“I am the resurrection and the life…” (Jn; 11:19-27)

It is with deep sadness that Pax Christi International informs you about the death of Bishop Luigi Bettazzi, one of the youngest and most junior participants in the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), early morning of 16 July 2023.

Bishop Luigi Bettazzi (1923) was a lifelong friend of Pax Christi International, who served as President of our international peace movement from 1978 to 1985.

Bishop Marc Stenger and Sister Wamuyu Wachira, Co-Presidents of Pax Christi International, and Martha Inés Romero, Secretary General, expressed their condolences in a heartfelt letter.
