Ruins of the Berlin Wall: What They Whisper 25-Yrs Later

What remains of the Berlin Wall discloses a subtle yet stark reminder for civilisation to not “look to walls as solutions,” says German priest Father Bernd Hagenkord, S.J.

It's been twenty-five years to the day since the wall fell – an event which marked the beginning of the end of the decades-long Cold War, and served as a catalyst for Germany's reunification. The anniversary comes months after the canonisation of John Paul II, one of the core figures involved in the collapse of communism.
