One response to “NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT: An invitation to join the Catholic Nuclear Weapon Abolition Webinar on May 17th

  1. Thank you Pax Christi,
    I hope you find this new documentary supportive, encourgaging and deeply informative for all those concerned with nuclear weapons, and our planet. Thank you for your focus and efforts…. for decades of being there, here on this. Fr. Dan Berrigan’s wake and funeral was such a profound gathering of souls, and I know a number of you were there with.

    “Good Thinking” is a documentary on those who tried to push back on nuclear weapons, four plus years in the making. Perhaps little new to you here, but for the general public I hope it helps to widen the perspective, deepen the knowledge base and history, and encourage us all forward.

    Because of the recent dangerous, irresponsible remarks of U.S. Presidential candidates about nuclear weapons, I’ve chosen not to wait until after our elections for the November film festivals and release it now to the public.

    DVD’s also are now being made for groups. (some are watching it in two sittings). I welcome critical feedback, and welcome talk backs to groups.

    I grant permission to share the below in any/every way you wish, to all concerned or interested. Feel free to post.
