non sono “danni collaterali”. Sono uomini e donne con nomi e cognomi che perdono la vita. Sono bambini che rimangono orfani e privati del futuro. Sono persone che soffrono la fame, la sete e il freddo o che rimangono mutilate a causa della potenza degli ordigni moderni. Se riuscissimo a guardare ciascuno di loro negli occhi, a chiamarli per nome e ad evocarne la storia personale, guarderemmo alla guerra per quello che è: nient’altro che un’immane tragedia e “un’inutile strage” ; che colpisce la dignità di ogni persona su questa terra».

Così si è espresso papa Francesco nel discorso al corpo diplomatico presso la Santa Sede di lunedì 8 gennaio.
