Join us on Good Friday, April 2, 2021, for a virtual Way of the Cross.
The work of the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns on peace is focused on identifying and eliminating the root causes of violence and conflict with a focus on specific regions, expressions of violence and areas of conflict affecting Maryknollers, and U.S. aggression and national security policy (e.g. war on terrorism and war in Iraq and Afghanistan).The nexus of violence and poverty is clear. Unless we dedicate ourselves to building true human security for all, nations – especially poor ones – will continue to fall victim to an unending cycle of economic, political and social violence.
This 10-page guide offers reflections, questions, prayers, and actions based on the Gospel readings and testimonies of Catholic peacemakers on Jesus' teachings about nonviolence.
This slim volume contains lovely, thought-provoking reflections from missioners who have spent years living with impoverished and marginalized communities around the world.
In a recent letter to Congress, the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (MOGC) and 14 other Christian groups urged the U.S. to investigate possible human rights and weapon violations by the government of Israel.
