An blog by a member of the Catholic peace movement, Pax Christi, to explore the nexus between contemplation and resistance. "The Christian must discover in contemplation, and in the giving of his life, those symbolic actions which will ignite the people's faith to resist injustice with their whole lives, lives coming together as a united force of truth and thus releasing the liberating power of the God within them." - James Douglass, Contemplation and Resistance.

Benedict XVI on War
- Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, May 2, 2003.
Hope flashes in these words from a man devoted to precision of thought. May he lead us to love life in all its flourishes and will the death of nothing that he has made. May Jesus give us the strength to disarm our hearts.
