One thought on “STATEMENT: The Challenge and Support of Pax Christi USA by Pope Francis

  1. Was the choice made by PCUSA to forego quoting the most specific thing Pope Francis said about War and preparation for war, namely this: “Being at the service of dialogue and peace also means being truly determined to minimize and, in the long term, to end the many armed conflicts throughout the world. Here we have to ask ourselves: Why are deadly weapons being sold to those who plan to inflict untold suffering on individuals and society? Sadly, the answer, as we all know, is simply for money: money that is drenched in blood, often innocent blood. In the face of this shameful and culpable silence, it is our duty to confront the problem and to stop the arms trade.” (US Congress, Sept 24, 2015)
