Pope Francis has that the world is pretty much in the grips of its third world war. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church the spate of conflicts being around the world were effectively a "piecemeal" third world war. Speaking at a World War I memorial in Italy, the Pontiff : "War is madness. Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can of a third war - one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres and destruction." He : "War is irrational. Its only plan is to destruction. It to grow by destroying." He said the motives behind countries or groups to war "greed, intolerance, the lust for power".

Pope Francis has a number of repeated appeals for an end to the conflicts around the world. He has on those in Gaza, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine and many parts of Africa. Despite his anti-war stance, he has the use of force would legitimate to "unjust aggression" by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. He on all people to have a "conversion of heart" and putting selfish aims above those of humanity as a whole. Francis the pointless loss of life in WWI to what is globally today. He said: "For each one of the fallen of this senseless massacre, for all the victims of the mindless wars, in every age, humanity to weep, and this is the time to weep."
