Peace Dove

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta


In response to the horrific act of violence in Newtown, Connecticut yesterday (12/14/12)  we offer a few resources (NOTE: This list is by no way exhaustive) on gun violence and Catholic teaching on this issue which can be found below.   Sadly, this resource was originally developed earlier this year after the tragic shootings at the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.   As a network of individuals and institutions committed to justice and peace, we join the entire country in praying for the victims, their families, and those responsible.  During this Advent season, we especially pray for hope that we can collectively work for a more peaceful world.

Prayer & Reflection Resources:


“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral; returning violence with violence only multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
