In this session of the “Living the Gospel” series about 60 people met at Resurrection to learn about Pope Francis’ teachings on Gospel nonviolence. Participants heard how the Pope’s directives are being used effectively in global and local communities. Speakers were Marie Dennis, Co-President of Pax Christi International, Kevin Carroll of Maryknoll Office of Global Concerns, and M.J. Park, co-founder of DC-based Little Friends for Peace. In table groups, participants from the three “Living the Gospel” partner parishes generated a host of ideas to promote and apply the teachings on nonviolence to programs and practices in each parish.
