from Pax Christi International
On 25 May, Pax Christi International Co-President Marie Dennis addressed the 2015 General Chapter of the Ordo Fratrum Minorum (Franciscans), in Assisi. In a challenging lecture, she spoke about the urgency of working towards human and economic relationships based on the Christian and Franciscan principles of peace and of universal sister- and brotherhood. She asked the assembly to consider which of the challenges she presented are most urgent. Her questions led to a reflection, first in the various Chapter groups, then later in the prayerful atmosphere which characterised the final session of the day – a contemplative reading of the Word of God.
