Santa Fe's Archbishop Wester Urges Nuclear Disarmament
in New Pastoral Letter
In a new pastoral letter, Archbishop John C. Wester of Santa Fe, New Mexico, urges the local community and the world to join “a renewed commitment to the cause of peace” with the goal of eliminating all global nuclear weapons arsenals.
The document, “Living in the Light of Christ’s Peace: A Conversation Toward Nuclear Disarmament,” challenges conventional political thinking that possessing nuclear weapons serves as a deterrence to potential attacks from other nuclear powers.
One of the things that sets Pax Christi apart from other peace organizations is our emphasis on the spirituality of nonviolence. When we take time to center ourselves, be open to the voice of God whispering guidance, and maintain mindfulness in the midst of chaos, we believe we are better able to focus on what God calls us to do to find peace within our own lives, and then with our families, our neighborhoods, our country, and our world.
We believe that part of our responsibility as non-violent peacemakers is to "know the facts".
We encourage you to talk to people with direct experience, read accounts from all perspectives, and check out websites & links like those listed here for additional information and helpful resources
