Nonviolence: A culture, a way of life

This past April marked the one year anniversary of the landmark Nonviolence and Just Peace conference in Rome. Gerry Lee, Director of the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, was one of the organizers of the conference and has continued to work with members of the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative to promote the vision and practice of active nonviolence at the heart of the Catholic Church.
