For A Non-Violent Culture – The Pope Video


Let us all resolve to strongly support non-violence. As the Pope says, “Living, speaking, and acting without violence is not surrendering, losing or giving up anything, but aspiring to everything.” This year marks the 60th anniversary of St. John XXIII’s Encyclical Pacem in Terris, and Francis brings the message of this encyclical back to the forefront by reminding us that “Any war, any armed confrontation, always ends in defeat for all.” In his April video, produced by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, he makes a request at the end: “Let us make non-violence a guide for our actions, both in daily life and in international relations”.
