Return to Nonviolence in action

Catholic Nonviolence Initiative

The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative is a project of Pax Christi International which began out of a Conference co-hosted with the Vatican in Rome in 2016.  The Conference produced Appeal to the Catholic Church to Re-Commit to the Centrality of Gospel Nonviolence.  

Since then the project has grown.   In April 2019 a workshop was held in Rome at the Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development .  Here is  an extract from the statement from that gathering : In this kairos moment, we strongly urge the Church to bring nonviolence from the periphery of Catholic thought on war and peace to the center – to mainstream nonviolence as a spirituality, lifestyle, a program of societal action, and a universal ethic.

A fuller range of presentations and papers given at the gathering can be found here  including the following
