Back from the Brink

This article by PCMNY Director Rosemarie Pace highlights the messages of Pope Francis on his recent trip to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. It also includes links to an Open Letter to the People of Japan from Concerned Catholics in the U.S. and a prayer service prayed in solidarity with Pope Francis at St. John’s University in Jamaica, Queens. Perhaps most important, it provides you with information about the Back from the Brink Campaign being endorsed by Pax Christi USA, a means for all of us to encourage our local political officials to pass a resolution to adopt publicly a “Back from the Brink Call to Prevent Nuclear War.


Human Rights in Crisis: The Uigur

Adem Carroll returns to the pages of Kerux to present a very informative article on the plight of the Uigurs in China, a Muslim minority whose human rights are being denied. His article includes a call to action that is both practical and very much in the spirit of Pax Christi. He concludes with this sentence: “Besides changing our buying habits out of guilt, we can be inspired by a vision of love and a clearer vision of common humanity, refusing to allow minorities to be othered, erased, or exploited—anywhere.”
