This is Nonviolence


In 2017, Pope Francis built his World Day of Peace message, “Nonviolence: A Style of Politics for Peace”, around the vision and practice of active nonviolence. For over 70 years, Pax Christi International and our member organisations have been bringing about peace and social change through the power of active nonviolence. In 2016, we launched the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative, a special project to “affirm the vision and practice of active nonviolence at the heart of the Catholic Church”.  We’re inviting all of our member organisations, supporters and partners, Catholics and other people of good will to help us spread the message of the vitality and strength of active nonviolence in a variety of ways, including by sharing stories on the theme of nonviolence here on the Peace Stories blog.
