Nonviolence and the Web of Creation

This 30-minute webinar by the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns (MOGC) explores the connections between gospel nonviolence and care for our common home.  It was held in conjunction with the Pax Christi International-sponsored Catholic Nonviolence Days of Action, which take place annually between September 21st, the International Day of Peace, and October 2nd, International Day of Nonviolence. Dan Moriarty, Sustainable Pathways to Peace Coordinator for MOGC, hosted the seminar. Guest Tania Ávila, from Bolivia, is a Quechua Indigenous theologian, and serves as coordinator of the Bolivian Amerindia theologians network; on the Indigenous Peoples’ and Women’s teams of the Pan-Amazon Ecclesial Network (REPAM); and on the Integral Ecology Commission of the Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious.  Indigenous voices have much to teach us. As Pope Francis states in Laudato Si (#146) “ is essential to show special care for indigenous communities and their cultural traditions.”
