Last year, JustFaith Ministries in collaboration with Pax Christi USA published an excellent resource for small groups entitled, Just Peacemaking Initiative: The Challenge and Promise of Nonviolence for Our Time.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Pope John XXIII’s encyclical Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth), JustFaith Ministries is now including in the module a Special Supplement: 50th Anniversary of Pacem in Terris. This document was created by Pax Christi USA National Council member Scott Wright, the author of the module itself, for groups who want to highlight and provide additional content related to this critical 1963 encyclical.
The supplement is designed to provide excerpts from the encyclical that correlate to the four main sections/priorities defined in the module:
- Spirituality of Nonviolence and Peacemaking
- Just Peacemaking and Economic and Interracial Justice
- Just Peacemaking, Disarmament and Reconciliation with Justice
- Just Peacemaking, Human Rights, and Global Restoration
This new material can be substituted for existing sections of Sessions 1, 4, 7 & 10. Suggested discussion questions are included.
