Strong Vatican Document on Financial Reform

In an article released October 21st, Tom Reese, S.J. of the Woodstock Theological Center alerts us to a new Vatican call for global financial reform that will be published October 24th.  Calling it "radical," he outlines some of the positions the document will underline.  A similar story appeared in CNS online.  This development supports the important work done by Aldo Caliari and his colleagues through the Center's Rethinking Bretton Woods Project.

In a recent statement to the UN, the Vatican stated:  “Nuclear weapons are incompatible with the peace we seek for the 21st century. They cannot be justified. They deserve condemnation. The preservation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty demands an unequivocal commitment to their abolition.” Survivors of those bombings in Japan are now calling the world to phase out the use of nuclear power after the tragedy at Fukushima.  Let us all speak out for peace.
