Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns publishes Advent guide inspired by the Nonviolence and Just Peace Conference
Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, Advent, Rome conference, nonviolence and just peace
The Advent Reflection Guide for 2016 from the Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns contains reflections, questions, prayers, and actions based on each week’s Gospel reading and the discussions by Catholic peacemakers who attended the landmark Nonviolence and Just Peace conference in Rome in April 2016.
Advent offers us all a special opportunity to grow in our relationship with God and to deepen our commitment to Jesus' way of life, rooted in nonviolence. Use this guide individually or in small groups to reflect upon our life patterns, to pray more deeply, and renew our spirits to face the realities of our world.
