Instruments of Reconciliation

A National Campaign to Amplify Active Nonviolence in the U.S. Catholic Church

Blessed Paul VI, in the first World Day of Peace Message, boldly declared “Peace is the only true direction of human progress.”

Fifty years later, Pope Francis claimed, “Whoever accepts the Good News of Jesus is able to acknowledge the violence within and be healed by God’s mercy, becoming in turn an instrument of reconciliation.” (50th World Day of Peace, para. 3).
