The International Community Must Not Resign Itself to the Tragedy of Christians in the Middle East VIS NEWS - HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE - April 30, 2015 ... West and in the East, the governor Pilate's poignant question remains alive: 'Quid est veritas?', 'What is truth?', followed by his search and service to it. The truth is first and foremost an act of removing every veil and covering from reality. It cannot be denied that if a solution has not yet been found it is certainly because the problems are many and complex, and also touch upon the internal relations between the different groups of ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-international-community-must-not.html
