Pax Christi Southern California will hold their regional assembly on September 29, 2012 at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. The assembly is entitled “Blessed are the Peacemakers: Gospel Nonviolence and the Road to Peace,” and features Pax Christi USA Ambassador of Peace and author Fr. John Dear, S.J.
The flyer for the event states: Join us for a Pax Christi day of retreat and reflection on Gospel nonviolence and Christian peacemaking led by Fr. John Dear. In the morning, we will reflect on our life journey as peacemakers who follow the nonviolent Jesus out of the culture of violence and war into the new life of peace and nonviolence. In the afternoon the focus will be on forgiving our enemies. Together we will explore the basics of Gospel nonviolence and the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount—the Beatitudes of Peace.
