Download below the report that has been sent to Pope Francis.

Catholic Church leaders and local change makers from nearly 30 countries gathered in
Rome, Italy, December 5-7, 2022, to reflect on Pope Francis’ relentless work for
nonviolent change throughout his ten-year papacy; to share their own experience of
nonviolent change in the face of acute violence and injustice; and to explore next steps
in advancing the spirituality, way of life, strategies, and universal ethic of nonviolence in
the Church and the world.
The conference, entitled “Pope Francis, Nonviolence and the Fullness of Pacem in
Terris,” was sponsored by Pax Christi International’s Catholic Nonviolence Initiative
and the Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation Commission of the Union of Superiors
General-Union of International Superiors General (USG-UISG), the international
unions of superiors of women’s and men’s religious orders. Pacem in Terris was a
foundational document for Pax Christi International and our continued work for a
nonviolent world order that is “founded on truth, built up on justice, nurtured and
animated by charity, and brought into effect under the auspices of freedom.” (Pacem in
Terris #167)
