The Nonviolence and Just Peace Conference Statement: An Appeal to the Catholic Church to Re-commit to the Centrality of Gospel Nonviolence

Education for Justice | Thu, Aug 18, 2016

"As Christians committed to a more just and peaceful world we are called to take a clear stand for creative and active nonviolence and against all forms of violence. With this conviction, and in recognition of the Jubilee Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis, people from many countries gathered at the Nonviolence and Just Peace Conference sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and Pax Christi International on April 11-13, 2016 in Rome."
